Today, nurses deliver 90% of all health care services in the world. Health care technology is constantly evolving, and as a result, nurses are called upon to be lifelong learners. The Ingram School of Nursing offers a range of continuing education options to support your learning plans.
The Ingram School of Nursing Continuing Education Office is endorsed by the Office for Continuing Professional Development (CPD) of McGill University’s Faculty of Medicine. The CNE office is recognized by the province of Quebec's professional order, the Ordres des Infirmières et Infirmiers du Québec’s (OIIQ), as an accrediting organization for nursing professional educational activities: http://www.oiiq.org/formation-continue/norme-de-formation-continue/faq#t....
For Nurses based in Quebec
The Continuing Nursing Education (CNE) office of the Ingram School of Nursing (ISoN) was established in 2014 in response to the OIIQ's 2012 policy regarding the obligation for all nurses to engage in continuing nursing education. Our professional order mandates that nurses must maintain competency by engaging in regular professional development. As of 2013, nurses in Quebec must obtain 20 hours of professional development per year (7 hours of which must be accredited): http://www.oiiq.org/formation-continue/norme-de-formation-continue.
Along with the OIIQ, the CNE office shares this commitment to excellence by facilitating access to quality continuing nursing education. Through the process of accreditation, we support the nursing community in the development of professional learning experiences that will contribute directly to the delivery of quality health care to patients and to the advancement of the nursing profession.
Accreditation of Nursing Professional Educational Activities
The CNE office offers accreditation for Nursing educational activities or programs that are organized by health institutions, nursing associations, and educational institutions (including CEGEPs and universities).
