PROTECTING THE PUBLIC
The College of Licensed Practical Nurses of Alberta (CLPNA) regulates the licensed practical nurse profession in a manner that protects and serves the public. Our first responsibility is to Alberta’s healthcare users. We regulate the profession by setting and maintaining standards for registration, practice, and conduct for Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs). Our focus and commitment is to protect and serve the public.
- Make a complaint – we are responsible for protecting the public from unethical, unskilled, and unsafe LPN practices. File a complaint if you have a concern about an LPN practicing in Alberta. You can also learn more about our formal complaints process against LPNs here.
- Check a nurse’s status – we keep a real-time registry of LPNs to help the public identify if a person providing nursing care in Alberta is registered with us. Any public member can check a nurse’s status through our online registry.
