On January 1, 2022, Registration Renewal at the College of Licensed Practical Nurses of Alberta’s will close. LPNs who have not renewed for 2022 will have their practice permit suspended.
HOW TO REINSTATE FOR 2022
Those still wishing to register should review the instructions on “Previously Licensed in Alberta“. Those with suspended permits will be charged a $300 registration levy if registering in January. Permits not reinstated by January 31, 2022 will be cancelled, as per the Health Professions Act.
FINES, FEES, DISCIPLINE IF WORKING WITHOUT A PERMIT
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’.
The process to become reinstated may take weeks and involves the CLPNA’s Registration and Complaints Departments. Fees totaling $780 must be paid, and a $500 Complaints Fee if the applicant worked without a valid permit.
The repercussions of working with an expired or invalid practice permit are serious and impact both an LPN’s registration and disciplinary status. All employers will be notified immediately as the nurse must stop working until the practice permit has been reinstated.
