Entry to Practice Competencies

Entry to Practice Competencies

Entry to Practice Competencies for Licensed Practical Nurses is a document that describes the competencies expected of the entry-level licensed practical nurse in Canada.  The competencies describe the knowledge, skill, judgement and attitude required of beginning practitioners to provide safe, competent and ethical nursing care.  The document serves as a guide for curriculum development and for public and employer awareness of the practice expectations of the entry-level licensed practical nurse.  

The SALPN has adopted this document for use in Saskatchewan. The ETPCs will be incorporated into the Practical Nursing program and tested on the national licensure exam in 2022
