where's the public registry? call for resolutions

We've made it more accessible! The Public Registry has a new home. You can access the registry at the top of any CLPNBC page instead of just the front page.

CLPNBC's 2015 AGM will be held on Thursday, June 4, 2015. CLPNBC invites LPNs who wish to present a resolution at the AGM to submit the Resolution package by April 5, 2015.


You are an LPN supervisor working for a home care agency. You work with health care assistants (HCAs). Which answer best describes your responsibility when assigning client care to an HCA?

Please select an option:

  1. After determining the assigned activity is within the HCA’s job description, document the care the HCA provides..
  2. After reviewing the client’s plan of care, identify activities that could be assigned to the HCA and provide ongoing support.
  3. It is not within LPN Scope of Practice to assign care to HCAs, therefore the responsibility lies with the employer.
  4. Assign all responsibility for client care to the HCA and teach the client how to instruct and supervise the HCA.
