LPNs Now Eligible to Register for CNPS Services
Licensed practical nurses (LPNs) across Canada are now eligible to register to become beneficiaries of the Canadian Nurses Protective Society (CNPS). The services available to beneficiaries are described on the CNPS website.
Note that CNPS registration is optional for Manitoba LPNs. Purchasing this added protection is a decision that LPNs may make for themselves.
All LPNs are required to hold liability insurance; however, the minimum level of insurance that is prescribed by the CLPNM Board of Directors is already available to LPNs through the insurance policy that the CLPNM purchases on behalf of its registrants. This insurance policy provides coverage for errors and omissions in practice. The cost to LPNs for this insurance is included in their annual CLPNM registration fees. More information on this policy is available on here.
