Are you currently Non-Practicing and planning to return to practice sometime in 2020? If so, please communicate with the SALPN in a timely fashion to ensure a smooth registration change to Practicing status. Remember, if you are returning to work in any capacity, including a return to work program, you are required to be a Practicing LPN. Please see more information and access the required change form below.
*Coming very soon to a device near you… ONLINE NON-PRACTICING TO PRACTICING CHANGE FORM. Stay tuned for this option in the very near future!
Alternatively, are you currently Practicing and planning a leave from practice in 2020? For example, if you are going on maternity leave in the next few months, you may want to consider changing your status from Practicing to Non-Practicing. Please see more information and access the required change form below.
The SALPN is preparing to begin the annual licensure audit and so should you! Beginning March 1st, members will be notified of their required participation in the audit via email. The email will include which type of audit you are to complete (Hours of Work, CEP hours, CRC), the completion deadline, information of what is required, and instructions to upload the requirements to your SALPN Member Portal. To best prepare for a potential audit, please watch your inbox carefully in March for full details!
Provide Your Feedback as an LPN
The SALPN has offered to share the following information from the Canadian Nurses Association (CNA) as a courtesy to LPNs in Saskatchewan, providing another resource for your nursing leadership and practice.
“We want to enter into conversations and to really hear the diversity of views of nurses and others in all areas of Canada. We want to hear from you about how to best meet the needs and expectations of our current CNA members and potential members, and we want to know what kind of professional association would appeal to nurses who are not yet members”. – CNA
The 2020 SALPN Council call for election nominations is fast approaching!
There is one position of Council Member up for election in the Spring of 2020. Council positions are open to both Practicing and Non-Practicing SALPN members in “good standing.”
SALPN Council members draw on their knowledge and experience of the LPN profession to make responsible decisions as Council members. Because the SALPN is legislated to regulate the profession in the interest of the public, the Council does not represent the views and professional interests of LPNs.
Council Member Position
Minimum of four 2-day in person meetings annually
Possible SALPN committee work
Active participation in the development and execution of the SALPN Strategic Plan.
