Awards of Excellence

Nominations open until Feb 15, 2017

In every profession, there are those who stand out, who shine brighter. They work hard to lead better, learn more to teach clearer, care more to serve broader.

Every year, the Awards of Excellence honours the stars among Alberta’s Licensed Practical Nurses and those healthcare leaders who support the practical nurse profession.

Each award recipient receives a commemorative crystal award at the Awards Dinner during the CLPNA AGM & Conference, and are featured in CARE magazine. Award recipients who are a Licensed Practical Nurse also receive $1000.
