CARE Magazine Distribution Goes Bi-Annual

The distribution of CARE magazine is changing. The regulatory-oriented nursing magazine, produced by the College of Licensed Practical Nurses of Alberta and delivered to over 20,000 LPNs and subscribers, is transitioning from a quarterly to a bi-annual publication.

CARE will be published twice in 2021, a Spring/Summer issue in April and a Fall/Winter issue in September.

In 2018, peak distribution as a paper-based publication was over 18,000 copies. That same year, the CLPNA’s members were offered the option to receive the magazine in a digital-only format, which proved popular, resulting in online subscriptions growing from 43% to 63%. The digital issue, while appealing to modern reading trends, has also had a positive impact on the environment by reducing paper consumption.


CARE magazine shares information on Licensed Practical Nurse regulation issues, evidence-informed research, nursing policies and practices, and healthcare trends.

CARE magazine is available on and by subscribing to the CLPNA’s email service.
