LPN Registration Expires November 30th
If you are an LPN, your licence and authorization to practise expires each year on November 30th at midnight. If you wish to continue to practise in Manitoba after that date, you must renew your registration. For the lowest renewal fee, your renewal application must be complete and approved before November 1st at midnight. For the best access to support, and for the opportunity to submit any required information missing from your application before late fees apply, you are strongly encouraged to complete your renewal application as early as possible after the renewal window opens on September 1, 2017.
What to Submit
A complete renewal application package includes all of the following:
- An accurate and complete renewal form, submitted using the CLPNM’s online registration system
- Submission of all documents required for the CCP Audit, if you were selected to participate in the CCP Audit
- Employer verification of your Manitoba practice hours, if requested by the CLPNM
- Submission of suitability checks (criminal record and abuse registry checks), if requested by the CLPNM
- Full payment of all applicable fees and outstanding amounts owed to the CLPNM
- Submission of any additional information the Executive Director may require from you to confirm your suitability and eligibility to practise
Registrants required to provide additional information will be advised directly by the CLPNM. The CLPNM will communicate with registrants via email. Be sure to check your inbox and junk folder regularly for time-sensitive correspondence.
Once your complete application is received, it will be assessed against the criteria for registration before your renewal is approved. Your renewal application must be complete and approved by midnight on November 1st to avoid late filing fees.
After the November 1st Deadline
If you complete your renewal application between November 2nd and November 30th at midnight, you will pay a late filing fee in addition to the renewal fee. If you do not complete your renewal application by November 30th at midnight, you will no longer be authorized to practise. Between December 1st and 15th, your registration will be in default and you will be required to pay a late filing fee and a default reactivation fee, in addition to the renewal fee, before being authorized to practise. The CLPNM Fee Schedule is available here.
If you have not submitted a complete renewal application by the close of business on December 15th, your registration will be automatically cancelled. You will be required to reinstate your registration if you wish to practise. For further information on the reinstatement process, please see the Reinstatement Fact Sheet.
Note that your current year’s registration authorizes you to practise up to and including November 30th. If your CLPNM licence is cancelled, at any time, you are not authorized to practise as an LPN in the province of Manitoba. Unauthorized practice is subject to penalty fees and disciplinary action as per The Licensed Practical Nurses Act. Additionally, the matter may be referred to the CLPNM Investigation Committee for review.
Resigning Your Registration
If you do not intend to practise in Manitoba in 2018, please take the time to advise the CLPNM that you are resigning. This allows us to keep better statistics about the profession and assists in health human resource planning. You can advise us by logging into your online renewal profile, and by making the change in the “confirmation” tab.
