Changes to NP Hour Requirements
As of December 1, 2020, Nurse Practitioners in Saskatchewan will no longer be required to complete clinical hours to maintain eligibility for registration. According to SRNA Bylaw VI subsection 3(7), NPs are required to work in nurse practitioner activities approved by the SRNA in one of the four specialties for at least 900 hundred hours in the three years immediately preceding application. However, there is no longer a requirement for clinical hours.
This modification was made in recognition of the evolution that has taken place in NP practice and the increased diversity of their practice outside of a clinical setting.
