The SALPN has offered to share the following information as a courtesy to LPNs in Saskatchewan, providing another resource for your nursing leadership and practice.
From Claire Betker, CNA President:
For the past year, the Canadian Nurses Association (CNA) has been on an intense journey of self-reflection to help ground our thinking about ways to strengthen professional nursing representation for all regulated nurses.
Nurses enjoy the highest public trust of any profession in Canada. Maintaining that highly privileged position demands that we understand and put in place the professional supports and services nurses need to thrive in their practice settings and careers.
Throughout the fall of 2019 and early 2020, CNA board representatives want to engage with nurses in all regulated categories, as well as with people working in health systems who are not nurses. We want to hear ideas, advice and opinions about the future of CNA, its membership, brand, programs and services. We want to enter into conversations and to really hear the diversity of views of nurses and others in all areas of Canada. We want to hear from you about how to best meet the needs and expectations of our current CNA members and potential members, and we want to know what kind of professional association would appeal to nurses who are not yet members.
During our in-person sessions, we will invite participants to share their reactions and responses to a short, focused group of questions about what they think CNA needs to do to build a vibrant, exciting and inclusive national professional association that welcomes all nurses. If you are a nurse, you’ll be asked what CNA could do to support your practice. If you are not a nurse, we’ll want to know about your expectations of CNA as a partner in policy and advocacy work. Members of CNA’s board of directors, including the president and president-elect, as well as members of our executive and membership teams, will sit in on different sessions across the country so that we hear your ideas first-hand.
We are pleased to invite you to participate in an in-person session in Regina at the SALPN office on February 13, 2020, from 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm. We will also like to extend the invitation to attend online, where you will be able to engage with the speakers and other attendees.
We hope you will join us and take part in the conversation! We look forward to seeing you in person and/or engaging with you online!
Please register BELOW for either the in-person session or the online meeting.
