Annual Licensure Audit

Feb. 1 - Feb. 28

Why does CLPNS conduct audits?

The CLPNS has the legislated mandate of public protection through the regulation of licensed practical
nurses. One area of this regulation is setting the standards and requirements for licensure and renewal. Some of the requirements included in the CLPNS Regulatory Bylaws require that the LPN declare any criminal conviction(s), report the number of hours of practice per year, obtain Continuing Education Portfolio program hours, and provide information related to the Independent Practice registry.

The annual licensure audit is a tool to verify that LPNs met the renewal requirements at the time of renewal and were truthful in their declarations. The CLPNS randomly audits members across the four areas mentioned above. In addition to the random selection, the CLPNS also audits LPNs who may have had previous reporting errors, those who have an audit as part of a disciplinary order, or if new regulatory requirements need verification.

Failure to comply with audit requests may lead to disciplinary action.
