Virtual Q&A for nurses who earned their degrees outside Canada

The Ordre des infirmières et infirmiers du Québec (OIIQ) is proud to host a virtual Q&A session for nurses who earned their degrees outside Canada.

Nurses with degrees earned outside Canada who wish to practice in Quebec must apply for diploma or training equivalence and a practice permit.

To assist nurses in this process, the OIIQ is hosting a collaborative Q&A session to answer any questions they may have regarding the application process, regulatory issues and career pathways.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • What is the process to open a file?
  • Why must the required documents be provided?
  • What happens after an application is filed?
  • What is the required assessment based on?
  • How do temporary permits work?
