As a self-regulating profession, Manitoba’s 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, relevant to their area of practice, and 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. The audit also assists LPNs by helping them meet their professional obligation to maintain and build their competence in their specific area of practice.
The Audit and Your Registration
If you are an LPN, confirming your participation in the CCP is part of your annual registration renewal process. If you have been selected for the CCP Audit this year, here are some dates you need to be aware of.
Registration renewal deadline. Your CCP materials are due. Late submissions will be accepted up to November 30, but will result in late registration fees.
Registration expires. All CCP materials must be submitted. If not, your registration may not be processed and you will not be authorized to practice after this date.
Once your CCP materials have been submitted and all other registration requirements are met, you will be granted a provisional registration. There will be a notation attached to the license advising that it is subject to cancellation if you do not meet the requirements of the CCP and the CCP Audit. Having a provisional license does not limit your ability to practice during the course of the audit. Once you have successfully completed the audit, your provisional license will be converted to an approved license. If you do not comply with the requirements of the CCP or the audit, your provisional license may be revoked.
