  • Practice in accordance with the standards of practice and guidelines established by the Saskatchewan Association of Licensed Practical Nurses (SALPN)

Graduates may find careers in acute-care hospitals, rehabilitation hospitals, medical centers and extended care facilities. Practical nurses can gain exposure in a number of clinical areas:

  • medical care
  • surgical care
  • maternal-child or pediatric care
  • rehabilitation
  • palliative care

Upon completion, graduates are eligible to write the national licensure examination for registration as Licensed Practical Nurses in Saskatchewan and can practice in any province or territory in Canada.
