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.
- 32 hours in 2020 (8 more than required) = 8 carry-over hours for 2021.
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.
Renewal fees are due on or before December 1st
Practicing licensure: $450
GLPN licensure: $450
Non-Practicing Certification: $60
Late fees are in effect beginning December 2nd at the following rates:
Renewal between December 2 – 15 = $100
Renewal between December 16 – 31 = $200
*Late fees are in addition to the renewal fees.
To be eligible for renewal, a member must have worked a minimum of 1250 LPN hours in the last 5-year period. In some cases, the SALPN Registrar may extend the 5-year requirement to members who apply in writing and meet the criteria outlined in the Practice Hours Extension Policy.
Not sure if you should apply? For a list of the LPN hours you worked in the last few years, log in to your SALPN Member Portal and click on Update Profile. If the hours listed and the ones for the current year do not meet the 1250 requirement, you may want to consider applying for an extension.
The cost of the extension application is $100 and is accessible here.
