8 School of Nursing : 8.3 Registration and Regulations : 8.3.2 Registration with the Profession (Immatriculation or Licensing during the Course of Study)

Registration with the Profession (Immatriculation or Licensing during the Course of Study)
All students enrolled in a Nursing program must be registered with the Ordre des infirmières et infirmiers du Québec - OIIQ (Order of Nurses of Quebec) to have access to the clinical field. B.Sc.(N.) students receive direct communication from the OIIQ to their Quebec mailing address in the Fall semester. (Students who do not have a Quebec address on the MINERVA system will not receive this notice and their clinical placement will be in jeopardy.) B.N. (Integrated) students must have passed the OIIQ professional examination or have received licensure from the OIIQ to take the first community clinical course NUR1 431. All Nursing students must adhere to the Code of Ethics of Nurses as outlined in the Professional Code R.S.Q., c. C-26, s. 87; 2001, c. 78, s. 6.
Registration of a student in Nursing may be revoked by the OIIQ for expulsion from a teaching establishment, for unacceptable conduct in the clinical milieu, criminal convictions, drug addiction, alcoholism, troubles of a physical or psychological nature incompatible with the practice of nursing, and for any other act derogatory to the dignity of the profession as outlined in the Professional code R.R.Q., 1981, c. I-8, r. 6, s. 2.01.
