Quebec OIIQ Exam

  1. Is there anyone who did the Quebec OIIQ exam? I would like to know what is the OSCE ( the role-playing) about? Can anyone gives me the scenario?
    Thank You very much for your help!
    (I'm graduating soon) ^.^

    Unfortunately we can not talk about the exam too much..role playing would probably involve real life scenerios that you will encounter...do not panic just breathe and do your best

    I hope it is like the NCLEX in the states, because that's how I will study for it! Hope someone will answer this question for both of us!

    well the NCLEX is very different....the OIIQ exam is not computerized..and there is a practical aspect....I think that the NCLEX is harder..and much more specialized in the aspect of questions that they ask

    The OIIQ exam is a two day exam that is composed of short answer questions and the OSCE. Each day is dedicated to one part. The OSCE are different situations in which you are being tested on how you do in the practical area. For example you might be given a situation in which you have to do some drug teaching. In the room with you, will be a patient (and actor) and the observer who will mark you for your performance. Things to keep in mind when going to the room in each and every situations are: always state that you've washed your hands, introduce yourself to the patient and the purpose of your interaction with him/her. provide privacy etc. There are no multiple questions and there is a preperation book that you can buy from the OIIQ. It will give you an idea of the type of questions they might ask you, the mistakes people usually do, readings you might find useful, and different situations that might take place during the OSCE exam. I'm taking the exam at the end of the summer and very nervous about it. Good luck to you all. Let me know if you have more questions

    Hey,
    It all depends on the hospital you are working in. If you are in one of the English hospitals then charting and doctor orders are written in English. If the Doctor is more "French" then they might choose to communicate with patients and nurses in French but you can always ask them to say it again in English and after a while you should make yourself comfortable with the French language. Most floors also have rounds with the doctors and if the doctors prefer speaking French then the whole thing is done in French. Don't forget, if you are planning to work in Quebec you need to pass a French exam.
    Hope this helps you a bit
    Best of luck

    There is an OIIQ exam prep guide that has scenarios in it. It is very good. I bought mine through the bookstore at my school. I'm sure you can find it through the OIIQ website. http://www.oiiq.org/

    Bonne chance

    EDIT: Didn't see how old this posting was...
