RN Re-entry program

To maintain eligibility for registration, an RN licensed with the SRNA must practice 1125 hours in a 5-year period (Bylaw V. Registration. Section 3. Maintaining eligibility for registration). A person who has not maintained the 1125-hour practice bylaw must compete a re-entry program.

The Nursing Re-entry Program is offered by Saskatchewan Polytechnic, School of Nursing. Applicants must be referred to the program by the SRNA. Once an applicant is referred to the program, he/she has 3 years to complete the re-entry program.

Members completing the re-entry program must meet all requirements for licensure including good character. Note that regulations and entry requirements are subject to bylaw and policy changes. For information contact renew@srna.org
