OIIQ Launches Mistral Portal for Continuing Education

The Ordre des infirmières et infirmiers du Québec (OIIQ) announced recently that they have completed the deployment of Mistral, their long-awaited continuing education portal.

As of January 1st 2012, nurses practicing in Quebec are required to devote a minimum of 20 hours per year to continuing education, seven (7) of which must be in an accredited activity, in accordance with the Norme professionnelle de formation continue adopted by the OIIQ.

Three (3) types of accredited continuing education content are available online via Mistral. Several interactive training modules, which can be accessed at any time, are available. A series of short video capsules, as well as Perspective Infirmière articles offering CEUs (Continuing Education Units) are also available.

Nurses interested in attending an accredited continuing education activity can consult the calendar of accredited activities or browse the training activity index for a comprehensive list of courses offered by the OIIQ as well as other organisations. You can also search for a specific training session by using the advanced search option, also available via the index.
