What's new for LPN renewal

Oct 2, 2019

​Registration renewal for licensed practical nurses (LPNs) starts November 1, 2019. Here’s what’s new: 

14-month registration: This year, LPNs will renew for an additional 2 months (14 months total) in order to align the renewal periods of all nursing designations and address feedback we’ve received from LPNs about moving the LPN renewal period out of the busy holiday season. Learn more

Registration fees: Registration fees are increasing for 2020-21. LPNs will also pay more due to the 14-month registration period. Learn more.
New Quality Assurance requirements: BCCNP has introduced new Quality Assurance requirements for LPNs. The biggest change? All practising and provisional LPN registrants will complete a self-assessment when completing their renewal application. Learn more.

Pro-rated fees and refunds: Starting on January 1, 2020, LPNs will be eligible for a refund on their registration fees if they cancel their registration.  Leaving or returning to practice in 2020? Learn about your options.
Provisional LPNs renew: This year, provisional LPNs will renew their registration to reflect BCCNP bylaws.  
Optional: Staying connected with the association: In 2020, Nurses and Nurse Practitioners of BC (NNPBC), the provincial nursing association and your link to the Canadian Nursing Association (CNA), is moving to a voluntary membership model. To support them during this short-term transition period, BCCNP is providing LPNs with the ability to opt in to receive communication from NNPBC on their renewal application. Learn more.
