LPN Reclassification

January 20, 2021

The LPN reclassification has been completed and the results were shared with Michelle Stevenson LPN and Matt Speight LPN who have worked tirelessly on behalf of all LPNs in Health PEI on the reclass.

LPNs will be moving from Level 10 to Level 13 which is wonderful news for our nurses who have been waiting for the outcome of this reclassification. We will update information as we receive it. Many thanks to Michelle and Matt for all your time and dedication and to all those LPNs who participated initially, ensuring all the duties our LPNs perform in all the various worksites were identified.
