College-branded items can be great tools to promote our programs, reinforce our presence in Saskatchewan and give personal thanks, but consideration must be given to the use of the item by the end-user. If the end-user doesn’t perceive value from the item, it often ends up in the garbage. Branded items definitely have a place and time for use, but alternatives to traditional promotional items should also be considered.  If there isn’t a promotional product available here that effectively meets the need of your end-user, consider doing something else, more meaningful, in its place.

Tracking Promotional Product Spending

There is a centralized tracking system to monitor the distribution of promotional items. For each request received, your name, the item(s) and total dollar value of items requested is recorded. If your maximum allocation has been reached, the request will not be fulfilled and you will be notified.

Returning Unused Promotional Items

If promotional items have been requested and not used, please return them to the College of Nursing campus where they were picked up. Unused promotional items that are returned will be tracked and credited back to your allocation if applicable.

Option to Purchase Promotional Items

The College of Nursing understands there may be instances where you may exceed your maximum allocated use, but still require items. In these instances, specific promotional product orders may be requested using a fund specified by you.

Individual orders of promotional items will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. If you are interested in purchasing promotional items from your own budget, please email the Senior College of Nursing Marketing and Communications Specialist to discuss.
