The 2017 CLPNM AGM will take place on June 5

The College of Licensed Practical Nurses of Manitoba (CLPNM) is the professional regulatory body for practical nurses in Manitoba.

The duty of the CLPNM is to carry out its activities and govern its members in a manner that serves and protects the public interest. Any person who wishes to practice as a licensed practical nurse, graduate practical nurse, or student practical nurse in Manitoba must be registered with the CLPNM.


CLPNM establishes the standards for practical nursing education programs in Manitoba to ensure LPNs entering the profession have the knowledge and skills they need for their roles.


CLPNM grants licenses to Manitoba’s practical nurses. It evaluates each application for initial or renewed registration to ensure all practical nurses in Manitoba meet the criteria for the profession.


CLPNM establishes professional standards and guidelines to ensure that Manitobans can expect professional, compassionate, ethical, safe and high-quality care from Manitoba’s LPNs.

Public Protection

CLPNM oversees the practice and conduct of practical nurses in Manitoba. It receives and investigates complaints, and when necessary, takes action to protect the public interest.
