The Jurisprudence Examination will test your understanding of an Alberta LPN’s professional role and responsibilities.
This multiple-choice, open-book exam is developed and administered by the CLPNA. Successful completion of the Jurisprudence Examination is a registration requirement for select applicants.
Current Alberta LPNs are NOT required to complete the Jurisprudence Examination, but CLPNA encourages registrants to take the exam as part of their own Continuing Competence Program learning. The exam may be taken by registrants with an Active or Provisional registration practice permit.
As part of the registration process, applicants who are assessed to write the Jurisprudence Exam will be provided with details about how to pay for and write the exam.
CLPNA members with a current Active or Provisional registration practice permit may pay for and write the Jurisprudence Examination at any time. Follow the below instructions:
The Jurisprudence Examination is an open-book, multiple-choice exam. Fee: $50 for each exam attempt, payable by VISA or MasterCard. Payment will be made online immediately before beginning the exam. Exam fees are non-refundable.
Maximum exam time is four hours. Short breaks may be taken during the exam, but the countdown clock will continue to run. Exam writers are advised to ensure they do not log out of the exam while in progress, as this will end the exam and count as an exam attempt.
Exam results will take up to 2 business days to be available after completing the exam and may also be printed at any time by logging into MyCLPNA. The exam results will also be automatically sent to the CLPNA at the completion of the exam. Those who fail may retake the exam. There is a $50 exam fee for each attempt. Once the exam is completed successfully, no further exam attempts are possible.
