The legislative mandate of the College of Licensed Practical Nurses of Alberta (CLPNA), as enacted under the Alberta Health Professions Act (HPA), is to protect the public. To fulfill its duty, CLPNA requires its members to deliver safe, competent and ethical nursing care. These requirements are set out in the Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics for the profession and in relevant legislation.

The CLPNA is committed to assuring the public that Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs) meet these requirements, and in doing so, has the responsibility of managing and resolving complaints made against the regulated members or former members (if within 2 years since registration lapsed) of the CLPNA.
