Recently CARNA sent an email to all of its Members regarding a recent proposal from the College of Licensed Practical Nurses to Alberta Health to expand the scope of practice of LPNs.
CARNA is requesting feedback from Members via a short survey.
I have copied the information from the CARNA website as well as the link to complete the survey for your convenience.
I urge all of our Members who are Members of CARNA to complete this survey.

From the CARNA website:
The College of Licensed Practical Nurses of Alberta (CLPNA) is proposing amendments to its professional regulation, requesting authorization for restricted activities to expand the scope of practice for licensed practical nurses (LPNs). Alberta Health has requested feedback on the proposed amendments from stakeholders, including CARNA and we, in turn, have invited all members to inform our response via a short online survey.
Responses must be submitted by July 29, 2016 to be considered in CARNA’s response to Alberta Health.
We hope you will take some time to review the proposed changes and complete the short survey we sent by email on July 12, 2016. If you did not received an email requesting your feedback please contact rcooper
