(French) - 5325

You are here

T he health care sector offers excellent professional opportunities and due to the aging population and an increased demand for health services, nursing in Quebec continues to be in demand.

CDI's Health, Assistance and Nursing - 5325 program in Quebec prepares the student to work as a Nursing Assistant or practical nurse,  in a variety of public or private health care facilities. The program combines both theoretical and practical instruction in a well-equipped classroom/laboratory setting. 

Health assistant graduates will be trained to provide patient care in a variety of situations including patients requiring physical rehabilitation, palliative care and preoperative and postoperative care.

Once you receive the Diploma of Vocational Studies (DVS), the pathway is open to college programs in nursing techniques, designed and written as part of a harmonization project aimed to facilitate the transition from one program to another, avoiding the duplication of learning.

This program is taught in French, see French program description below.


Le programme Santé, assistance et soins infirmiers - 5325 du Collège CDI prépare l’étudiante* à exercer la profession d’infirmière auxiliaire dans différents établissements privés et publics du réseau de la santé. Compte tenu des changements importants dans le réseau de la santé et des besoins considérables en personnel, ce domaine offre de nombreuses possibilités d’emploi à temps complet et à temps partiel. Tous les indicateurs confirment que ce secteur continuera de croître en raison du vieillissement de la population, de la prise en charge de leur santé par leurs proches, du virage ambulatoire et du développement du secteur privé. Par ailleurs, une fois le diplôme d'études professionnelles (DEP) acquis, la voie est ouverte vers le programme d’études collégiales en techniques en soins infirmiers, conçu et rédigé dans le cadre d’un projet d’harmonisation qui a pour but de faciliter le passage d’un programme à un autre ou d’un ordre d’enseignement à un autre, en évitant la duplication des apprentissages.
