Over 100 people have practised without registration this year!

Working or volunteering as an LPN without practising registration is a serious offence.
What you need to know:

  • Check the Public Registry for up-to-date information about your registration status.
  • Practising registration is valid for the calendar year, not for one year from when you renewed or reinstated.
  • When you are not registered, you do not have liability insurance. This means you are putting yourself, your patients and your employer at risk.
  • Maintaining your registration is one of the Professional Standards.
