Saskatchewan Association of Licensed Practical Nurses Voluntarily Adopts New Regulatory Performance Standards
In January 2021, the SALPN announced that it voluntarily adopted seventeen new regulatory performance standards to guide the regulation of the Licensed Practical Nurse profession in Saskatchewan. The standards apply across eight domains throughout the organization’s work, including governance, SALPN’s legislated responsibilities, and SALPN’s relationships with stakeholders and system partners.
The Regulatory Performance Standards were developed to support:
- Improving the SALPN’s regulatory performance
- Increasing SALPN’s accountability and transparency
- Preserving the SALPN’s regulatory focus into the future
- Serving as a guide for strategy development, operational planning and reporting mechanisms.
Without a formal oversight body for regulators in Saskatchewan, SALPN assesses its own performance against the standards annually. The assessment results in a report outlining SALPN’s compliance. The Regulatory Performance Standards, the 2021 and the 2022 reports can be accessed here:
