    This is on their website

    The Ordre des infirmières et infirmiers du Québec (OIIQ) Web site was designed in French, as all nurses practising in Quebec, like all members of any other professional order, must have good command of the French language. The information it provides is intended for its members and the general population of the province. However, the OIIQ has made parts of its Web site available in English, among other things to enable nurses outside Quebec and Canada who wish to know more about practising in Quebec to obtain relevant information.

    Just a question based on an idea. If you were in a situation where you had failed the CRNE had no chance in Canada ,,, THEN would you think it was worth giving Quebec a try to start your Nursing Career if you were willing to study French hardcore ,,, by which I mean hiring a tutor to seriously learn the language. Bit I also am seriously concerned about the comment about licensed staff being seriously underpaid!!
    I welcome all thoughts please share
    Cheers

    While I am not informed on the format and difficulty of the CRNE exam, I can tell you that the licensing exam for the OIIQ is pretty difficult. Half of it comprises of a written test, all of it is short answer, no multiple choice. The second part of it is a practical exam, where you see given situations, with actors, and gave to respond directly to the problems. There is someone in the room who sits, looks at you, and grades your performance.
    If you weren't able to pass the CRNE (you don't mention why) I have a hard time thinking you might pass the rest with OIIQ.
