RNs and RN(NP)s are leaders in contributing to a healthy population.

 

 

The Saskatchewan Registered Nurses’ Association (SRNA), established in 1917, is the profession-led regulatory body for the province’s Registered Nurses (RNs) and Registered Nurse-Nurse Practitioners [RN(NP)s]. The regulatory body is accountable for ensuring members are competent in providing the services that society has entrusted to them. Individual members are personally accountable for their professional nursing practice through adherence to the code of ethics, practice standards and maintaining competence.

The SRNA is also the association for RNs and RN(NP)s in the province; promoting the professional interest of its members in the public interest. This role includes working with our members and partners to influence healthy public policy and support quality practice environments. The association also implements strategies to support ongoing education of our 11,000 practicing members and promote evidence-based nursing.
