Online Learning Modules

The College is pleased to offer two online learning modules to LPNs in Nova Scotia. The College creates these learning opportunities to support LPNs by providing them with current and relevant information about their practice.  LPNs in completing these modules, are better informed and as such, better prepared to make appropriate care decisions as they provide safe, competent, ethical and compassionate nursing services to clients.

Completion of these online learning modules is voluntary. Some have associated costs and others are free of charge. An active email address is required for all online learning modules.  A Certificate of completion is provided either by CLPNNS or the online learning platform (depending upon which module you complete).

Important Update About Online Learning Modules

As part of our mandate, CLPNNS invests in education resources that help nurses deliver safe care. At the same time, we are always evaluating our process to optimize education opportunities. As a result, the CLPNNS online learning modules will be moving to a new platform in mid-August. The modules will be closed for enrolment for several days during this transition. The final dates are to be determined.

In preparation for the move, there will be no new enrolment in the Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics online learning module or the online Leadership Course after August 7, 2017.  If you are currently enrolled in either of these modules, you must complete the module by August 7, 2017. If you do not complete your module by this date, the work you have done will be lost during the transition and you will be required to start over (and pay any associated fees) when the new platform is live. CLPNNS will update members when the transition is complete.

If you have any questions about this change please contact Jylene Simmons by phone at 1-800-718-8517 (option 4) or by email at

Replacement Certificates

Please note that CLPNNS cannot issue replacement certificates for the Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics learning module and there is a $10.00 fee for a replacement certificate for the online Leadership Course.
