Re-entering the LPN Profession

If you are a former Manitoba Licensed Practical Nurse and wish to return to practical nursing in Manitoba,  you must first apply to have your eligibility for reinstatement assessed.

A reinstatement assessment is used by the College of Licensed Practical Nurses of Manitoba (CLPNM) to determine whether the length of time you have been away from your practice could impact your readiness to provide safe and competent nursing care.

The CLPNM has developed a Reinstatement Fact Sheet to provide you with detailed information on the reinstatement process.  Please be sure to review the fact sheet before starting the reinstatement process.

When you are ready to open a reinstatement file with the CLPNM, the first step is to submit the Reinstatement Pre-Assessment Form.  Once the CLPNM receives the completed form, a reinstatement package will be forwarded to you by email. The CLPNM will use email as its primary method of communication with you throughout the reinstatement process.

For further information on the reinstatement process, or if you have any questions not answered in the Reinstatement Fact Sheet, please contact the CLPNM by email at or by phone at 204-663-1212 or 1-877-663-1212 toll free.
