New Practice Direction: Assignment and Delegation

The College of Licensed Practical Nurses of Manitoba has published a new practice direction that describes the responsibilities of Manitoba’s practical nurses when assigning and delegating client care tasks to unregulated care providers. This practice direction was created in collaboration with the College of Registered Nurses of Manitoba and the College of Registered Psychiatric Nurses of Manitoba.

All CLPNM registrants are expected to review and ensure they understand the professional expectations set out in the document.

The practice direction can be accessed here.

Questions may be directed to the CLPNM Practice Department by email at or by phone at 204-663-1212 or 1-877-663-1212 toll free.
