If you are a practical nurse in Manitoba, keeping your personal contact information up-to-date with the College of Licensed Practical Nurses of Manitoba (CLPNM) will ensure you receive important information about your profession, your practice and your licence.
The CLPNM’s primary means of communicating with its registrants is by email. Important information may also be sent to you by mail or communicated over the phone. For this reason, it is important for you to keep all of your contact information up-to-date in your CLPNM registration profile, at all times.
The CLPNM may contact you with important information at any time throughout the year, so be sure to update your personal contact information as soon as it changes, not just during the registration renewal window. Under CLPNM By-Law, registrants have an obligation to notify the CLPNM when their personal contact information changes. To update your contact information, or to check its accuracy, login to your online CLPNM registration profile. (Note that your UserID is your email address currently on record with the CLPNM.)
It is equally important for you to check your junk email folder on a regular basis to ensure that email communication from the CLPNM has not been missed, and to refrain from actively blocking or unsubscribing from the CLPNM’s email communications. You will not be able to stay informed of requirements and deadlines that affect your practice and your licence if you do not take steps to ensure you are receiving the CLPNM’s emails.
If you believe you may have missed receiving an email, letter or other notice from the CLPNM that was expected, for whatever reason, it is your responsibility to follow-up with the CLPNM.
