Continuing Competence

Lifelong learning is essential to a nurse’s continuing competence.

CLPNM’s Continuing Competence Program (CCP) exists to ensure that Manitoba’s LPNs retain and continuously build upon their knowledge, judgment and skill. The program also ensures that LPNs remain up-to-date on evolving evidence and best-practice in their field. This contributes to high-quality, safe care for Manitobans.

Manitoba LPNs maintain and build their competence by:

  • maintaining a professional portfolio,
  • applying their knowledge, judgment and skill through active practice
    (at least 1000 hours in the previous four-years)
  • completing self-assessments
  • developing personal professional learning plans, and
  • meeting their learning goals.

All LPNs participate in these activities every year in order to maintain their registration with the CLPNM.

The CLPNM is required to establish a continuing competence program under section 15 of The Licensed Practical Nurses Act.

In order to monitor participation in continuing competence activities, the CLPNM conducts an annual review referred to as the CCP Audit.

CCP Information Sessions are Moving Online

Beginning September, 2018, the CCP information session will be available online only, in the form of a recorded presentation.

Applicants and registrants who have been directed by the CLPNM to watch the recorded presentation may also be required to complete a test to confirm that the presentation was viewed.
