Tips to Get Started

  1. Have your PN program completion date and location of graduation information ready. 
  2.  If you've completed any other post-secondary education (non-nursing), have the program's date, name, and location information available. 
  3. On your device, save copies of two pieces of government-issued identification to upload. 
  4. Recent criminal record check (dated within the last 6 months) from either the RCMP or a local police department.
  5. Pay the required $200 application payment (VISA, VISA Debit, MasterCard or e-Transfer) 
  6. Request a Verification of Registration (VOR) form from the licensing body(s) you are currently licensed with. 

Once the other body(s) complete the form, they will send it directly to the CLPNS. 

English Language

Applicants currently licensed in another Canadian jurisdiction and applying to the CLPNS are considered to have met English language proficiency requirements for their initial Canadian LPN licensure.  If the other Canadian jurisdiction assessed a language other than English for your registration and licensure, the CLPNS may require an alternate method of language proficiency assessment.

Out-of-province applicants who already met another jurisdiction’s licensure requirements for English language proficiency may not need to provide additional proof of proficiency to the CLPNS.

The CLPNS will email you if there are any questions or concerns about your application. 

If the CLPNS approves your application, you will receive an email inviting you to log into your Member Portal to complete the $450 licensure payment.  Once the payment is processed, the CLPNS will issue your licensure.
