Outstanding, superior, an example of the best. These attributes describe the best in Alberta’s Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) profession and supportive non-LPN health professionals.

The stories behind the Award Winners are shared in a glamorous, live presentation at the 2019 CLPNA AGM & Conference, and to 18,000 CARE magazine subscribers across Alberta and Canada.
3. They need to know how much they are appreciated.
