Manitoba’s Practical Nursing Profession Has New Standards!

The new Standards of Practice and Conduct take effect on December 1, 2021.

The Standards, which were last revised in 2004, were updated with input from members of the profession, employers, educators, and many others.

The CLPNM is grateful to the 760 Manitoba LPNs who took the time to respond to our survey on the draft document earlier this year.

The feedback helped us to refine the document, and reinforced that the new Standards will:

  • establish reasonable expectations for conduct and practice,
  • contribute to safe, ethical and competent care, and
  • help to maintain public confidence and trust in your profession.

Review the Standards of Practice and Conduct, 2021, here.

The CLPNM’s Jurisprudence Education Module has been updated to include information on the new Standards of Practice and Conduct. Reviewing this module is optional for most LPNs, but is one of the ways you can learn more about your new professional standards.   The module is a requirement for all those entering the profession, and any registrants who are specifically directed to complete the education by the CLPNM.
