Vision Mission & Values


Lead, innovate, and promote professional excellence of the Licensed Practical Nurse in Manitoba and collaborate with our stakeholders in a changing health care environment to serve and protect the public.


We are dedicated to protecting and serving Manitobans through effective, transparent, objective, and supportive nursing regulation.

This end is further interpreted to include:

  • The College speaks with a unified voice in all regulatory matters for the licensed practical nurses of Manitoba.
  • The College establishes the regulatory framework for the licensed practical nurses in Manitoba (Scope of Practice, Standards of Practice, Code of Ethics).
  • The College endorses professional development and life-long learning and ensures compliance with the continuing competency program.
  • The College establishes mechanisms for hearing and investigating complaints against licensed practical nurses and sets out the disciplinary processes as defined in legislation.
  • The College establishes robust mechanisms for registration as per legislation, including registration exams, initial enrollment and renewal of student practical nurses, graduate practical nurses and licensed practical nurses.
  • The College is informed of evidence based nursing practice and disseminates this information to all Licensed Practical Nurses.
  • The College enforces the standards of education, monitors practical nursing programs, and approves new programs.


  • Respect:  “Creating a culture of equity, inclusiveness, and diversity, within our organisation, with membership, and with our external stakeholders.”
  • Integrity:  “Being honest, fair, consistent, and objective in our deliberations, transactions, and relationships.”
  • Collaboration:  “Engaging licensed practical nurses and other stakeholders in a cooperative spirit to build strong professional and public relationships.”
