Introducing the College of Registered Nurses of Saskatchewan (CRNS)

We are pleased to introduce you to the College of Registered Nurses of Saskatchewan (CRNS), previously known as the Saskatchewan Registered Nurses Association (SRNA), our new name, logo and look to represent our continued vision of being recognized as a leader in regulatory excellence.

For more than 100 years, the SRNA has served as the regulator and the association for Registered Nurses in the province. Throughout 2019 and in to 2020, SRNA Council reflected on the dual mandate of the organization by meeting with key partners, provincial and national professional counterparts in health, government officials and regulatory professionals. Council discussed the impact of separating regulatory functions from association functions with these partners and reviewed the changes happening within the Saskatchewan health professions. These meetings, reflections and research resulted in Council making the unanimous decision to move to a single mandate of registered nursing regulation for Saskatchewan in the name of protecting the public.

This new brand and name represents our next step in moving to a single mandate of regulation, achieving our mandate of protecting the public through fair, transparent and effective regulatory processes, refining our focus as the bridge between Registered Nurses and the public in Saskatchewan and renewing our dedication to upholding the standards of care.

During this transition, we will continue to work together and provide a platform for open dialogue and a framework to support registered nursing in Saskatchewan in the name of protecting the public.
