Professional development is an important part of maintaining nursing competence. Alberta’s Licensed Practical Nurses are responsible for assessing their individual knowledge and competence in areas of nursing practice to identify whether a knowledge gap exists or if specific education is needed for authorization to practice.
The CLPNA provides ongoing education in a variety of formats to promote the continuing competence of LPNs.
A webinar is a live seminar attended using an internet-connected computer or mobile device, allowing participants in different locations to see and hear the live presenter and ask questions. Registration is required. Upcoming webinars can be viewed in the News section of the website.
Learning modules have been developed by the CLPNA and external subject matter experts to help LPNs meet their learning goals.
Alberta’s LPNs can access learning modules by logging into their account on MyCLPNA.
