Question 2A

You answered “No” to the question, “have you worked as an LPN or successfully completed an LPN nursing education program in the past four (4) years?”

If you have not practiced as a nurse within the past four (4) years, you are not eligible for registration.

In addition, if you have been out of nursing practice between four (4) to ten (10) years, you may be required to complete a practical nurse refresher program.

If you have been out of practice for more than ten (10) years and would like to be part of the LPN profession, you are required to complete a LPN program at any of the schools approved by the CLPNA.

You may continue with the application process if you wish, but applying will likely result in the denial of your application. If you would like to submit an application, please email with an explanation of the process you have begun.

If you have been educated as a BScN in Canada you are required to contact the CLPNA at to discuss options for registration.
