“The 2018 LPN Member Survey…aimed for a comprehensive understanding of LPN work-life, work environments, and the profession itself.”
Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs) face many physical, emotional, and social challenges in their work which can lead to absenteeism, turnover, anxiety, and burnout. A strong healthy workforce can support the highest level of safety for the public.
An analysis of Alberta’s Licensed Practical Nurses is now available in a new report.
Last summer, 4425 LPNs, or 28% of registered LPNs, completed the 2018 Member Survey by the College of Licensed Practical Nurses of Alberta (CLPNA). This survey aimed for a comprehensive and well-rounded understanding of LPNs work-life in Alberta, their work environments, and of the profession itself.
Understanding the context in which LPNs work is an essential step in creating better work practices and environments, benefiting both the profession and ultimately the quality of care for patients. The information collected will inform CLPNA’s activities that support LPNs in continuing to provide safe, high-quality care for the public.
The CLPNA is committed to ensuring Alberta’s LPNs can adapt to shifting care needs and continue providing safe ethical care.
