Nursing Practice Self-Assessment Tool

Document Type: Tools


The practice of practical nursing can occur in a variety of roles and settings. It is important to note that the practice of practical nursing is not the same as being employed as a practical nurse because a job title may not reflect the roles and responsibilities of a practical nurse.

The Nursing Practice Self-Assessment Tool helps users determine whether their role provides “nursing services” in Alberta according to the Health Professions Act and the CLPNA’s policies, and therefore that time could be used as practice hours on the CLPNA’s Registration Renewal form or for the Continuing Competence Program.
