I'm going to Dawson College in Montreal for Nursing. It's a 3-year program, in English to become an LPN, in Quebec (though judging by the previous posters, that may have changed recently). After that, you have to take two years of university to get a degree (and I'm assuming become an RN) and work outside of Quebec. As far as french goes, you'll be taking french in this program no matter what, but to work, you'll only need minimal french anyways. I personally know and have dealt with many healthcare professionals who know barely any. And there's a pretty big segregation between the "English hospitals" (i.e. St-Mary's, Jewish general, Shriner's) and the "French hospitals" (i.e. St-Luc, Notre-Dame, Hotel-Dieu) in Montreal, believe me.
Check out the FAQ too, it's pretty helpful. Let me know if you have any other questions
