To honour National Nursing Week and the incredible work nurses do for our community, we're highlighting the University of Regina and Saskatchewan Polytechnic Collaborative Nurse Practitioner Program (CNPP) and two impressive recent graduates, Jocelyn Schrader and Lara Metheral. In partnership with Saskatchewan Polytechnic, the CNPP offers an innovative approach to primary care nurse practitioner (NP) education. An NP is a registered nurse (RN) with graduate level educational preparation who possesses advanced clinical knowledge and can autonomously assess; order and interpret diagnostic tests; diagnose; prescribe pharmaceuticals; and perform specific medical procedures within their legislated scope of practice.
