CNA develops and maintains the CRNE through its testing company, Assessment Strategies Inc., and in collaboration with the regulatory authorities. The provincial and territorial nursing regulatory authorities administer the exam and determine eligibility to write it.
The purpose of the CRNE is to protect the public by ensuring that the entry-level registered nurse possesses the competencies required to practise safely and effectively.

this learning plan was compiled to assist you as you prepare for the licensure examination and establish your nursing career in Canada. The learning plan that follows includes a variety of learning activities and is not intended to be an all-inclusive study guide. Refer to this learning plan as often as you need over the coming months.

Development of learning plans is a continuing competence requirement for registered nurses in the province of Saskatchewan. With this in mind,
the CRNE learning plan was designed to introduce you to the continuing competence program. You will note that there is no column Suggested

for the CRNE, based on your own learning style and life circumstances. We encourage you to choose from a variety of learning activities and
strategies based on your individual needs and experiences.

CRNE to prepare for our national examination. Preparation is recommended from week twelve up to and including week zero (the week of the
scheduled writing of the CRNE). For example, if the CRNE is being written:
