Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs) have been in practice in the province of Alberta for over 70 years.
LPNs are professional nurses who work within the parameters established by regulation and employer and individual scopes of practice.
Their practice complies with standards of practice, the Code of Ethics, and other practice guidance set forth by the College of Licensed Practical Nurses of Alberta (CLPNA). LPNs are involved in the assessment, planning, implementation, and evaluation of nursing care.
