Discipline Decisions

The College of Licensed Practical Nurses of Saskatchewan exists for the purpose of mitigating risk and reducing harm to the public through regulation of the LPN profession. As part of its mandate for public protection, the CLPNS, as described by the Licensed Practical Nurses Act, 2000, must produce disciplinary decisions for the public.

A disciplinary hearing will be conducted when any matter is referred to the Discipline Committee for their review.   The Discipline Committee consists of at least three members appointed by the CLPNS council, a majority of whom need to be practicing LPNs. Disciplinary hearings allow CLPNS Membership the opportunity to address the complaint in a formalized tribunal setting.

Powers of the Disciplinary Committee

At the conclusion of the hearing, if the Discipline Committee finds that a Member is guilty of either professional misconduct or professional incompetence as defined in the Act, the Committee can decide on the following actions.

  • Expel the Member from the College
  • Suspend a Member’s licence for a specific period of time
  • Suspend a Member’s licence while he or she completes specific requirements
  • Place conditions upon the Member’s licence
  • Pay a fine up to 5000 dollars.
  • Any other requirements as requested by the Committee
