Political advocacy is defined as publicly supporting or suggesting an idea, development, or a way of doing something. SANP practices political advocacy by:
The SANP Executive works on behalf of NPs by connecting works with stakeholders across the province; including all levels of government, the Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA), the Saskatchewan Union of Nurses (SUN), the College of Registered Nurse of Saskatchewan (CRNS), and others. This advocacy work has the overarching purpose of expanding knowledge of the profession, advocating for improved utilization of NPs, and inclusion of NPs in the design and delivery of health care to ensure consistent and quality care for the residents of Saskatchewan.
SANP is proud to maintain and foster new relationships with other professional practice groups and associations. Through these relationships, SANP continues to articulate the NP role, scope of practice, and value our role brings to delivery of health care in the province. SANP highlights the benefits of care from the right health care professional, for the right patient, at the right time.
