Changes Coming to LPN Registration Dates in 2024
The College of Licensed Practical Nurses of Alberta’s Council recently approved a change to the registration year.
Starting in 2024, practice permits will be valid from December 1 – November 30, moving back the registration renewal period by one month to begin on September 1. This change will address the feedback from registrants and employers over the years that the current registration renewal period (ending December 31) is challenging during the holiday season.
What does this mean for Registration Renewal?
Nothing will change in 2023, the renewal period for the 2024 practice permit will remain as October 1 – December 31, 2023.
Registration fees will remain the same, however they will be adjusted for the 2024 registration year only to reflect the temporary 11-month transition period.
Beginning in 2024, the annual registration renewal period for the 2025 practice permit will be September 1 – November 30.

LPNs participating in the PAD program in 2023
Those participating in the Pre-Authorized Debit Plan (PAD) will see a change in their payments for 2023 only. As those who take part in the program will be paying for their 2024 fees in advance, the monthly fee will be adjusted for an 11-month registration year. In 2024 it will go back to the 12-month registration fee when pre-paying for the 2025 practice permit year.

I am in agreement with the changes to the registration date specifically if it’s more convenient for registrants knowing how hectic the holiday season can be.
