Are you up for the challenge?

The Registration, Standards of Education, and Inquiry Committees are looking for LPN members.

5 reasons why you should join a CLPNBC committee:

  • Contribute to LPN self-regulation
  • Gain committee experience
  • Develop personally and professionally
  • Learn more about LPN practice and the role of your college
  • Network with fellow LPNs and members of the public

Did you know? Committee members are reimbursed for out of pocket expenses and receive an honorarium for their time.

Looking for an easier way to budget? Pre-authorized payments may be the solution!

The pre-authorized payment (PAP) option is available to all LPNs holding practising registration who want to pre-pay for next year’s registration renewal fee in smaller monthly amounts.

PAP facts:

  • Monthly payments are collected a full year in advance of the next renewal year.

  • You will still need to log in to your CLPNBC account and apply for registration each year.

  • You may have a balance to pay if you have any outstanding fees, such as a new criminal record check.

  • PAP deductions will continue until you submit a cancellation form.

The inaugural Forum of Canadian Nurse Regulators was held July 6 in historic Montreal, Quebec. Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs), Registered Nurses (RNs), and Registered Psychiatric Nurses (RPNs) regulators met for the first ever gathering of nurse regulators in Canada to learn more about the Canadian Council for Practical Nurse Regulators (CCPNR), Canadian Council for Registered Nurse Regulators (CCRNR) and the Registered Psychiatric Nurse Regulators of Canada (RPNRC) and to exchange knowledge and information.

Common priorities and issues were explored as potential opportunities for nurse regulators to work together in the public’s interest.
