notice of fee changes

LPNs are self-regulating health professionals. To maintain the privilege to practise as an LPN, you pay a fee each year to renew your registration. These fees allow CLPNBC to effectively and efficiently regulate licensed practical nurses in the public interest and to carry out the requirements of a regulatory college as set out in the Health Professions Act.

—Why are the fees changing?—

nurses as guarantors (update) did you know?

In November 2013, the BC government identified nurses as one of the possible guarantors one could have to change their sex designation on all their BC services cards. Effective immediately, nurses will no longer be a part of this process.

Vivian is an LPN working for a private agency. She provides care for Ben, a six-year-old boy who requires a tracheostomy. Sue, the RN case manager, supports Vivian in her role. Can Sue provide tracheostomy care to Ben?
