SIHL Scholarship

SALPN Scholarships to the Saskatchewan Institute of Health Leadership (SIHL)

The Saskatchewan Institute of Health Leadership (SIHL) is coordinated by the Centre for Continuing Education, University of Regina. The aim of SIHL is to bring together healthcare professionals from all disciplines and all levels to foster leadership potential, skills and the creation of a leadership community that works together to promote, support and sustain good health. 

It is the first of its kind in Canada. Registration is limited to 30 students per course. Successful participants receive a Certificate that attests to mastery of the core competencies.

The SALPN has been involved in SIHL from its inception. Since 2007, the Council has been awarding SIHL Scholarships to practicing LPNs.  The guidelines for awarding the scholarships are:

  • Submission of the SIHL Application Form to the SALPN.
  • A commitment to return for service which may include:
    • running for the SALPN Council
    • sitting on SALPN Committees
    • presenting at a SALPN event
    • volunteering to Coach at future SIHL programs
    • any other mutually agreed to professional activities

Sucessful applicants will be required to submit a testimonial for the SALPN Summer Hand-in-Hand Newsletter and also present their experience at the SALPN AGM or Professional Development Day. 

The scholarship includes the full tuition fee and all reasonable travel and accommodation expenses. Wage replacement is not covered. Application deadline is August 15th, 2016.

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
