The purpose of regulation is to ensure that regulated healthcare providers, such as Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs), practice in a safe, competent, and ethical manner.
The way LPNs connect their regulatory responsibilities to their nursing practice is of utmost importance. Professionalism requires that LPNs demonstrate professional standards when providing nursing care and collaborating with patients, colleagues, and other members of the healthcare team.
This micro-module assists LPNs in understanding how professional practice in Alberta fits into the CLPNA’s regulatory responsibilities framework. This includes legislation, regulation, the regulatory college, the employer, the LPN, and the public. All these components work together to protect the public.
