Saskatchewan’s PeriAnesthesia nursing colleagues first began discussions to form a special interest group in 1998. PANGS' request to be recognized as a Professional Practice Group was approved by the Saskatchewan Registered Nurses Association (SRNA) late in 2002 and the PeriAnesthesia Nurses’ Group of Saskatchewan (PANGS) was officially formed in 2003.

PANGS  Objectives

    to promote high  standards  for  PeriAnesthesia  nursing;   

    to represent  Saskatchewan  PeriAnesthesia nurses locally and nationally, and to support 

   the objectives  of  NAPAN©; 

    to identify needs and to promote continuing education and research in 

   PeriAnesthesia Nursing; 

    to share knowledge  and issues  about  matters  relating  to PeriAnesthesia settings;  

    to promote speciality certification.


Conferences and Meetings:

PANGS holds an annual general meeting and conference as well as quarterly conference call meetings of the executive. The annual conference is usually held in the fall with the annual general meeting on the same day. Often the conference is done in conjunction with the Saskatchewan Operating Room Nurses Group (SORNG). PANGS members receive a reduced registration fee for the annual conference. Check this website for info about the annual fall conference and AGM. 

"PANGS also assists members with registration fees to attend the NAPANc Annual General Meeting and Conference, dependent upon funds available. 

PANGS will sponsor one early bird registration amount for the 2019 National Conference. The recipient will be drawn from the applications received for the NAPANc Bursary Application for National Conference.

Information regarding PANGS activities and contacts are also posted on the SRNA website."   For Conference Registration Click here or on the picture
