Research Projects

The College of Licensed Practical Nurses of Alberta (CLPNA) encourages research projects that facilitate and support the organization’s mandate, vision and mission.

All research activities use a return-on-investment evaluation framework where ‘inputs’ (resources) lead to ‘outputs’ (activities) that produce ‘outcomes’ (findings) that have ‘impact’(promote change).

Creating Knowledge through Research Collaborations

The CLPNA facilitates collaborations with diverse partners from many areas of academic research.

Following is an overview of successful collaborative projects linked to an overview and the associated activities used to inform our stakeholders and implement actions based on our results.

Building Capacity for Licensed Practical Nurse Related Research

The CLPNA works with internal and external stakeholders to develop mechanisms that will advance the LPN professional community’s understanding, use, and translation of research evidence. In doing so, we hope to build capacity for research with a practical nursing focus. The CLPNA offers funding opportunities as well as in-kind support for academic researchers who would like to conduct studies.
