Students who are not functionally bilingual will need to acquire facility in French in order to practice in Québec. If a student’s Québec high school diploma (Sec V) was acquired before 1985 or if the student has arrived from another Canadian province or another country, the student will be required to pass a French professional language examination given by the  Office Québécois de la langue française, to obtain a permanent professional license from the OIIQ. Special courses have been developed by our French Department to prepare Nursing students to meet these licensing requirements. French is mandatory as a core course and incoming students take a placement test.
