Projet ICI (Initiative Communautaire Infirmiere) is a collaborative network for nursing professional development and education dedicated to maximizing the reach, accessibility, and impact of co-created knowledge. Our principal aim is to integrate clinical, research and community expertise to advance the nursing profession and the health of our communities.
Through Projet ICI, the Quebec Nurses’ Association works in partnership with community organizations in the health and social service sectors to create affordable, online accredited courses for nurses. We use a profit-sharing finance model to support community organizations.
We believe that community stakeholders are holders of unique knowledge and expertise about the health needs and goals of their communities. Through Projet ICI we are:
- Advancing the nursing profession by building community voices into nursing education
- Sustaining community health organizations through profit-sharing
- Linking nurses with their communities
- Creating affordable, accessible and diverse continuing education for nurses
We are currently hard at work with several community partners and nursing experts. Stay tuned for upcoming courses and capsules!
