About the CCP Audit

As a self-regulating profession, LPNs hold one another accountable for maintaining and continually developing their professional competence. This is carried out, in part, through the CCP Audit.

Each year, 10% of Manitoba’s LPNs are randomly selected for a detailed review of their CCP activities to confirm that their learning plans and professional development activities are contributing to their competence, are relevant to their area of practice, and are consistent with all other requirements of the program.

The CCP Audit supports the CLPNM in meeting its mandate to ensure that LPNs provide safe, competent and ethical nursing care. It also assists LPNs in meeting their professional obligation to maintain and build their competence as nurses. When an LPN is selected for the CCP Audit, participating in the audit and meeting all associated deadlines is a requirement for ongoing registration with the CLPNM.

If you are an LPN in Manitoba, your obligation to participate in the CCP and the CCP Audit is described in the CLPNM’s Practice Direction on the Continuing Competence Program. If you have been selected for the audit this year, detailed information about what is expected of you prior to and during the audit is included in the CLPNM’s CCP Instruction Guide.

Important Dates for Audit Participants

November 1, 2018

Your CCP materials are due. Late submissions will be accepted up to November 30. However, because your CCP materials are part of your renewal application package, submitting them after the 1st will result in late registration fees.

November 30, 2018

If all required CCP materials have not been submitted, your renewal will not have been processed. You will not be authorized to practise after this date.

The CCP Audit and Your Renewal

If you are being audited, submitting you CCP documents is part of your registration renewal application package.  Your 2019 renewal will not be processed until all the required documents are received. Be sure to submit them between September 1 and November 1, 2018 to avoid late fees and penalties. If your CCP documents are not submitted and complete by the renewal deadline, your renewal will not be approved. Find out more about your registration renewal. 

Check Your Email

During the audit, time-sensitive correspondence will be sent to your email address on record with the CLPNM. It is your responsibility to keep your email address up-to-date and to check your email regularly, including your junk mail folder, for CLPNM communication.

Provisional Registration

Once the CLPNM receives your CCP documents, and all other registration requirements are met, you will be granted a provisional registration for 2019. This does not impact your ability to practise, provided that you participate in the audit as required and meet all the related deadlines. When you successfully complete the audit, your provisional registration will be converted to an approved registration. If you do not meet the requirements of the CCP or of the audit, your provisional licence may be revoked.

What to Submit

Be sure to review the CCP Instruction Guide for detailed instructions on what documents to submit for the audit, and how to submit them.

The learning plan template is available below. If you need more space than the template provides, create a separate document. Just be sure it includes all of the same content.

Important notice: in light of the potential for strike action by Canada Post workers, the CLPNM advises all registrants  to avoid sending time sensitive documents, such as CCP Audit materials, via Canada Post until the risk is resolved. See other options for submitting your documents here.
