About the YLPNA

History of the Yukon Licensed Practical Nursing Association

The Yukon Licensed Practical Nursing Association (YLPNA) was founded in 2009 with a small group of Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs) interested in raising the profile of Practical Nurses across the territory. Since its inception the YLPNA has established and maintained the ability for all LPNs to obtain malpractice insurance and have been actively advocating for LPNs in the Yukon to be self-regulated similarly to their counterparts in all the southern provinces of Canada. The YLPNA continues to work towards this goal of self-regulation while supporting LPNs through advocacy, education and increased community awareness.
