Nursing Advisory (NAC) Chair Workshop

February 13, 2019  |  Executive Hotel, Regina
February 14, 2019  |  Radisson Hotel, Saskatoon

Rooted in a foundation of transparency, accountability, respect and open communications, the Nursing Advisory Committee (NAC) process is designed to take a proactive and collaborative approach to concerns regarding patient safety and safe nursing practice. With the transition from 12 separate health regions and employers to one single provincial structure, now more than ever, it is crucial for SUN to be one consistent and strong voice in resolving professional practice, patient safety and workload concerns.

The role of the Local NAC Chair goes beyond receiving WSRs and attending Joint NAC meetings. The Local NAC Chair is the local expert on the NAC process and plays a key role in educating and guiding members effectively through the process, as well as taking an active role in finding appropriate, long terms solutions.
This can be an overwhelming task to take on, especially during a time of change. This one-day workshop has been developed to streamline and strengthen SUN’s NAC process, as well as assist Local NAC Chairs in understanding and navigating their role in representing member concerns under the new provincial structure.


This workshop is designed for the Local NAC Chair or designate.
Additional members may attend, if space permits, as locally funded or unfunded members.
