Reinstating Registration

If you did not complete your registration renewal before January 1, but you still want to practice in Alberta in 2024, you should complete a reinstatement application as soon as possible.

You cannot practice as an LPN in Alberta without a valid permit from the CLPNA. Working as an LPN without a valid practice permit is considered unprofessional conduct.

Suspended Permits

Anyone who had an active practice permit on December 31, 2023—but did not complete renewal—now has a suspended CLPNA permit.

If you do not complete reinstatement by January 31, 2024, your permit will be cancelled.
