  1. I received my full licence mid July if this year. What education is required to renew when you have it help your licence for a few months and is the cost still $350 before Dec 1st or is there a refused rate. It will be my first time renewing so I would like to make sure I do not miss any steps in doing so. Thank you

  2. I will not be renewing my license for 2020. How Will I be reimbursed those funds? I’ve been paying monthly.

  3. I will be writing my exam this September. Does it mean i have to renew my license right after i pass? I did not have any job as LPN yet.

      Members who, for any reason:

        do not plan to practice as an LPN in Alberta,
        but want to continue receiving CARE magazine, practice updates & renewal notices,
        ensures the member’s practice hours are recorded, and completion of Continuing Competence Learning Plan are on file

      are encouraged to renew as an Associate for $50. Associate status does not allow you to work as an LPN. Associates wishing to return to work as an LPN in the future must meet all registration requirements when reinstating.
