As a mandatory component of yearly licensing in Saskatchewan, there is no one better to speak to about its effectiveness, ease of use and execution than those who are required to participate on an ongoing basis. The program allows for nurses to take the lead in their ongoing professional development, competence development and supports nurses to continue to provide the best quality and safest care to their clients. The CRNS wants Saskatchewan nurses to have a voice in the conversations, to aid in revising a program that they support and will be active participants in while embracing the opportunities that it provides their ongoing practice.
Continuing Competence Program Review
In June 2020, the CRNS made a strategic decision to review the Continuing Competence Program (CCP) process and determine whether it meets the needs of its members. In April 2021, a CCP Advisory Committee was created to begin the process of reviewing the current CCP with the intended roll out of any recommendations to the program to begin in the 2023 registration renewal year. The purpose of the committee is to provide recommendations to the CRNS regarding a review and re-implementation of the mandatory CCP which aligns with right touch regulation principles of consistency, transparency, accountability and agility. If bylaw amendments are required, they will be reviewed by Council and presented to members of the CRNS at the Annual Meeting in May 2022.
