Annual Registration Renewal for Alberta’s Licensed Practical Nurses begins October 1 for 2020.
The CLPNA encourages all LPNs to renew before December 1 to pay the lowest registration fee of $350.
For those who delay, the renewal fee is $550 when submitted between December 2 to 31.
On January 1, those who have not renewed will have their practice permit suspended. Those suspended but still wishing to renew between January 1 to 31 must complete a Reinstatement Application and pay $650.
Formal notices will be sent by email from the CLPNA’s Registrar.
Prepaying Registration Renewal Fees for 2021
Splitting up payments for future fees is available. The Pre-Authorized Payment Plan (PAP) is a CLPNA payment option that allows members to pay their 2021 Registration Renewal Fee using automatic bank withdrawals of $35/month for 10 months.
REMEMBER: Don’t Practice Without a Permit
Anyone found working as an LPN with an expired or invalid Practice Permit may be subject to disciplinary action from the CLPNA, including $500+ fines.
Only those individuals with a current CLPNA Practice Permit are authorized to work as an LPN in Alberta or use the title ‘Licensed Practical Nurse’ or ‘LPN’ as stated in Schedule 10 of the Health Professions Act and Section 12 of the LPN Profession Regulation.
