Education Standards Advisory Committee (ESAC)

The Education Standards Advisory Committee (ESAC) reviews current and proposed Practical Nurse programs in Alberta, and sets standards for both basic and specialty programs. ESAC reports to CLPNA’s Council, fulfilling an important step in CLPNA’s mandate of excellence in practical nursing.

Council weighs ESAC’s report and recommendations as part of the process of ensuring that practical nursing graduates in Alberta have the necessary competence to best serve the public.

For those interested in joining ESAC, a background in practical nurse education or as an educator/preceptor is valuable. This committee meets on demand 6 to 12 days per year for scheduled meetings.
