Due to the many challenges arising from the COVID-19 pandemic, the College of Licensed Practical Nurses of Alberta (CLPNA) has cancelled its Continuing Competence Program Audit for 2020. The program, originally scheduled for May – June, had been previously deferred.
The annual audit measures compliance with the Continuing Competence Program. Though an audit will not be conducted, the CLPNA’s registrants must still comply with CCP requirements through the Registration Renewal process.
