Saskatchewan Registered Nurses' Association


RNs as part of the health care team have a unique role. Managers of RNs often have questions about the clinical, professional and scope of practice of RNs. This toolkit has been designed to:

  • Provide at-a-glance information on a variety of RN practice questions.
  • Identify responsibilities of RNs in the workplace and the role of managers of RNs in supporting RNs to meet those responsibilities.
  • Identify resources available to support managers of RNs.
  • Answer some commonly asked questions.


If you are a new manager, this Top 10 List with Fast Facts will provide you with some key information to get you started. For all managers, if after reviewing this toolkit, you have further questions, Nursing Practice Advisors are available to speak with you. You can contact them by phone: 1-800-667-9945 or in Regina, 306-359-4200 or by email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
