CEP Questions

LPNs are expected to accumulate CEP hours to improve and/or maintain their knowledge, skills, and practice competencies through continuing education.

It is the responsibility of the individual LPN to seek out opportunities for this continuing education requirement to support individual practice.

The SALPN has a few resources listed on our website that can get you started on your CEP hours. This list only contains a small number of options. You are expected to find other resources if these lists do not work for you.

We encourage you to search out other learning opportunities beyond what is listed on the SALPN website.

 

You may “carry-over” a maximum of 8 hours into the next licensure year.  All “carry-over” hours must be applied to the section in which they were originally obtained the next licensure year. Your renewal will show you which section.

Remember, the carry-over CEP you choose will require you to have supporting documentation if audited. 

Example:

You collect:

  • 32 hours in 2019 (8 more than required) = 8 carry-over hours for 2020.

Yes, you can obtain hours while holding a non-practicing certificate.  If you return to practicing in the same year, you will be eligible to use those hours towards your minimum requirement. 

For example, if you were Non-Practicing at the start of the year, attended the SALPN Annual General Meeting in April, and returned to practicing in October, you could use the hours from the AGM towards your minimum requirement.
