The SALPN Council wants to hear from you.
The Council is responsible for developing SALPN’s goals and priorities for the next 3-5 years with a strategic plan. Help the Council develop their next strategic plan by providing input about the things you think will impact SALPN’s role as a regulator.

When is the last time you reviewed your nursing Code of Ethics?
If it’s been a while, we challenge you to review the Code. As you read through it, think about each statement and how they apply in your specific practice area.
For example, ask yourself:
- Within Responsibility to the Public, how do I demonstrate an understanding that community, society and the environment are important factors in the health of individual clients?
- Within Responsibility to Clients, how do I demonstrate that I use evidence and judgement to guide nursing decisions?
- Within Responsibility to the Profession, how do I demonstrate that I practice consistently with the privilege and responsibility of self-regulation?
- How do I demonstrate respect for my colleague’s expertise and share my expertise and knowledge with others?
If you can see how you demonstrate all the Principles in the Code (not just a few above), you are well-positioned in your ethical nursing practice. However, if you see that there are aspects of your practice that is not in alignment with the Code, this is an indication that you need to adjust your practice.

SALPN Welcomes New Council Members
The SALPN Council welcomes new Council Members, Uniqa Anmol and Kim Flath. A virtual orientation, for new and existing Council Members, was held on June 8 providing information about the roles, responsibilities and administration of the Council.
Attending orientation to the SALPN Council prior to beginning the work of a Council Member is one of the ways the SALPN Council can meet Standard 1 of the Regulatory Performance Standards; Council and Statutory Committee members have the knowledge, skill, and ability needed to effectively execute their role and fulfil their responsibilities as they relate to SALPN’s public protection mandate.

NEW! SALPN Student Membership
The SALPN has recently launched an option for Student Membership! Do you know someone currently enrolled in their first year of a Saskatchewan Practical Nursing Education Program? If so, encourage them to register as a SALPN Student Member.
Joining the SALPN Student Membership provides PN students with early access to important SALPN or
nursing-related information. The SALPN will provide student members with regular email notifications touching on some of the following valuable topics:
- SALPN’s mandate of public protection
- LPN Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics
- LPN regulation
- Practice Guidance Documents and Policies
- the CPRNE
- Registration and Licensure
- and much more!
Student membership is not a license to practice but allows students to:
- attend and participate, but not vote, at all meetings of the SALPN, such as at the Annual General Meeting
- to receive notices and newsletters from the SALPN
There is no cost for the student membership enrollment, so if you know a first-year student, encourage them to sign up today to learn more!
