The SRNA regulates Saskatchewan registered nursing practice in the best interest of the public through investigation of written complaints about a SRNA member’s professional competence and/or professional conduct.
When it is appropriate based on the evidence, education and remedial work can be used to correct and improve member practice so that the standards, competencies and code of ethics are followed. Where it is not appropriate to use a low-level process following an investigation, then the matter can be referred to a discipline hearing.
The Registered Nurses Act, 1988, mandates the SRNA have an independent, fair, and unbiased investigation and discipline processes. The jurisdiction for investigation and discipline are only SRNA members who are licensed to practice as: RNs, GNs, RN(AAP)s, RN(NP)s, and RN(GNP)s in Saskatchewan.
