In 2014, the College of Licensed Practical Nurses of BC (CLPNBC) introduced a requirement for registrants to have a minimum number of practice hours within five years.
Registration renewal opens on November 1 and closes on December 31. If you have not practiced as an LPN for 1,125 hours within the last five years, you will not be eligible to renew your registration for 2019. An LPN may have to meet some requirements in order to qualify for a practicing registration such as:
Undergoing a competency assessment
Completing a CLPNBC-approved practical nursing education program
Passing any exam required by the CLPNBC Registration Committee
Pre-approved supervised practice experience
Find more information about practice hours on the CLPNBC website.
