About the Conference

The annual Saskatchewan Nurse Practitioners Education Conference is hosted by the Saskatchewan Association of Nurse Practitioners (SANP). It consists of a 1 1/2 day conference followed by an additional half day workshop focusing on a specific topic. The conference attracts up to 100 nurse practitioners, health care managers, and nurse practitioner students from across Saskatchewan. It is open to NPs, RNs, and students interested in advance practice roles. The conference gives sponsors and exhibitors maximum exposure to NPs in primary, secondary, and tertiary care. The SANP also holds its AGM during the conference.

A Nurse Practitioner (NP) is a registered nurse (RN) with additional education in health assessment, diagnosis and management of illnesses and injuries, including prescribing drugs. Grounded in the nursing profession’s values, knowledge, theories and practice, the NP role complements other health care providers and is seen as an invaluable support to health care teams.
