According to the SALPN regulatory bylaw 10(1)(a), “In order to be eligible to obtain a renewal of a licence to practice, a member who is a licensed practical nurse must; have worked in LPN activities approved by the council for at least 1250 registered working hours during the previous five years, or such longer period that the registrar may approve in writing.”
For a variety of reasons, there are times when LPNs do not meet the SALPN’s minimum hour requirement. When this occurs, LPNs may apply to the SALPN Registrar for additional time to accrue the minimally accepted practice hours. Applications are assessed on a case-by-case basis.
