Continuing Competence Program

The CRNS’s Continuing Competence Program (CCP) is a mandatory, ongoing program that ensures all RNs and NPs continually enhance their practice through self-directed learning. The three components of the CCP are:

  1. A self-assessment based on reflection using the current practice standards (What will I work on this year?)
  2. Development of a learning plan (How will I learn this?)
  3. An evaluation of your nursing care in your setting (How does the learning impact my practice?)

Every RN and NP must complete the CCP annually as part of the requirements to hold a license to practice registered nursing in Saskatchewan. All RNs and NPs are legally required to complete the CCP, even for a partial year. As soon as you obtain your Saskatchewan license, access the resources below and follow the instructions on initiating your self-assessment and developing your learning plan online. You will complete the evaluation just prior to registration renewal. If you have questions or need assistance completing your CCP, contact practiceadvice@crns.ca for support and guidance.

How to Complete Your CCP Video

Online

To complete your CCP online, log into your online self-service and locate the CCP link on the left-hand side of your  profile area. You may begin a new CCP or edit an existing one at any time throughout the registration year. Once you have fully completed your plan and no further editing is required, you will be able to submit your CCP. After submitting, you will no longer be able to edit the plan but will continue to be able to view your submission(s).

If you would like to print a copy of your submitted CCP plan:

  • log into your online self-services and click on the CCP link. Your submitted CCP learning plan will be in a box according to the year completed.
  • Click on the print button located on the right-hand side of the box. A summary of your learning plan will appear including the practice standards, goals and activities chosen and your evaluation comments.
  • Click on the print button located at the top left-hand corner of the summary page.
