Please read and review your 2021 renewal options carefully!
Many members have chosen an incorrect 2021 renewal option causing unnecessary stress not only to themselves but also to the SALPN renewal support services. Mistakes are bound to happen especially if attempting your renewal on a small device like a Smartphone.
How can it be prevented?
After logging in to your SALPN Member Portal, please review your renewal options (Practicing or Non-Practicing) and select the one the appropriate one for you. The two options are displayed below as a reminder.
If you chose the wrong option by mistake, do not complete your renewal. Just simply scroll to the bottom of the page and click “Withdraw.” The incorrect option will be removed and you can start again!
Input Requested on the Revised Standards of Practice
We need your help. The Canadian Council of Practical Nurse Regulators (CCPNR) recently updated its Standards of Practice for Licensed Practical Nurses in Canada. These standards are authoritative statements that define the legal and professional expectations of the licensed practical nurse practice.
We are asking for your input about CCPNR’s updated Standards of Practice by giving you the opportunity to respond to the Licensed Practical Nurse Standards of Practice Survey. The survey is designed to validate the updated standards.
Please click here for more information, access to the survey, and the revised Standards of Practice.
No CEP hours will be approved for participating in this review.
2020 PPP Subscribers
Were you on the Pre-Authorized Payment Plan (PPP) program in 2020, and
pre-paid for your 2021 Practicing license? If so, you still need to renew! If you do not renew by 11:59 pm on December 1st, your 2021 renewal becomes subject to late fees, and your pre-paid payments will be reimbursed. Don’t delay, beat the rush and renew soon!
Members are now in charge of their own pre-authorized payment plan (PPP) using the Self-Service PPP Online Sign-Up Feature!
What does this mean? Members now have the responsibility to sign-up for the program, make changes to their banking information, or alternatively, remove themselves from the program all from their SALPN Member Portal.
Not on the PPP? Sign up by clicking the “Sign Up for PPP” tab on your portal.
Need to make changes to your banking information or cancel your subscription? Click the “My PPP Payments” tab on your portal.
