Before you can enroll on the active practising register and work as an LPN in Manitoba, you must complete an education session on the jurisprudence for LPNs in Manitoba. Completing an education session on jurisprudence may also be assigned as an undertaking following an investigation into the conduct of a member.

The jurisprudence education session will provide you with:

  • knowledge  of the legislation, regulations, and professional standards that guide the profession of practical nursing in Manitoba, and
  • an understanding of how to interpret and apply your professional requirements.

The CLPNM recommends reviewing the Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics before attending or viewing the jurisprudence education session.

A recorded version of the jurisprudence education session is available below.  Applicants and registrants who have been directed by the CLPNM to watch the recorded presentation will also be required to complete a test. A link to the test will be emailed to those who require it.

An applicant or registrant who has been directed by the CLPNM to attend an individualized jurisprudence education session may be required to attend the CLPNM office in Winnipeg to participate in the session in person. Those for whom this requirements applies will be advised by the CLPNM.
