SALPN Council

What is Council?

Council is the governing body of the SALPN.  As a self-regulating profession, LPNs are voluntarily elected to Council.  The seven LPN positions on the SALPN Council consist of the President, President Elect and five (5) Member at Large positions each representing a regional zone.  In addition, there are three public representatives appointed by the Minister of Health and the Executive Director.
