The Continuing Competence Program (CCP) is a program that helps RNs and NPs continuously improve their knowledge and practice. It is completed annually by every RN/NP and is a requirement to be eligible for a practice permit.
CARNA's CCP allows Alberta’s registered nurses and nurse practitioners to plan and then carry out their own annual professional development.
The CCP integrates the following:
Nursing knowledge is continuously advancing and it’s important to the safety of Albertans that registered nurses stay current and grow their knowledge and skills accordingly.
Participation in the CCP is directly linked to practice hours. If you have any practice hours at all in Alberta for any given practice year – no matter how few – you need to meet the CCP requirements for that practice year.
All CCP information is entered in MyCCP online. To access MyCCP you log in to MyCARNA.
