SALPN Mandatory Competency – IV Initiation/Therapy

The Saskatchewan Association of Licensed Practical Nurses (SALPN), has an upcoming mandatory requirement effective for the 2019 licensure year.  All current Practicing and Non-Practicing Members must successfully complete or challenge IV Initiation/Therapy education on or before December 1, 2018, to meet the 2019 licensure renewal requirements.   

Members who do not complete the education or have not provided the SALPN with proof of completion will not be eligible for a 2019 Practicing license or Non-Practicing certification.  Renewal late fees and possibly, reinstatement, will apply to Members who provide proof of completion information after the December 1st deadline date.   

Information about the IV Initiation/Therapy course offered at Saskatchewan Polytechnic can be found at the following link; http://saskpolytech.ca/programs-and-courses/part-time-studies/course/iv-therapybloodprod-comp-lpn/NRSG-254CE/. 

Saskatchewan Polytechnic courses are filling fast, do not delay registering!  The IV Initiation/Therapy course is worth 15 Continuing Education hours, and apply to the Formalized Education category.

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
