Non-Practising certificates are available to members whom are still eligible to practice as an LPN, but are currently on a leave or planning a leave from practice. Examples of common leave types are:
- Maternity / Paternity Leave
- Worker’s Compensation
Benefits of changing to a non-practising certificate include:
- NO Continuing Education Portfolio (CEP) hour requirement for the duration of time you are registered as non-practising
- Registration remains in good standing
See the SALPN Fee Schedule for the current non-practising certificate fee.
To access the online form, please log into your member portal.
If an LPN on leave does not initiate a change in status from Practising to Non-Practising, the annual renewal requirements, such as 24 CEP hours, remain mandatory. For members who change their status to Non-Practising, CEP hours are calculated at the pro-rated rate for next Practising renewal
