There are three mandatory education upgrades required for licensure renewal through the SALPN’s Regulatory Bylaws. They are: 

  1. Health Assessment
  2. Medication Administration
  3. IV Initiation/Therapy

Applicants who did not complete any or all of the above courses must complete them before Saskatchewan licensure is issued.  Saskatchewan Polytechnic offers all three courses, but other comparable courses may be accepted. Please connect with us before enrolling in a course offered out of Saskatchewan to ensure it meets the SALPN’s standards. Proof of completion certificates or transcripts is required. Please email either document to registration@salpn.com . 


Visit Saskatchewan Polytechnic for enrollment dates.


Once you submit your application, a SALPN team member will review your information. If satisfied, the SALPN will notify you by email, and you can continue your application.   

Once your access is granted, please log back into your SALPN Portal for instructions.


*If the English language was not your first learned language and the language used in your home as a child for reading, writing, listening and speaking, then applicants must submit English Language Proficiency. If applicable, English Language Proficiency can be supported by one of the following options:

  1.  IELTS (International English Language Testing System)
  2. CELBAN (Canadian English Language Benchmark for Nurses)
  3. Evidence of completing four (4) years of full-time study in English in Canada. Full-time study is defined as a minimum of three (3) classes per semester

Following a successful review of the above, you can expect an email inviting you to log back into your portal to complete the $450 licensure payment. Once payment is processed, your LPN license will be issued. If there are questions or outstanding requirements for your application, you will be notified by email or telephone.
