Demandes du public

May I continue to work as a midwife and still be an inactive member?

Yes. These are two distinct professions. The Act reserves three activities to midwives when the pregnancy is progressing normally. However, retired nurses may no longer perform activities reserved to nurses (in French only), including:

  • assessment of the physical and mental condition of a symptomatic person;
  • clinical monitoring of the condition of persons whose state of health presents risks, including monitoring and adjusting the therapeutic nursing plan;
  • nursing follow-up for persons with complex health problems.
