Registration for Virtual Practice
Virtual Practice Eligibility
- Are you a practical nurse, registered in good standing in another Canadian jurisdiction, who provides nursing services by virtual means (e.g. online, by telephone)?
- Are some of your clients in Manitoba? Or might they be?
- Do you provide nursing services, by virtual means, through a program or organization that is affiliated with the publicly funded health care system in Manitoba?
If the answer to each of these questions is “yes” you may be eligible for a low-cost and expedited registration from the CLPNM for the purposes of your virtual practice.
Note that the CLPNM takes the position that you require a CLPNM registration to provide practical nursing care to clients who are located in Manitoba, even by virtual means. This is the case even if you hold registration as a practical nurse in another Canadian jurisdiction. Individuals located within the geographical boundaries of the Province of Manitoba are entitled to expect the Manitoba standard of care from a practical nurse, regardless of where the nurse is located.
Please contact the CLPNM Registration Department for more information on obtaining registration for virtual practice.
