Employers and places of work

My employer is asking me to confirm that I am actually entered on the Roll of the Order. What should I do?

Tell your employer that the only reliable way of verifying that you are authorized to practise nursing is to check online, at www.oiiq.org/droitexercice.

I have a new job. How should I indicate that?

  1. Go to the reserved section by clicking on the lock symbol at the top of the home page of the OIIQ website.
  2. In the “Professional practice” section of the Annual Declaration or the update of your file, indicate the date (year-month-day) when you left the job(s) previously listed in your file.
  3. Then go to the + symbol (“Add a position”) on your Annual Declaration form and enter all the required information regarding your new job.

How do I know whether I am a "salaried employee" or "self-employed"?

 

A nurse who works as a salaried employee agrees to work for an employer other than herself in exchange for wages. The employer supervises the work and exercises some control over the employee. A salaried nurse is generally granted certain fringe benefits.  

For example, my employer is a CISSS or a CIUSSS, but I work at one of its institutions. Which of the two is my work location?

You have to declare your place of work. If your employer is a CISSS or a CIUSSS and you are working at one of its institutions, indicate the name of the institution.

E.g., Résidence Avellin-Dalcourt and not the CISSS or CIUSSS. If you are working at the headquarters or administrative offices of the CISSS or CIUSSS, however, indicate the name of this CISSS or CIUSSS as your employer.

If you are working at more than one institution, indicate the name of the main institution.

I have changed positions or fields of practice but I am still working for the same employer. How should I show this?

Since you have the same employer, simply indicate your new position or your new field of practice using the table of codes.

  1. Go to the reserved section by clicking on the lock symbol at the top of the home page of the OIIQ website.
  2. In the “Professional practice” section of the Annual Declaration or the update of your file, click on the Change button and go to the appropriate box and make the change. Then click on the Save button.
