Continuing Competence Program (CCP)

Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs) are required to demonstrate a commitment to continuing competence by meeting the requirements established through the Licensed Practical Nurses Profession Regulation and relevant policies.

The Continuing Competence Program supports Licensed Practical Nurses to achieve and demonstrate competence through the completion of continuing competence activities which includes both learning and practice in the profession. By completing the annual requirements, the public can be assured LPNs are committed to ensuring competence through professional development.
