What is NAPN?

The Native Access Program to Nursing (NAPN) is a support and retention service for Aboriginal nursing students, which includes currently those enrolled in the Nursing Education Program of Saskatchewan (NEPS), the Practical Nursing Program, and the Psychiatric Nursing Program, and, in the future, those enrolled in the Bachelor of Science in Nursing Program at the University of Saskatchewan. Support is also available for Aboriginal students enrolled in the Post-Registration Program and the Master's Program at the College of Nursing.  NAPN currently has offices at   the College of Nursing, on the University of Saskatchewan campus, as well as at the Nursing Division at SIAST Wascana and SIAST Kelsey campus.

Our mandate is "Success and Excellence for Aboriginal Nursing Students"
