Tips for getting started

  1.  Update your CLPNS Member Profile
  2.  If you’ve completed any other post-secondary education since last licensed with the CLPNS, have the date, name of the program and location information available.
  3.  Save copies of two pieces of government-issued identification on your device to upload.
  4.  Obtain a recent criminal record and vulnerable sector query (dated within the last 6-months). This must be obtained from either the RCMP or local police department, third-party checks are not accepted.
  5.  Have the number of LPN hours you have worked for the last 5-year period ready to enter.
  6.  Pay the required $200.00 application payment (VISA, VISA Debit, MasterCard, or e-Transfer).
  7. 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.

*Once your application is approved, you must pay the $450 licensure fee before you can begin practising as an LPN.*

What's Next?

Once you submit the application, the CLPNS will review it. If satisfied, the CLPNS will approve your application. You will receive an email requesting that you complete the licensure payment.

You will not be licensed and cannot work as an LPN until the payment is made.
