Only 23% of LPNs are ready to work on January 1, 2018!


Time is running out!

  • There are only 19 working days left for CLPNBC staff to assess, process and provide assistance for your renewal application.
  • Access to the renewal application ends on December 31 at 4:30 p.m. PST.
  • All applications in progress, incomplete or unpaid, are automatically cancelled at 4:30 p.m. on December 31.

When in doubt, check the Public Registry. If your renewal was approved, you will see your “future status”.


Are your LPN staff authorized to practise in 2018? So far, over 9800 LPNs haven’t renewed yet.

Want to be sure your staff are registered? Check the Public Registry. You can search for one person at a time, or a group. The results of your search will let you know which LPNs are ready to work in 2018 as they will have “future status”.
