About the CCP Audit
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 in meeting their professional obligation to maintain and build their competence in their specific area of practice.
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.
CCP Audit Resources for LPNs
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. (Note: practice directions were formerly referred to as regulatory bulletins.)
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
The forms and templates you may need for the audit are available below.
Note that this webpage does not provide comprehensive information on all the documents must be submitted for the audit. If you have been selected for the audit, be sure to review pages 5-7 of the CCP Instruction Guide for detailed instructions on what documents to submit and how to submit them.
You may print and complete the forms manually, or use the fillable PDF forms if you have a compatible version of Adobe. Be sure to save the completed forms to your own device, as the content you enter is not saved to or submitted through the CLPNM website.
If you need more space than the forms provide, you may create separate documents, but be sure they include all of the same content.
CCP Audit Selection Notices
If you are selected for the CCP Audit, you will be advised in your 2018 registration renewal notice (sent by email) and when you login to the CLPNM’s online registration system after September 1, 2017.
If you are being audited, submitting you CCP documents is part of your registration renewal application package. Your 2018 renewal will not be processed until all the required documentation has been received. Be sure to submit all required CCP documents between September 1 and November 1, 2017 to avoid late fees and penalties. If your CCP documents are not submitted by the renewal deadline, your renewal will not be approved.
Once the CLPNM receives your CCP documents and all other registration requirements are met, you will be granted a provisional registration for 2018. 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 the audit, your provisional licence may be revoked.
During the audit, time-sensitive correspondence will be sent to your email address on record. It is your responsibility to check your email regularly, including your junk mail folder, during registration renewal in the fall of 2017 and during the CCP Audit in the early months of 2018 for CLPNM communication.
Important Dates for Audit Participants
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.
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.
