Discipline Decisions

The Saskatchewan Association of Licensed Practical Nurses exists for the purpose of mitigating risk and reducing harm to the public through regulation of the LPN profession. As part of its mandate for public protection, The SALPN, as described by the Licensed Practical Nurses Act, 2000, must produce disciplinary decisions to the public. A disciplinary hearing will be conducted when any matter is referred to the Discipline Committee for their review.   The Discipline Committee consists of at least three members appointed by the SALPN council, a majority of whom need to be practising LPNs. Disciplinary hearings allow SALPN Membership the opportunity to address the complaint in a formalized tribunal setting.

Powers of the Disciplinary Committee

At the conclusion of the hearing, if the Discipline Committee finds that a Member is guilty of either professional misconduct or professional incompetence as defined in the Act, the Committee can decide on the following actions.

  • Expel the Member from the Association
  • Suspend a Member’s licence for a specific period of time
  • Suspend a Member’s licence while he or she completes specific requirements
  • Place conditions upon the Member’s licence
  • Pay a fine up to 5000 dollars.
  • Any other requirements as requested by the Committee

LPNs, are you interested in serving the public as a member of the SALPN Council? Did you know the SALPN is delegated the responsibility to regulate the profession on behalf of the government? Watch this video to learn more about the role.https://salpn.com/wp-content/uploads/Council-Elections-Informational-Video-v2.mp4

The regulation of professions is a provincial responsibility, but part of the responsibility is harmonizing with the regulators of other Canadian provinces. Nursing regulators from across Canada and the NNAS are discussing assessment of nursing education from around the world.

Beginning in 2022, LPNs writing the licensure exam will be tested on updated entry level competencies. You can review them here: https://salpn.com/wp-content/uploads/CCPNR-ELCs_2020E-SALPN-LOGO.pdf
