Demande de stage

Out-of-Province Internship

Montfort welcomes several out-of-province interns each year. Nursing internship opportunities may include observation or consolidation internships (Preceptorship one-on-one). Several clinical services can accommodate interns.

Any request for an out-of-province internship requires a minimum of 6 to 8 weeks of preparation; every intern has to comply with Montfort’s requirements before starting his or her internship. See the list of requirements here.

Observation Internship

A nursing observation internship is recommended for any student who is not at the end of their program. The student will learn by observing his supervisor. He or she is encouraged to ask questions, to staff and patients. The student in observation training does not perform any technique, does not move any patient and does not administers any medication. We recommend this type of internship for up to 3 weeks. Note that the observation internship must be part of the requirements of the applicant’s training program.

Clinical Internship

In a clinical internship (the term internship consolidation or preceptorship is also frequently used), the student is assigned to a single supervisor / preceptor who will allow the intern, under his or her supervision, to meet patients and perform techniques according to his or her skills.

The intern may, depending on his or her skills and scope of practice, participate in most or all of the following tasks:

Administration of drugs (Oral, Intra Muscular or Sub-Dermal) certain IV drugs in secondary, manipulation (with supervision) and monitoring IV pumps
Electronic documentation Méditech
Sterile dressing / dressing change
Installation and care of a bladder or nasogastric catheter (depending on the area of practice)
Installation of a peripheral venous perfusion
File review (including anamnesis, allergies, code status, medication, prescriptions, blood test results or test)
Vital signs
Venipuncture
Capillary blood glucose
Collection of samples
Physical evaluation / monitoring
Basic Care
Communication
Inter professional collaboration 
Customer service

The teaching coordinator at Montfort and the internship coordinator determine together, and in anticipation of the internship, the tasks that can be performed by the international intern in nursing.

In addition to the support offered by the supervisor, the intern can count on the experience of the members of the department and the regular follow-ups by the teaching coordinator. Everyone is involved in the internship to enable the intern to achieve his or her objectives. The intern’s schedule is modeled after that of his supervisor.

Note that the clinical internship is recommended for interns at the end of their program. Not everyone can register; it must be part of the requirements of the applicant’s training program. See list of clinical internship opportunities in nursing here.

Work Language

The intern at Montfort must be able to offer quality care in both official languages (French and English). It may be necessary to conduct a telephone interview with the applicant to assess his or her language skills.

Orientation

Each internship includes a mandatory orientation of half a day to a full day depending on the case. During the orientation, the intern will be informed of the policies and procedures specific to Montfort and trained, in both logistics and security, to allow him or her to start the internship properly. An orientation invitation will be sent to the intern approximately two (2) weeks prior to the start of the internship.

Preceptor/Supervisor

The intern will know the identity of the preceptor or supervisor before the beginning of the internship. He or she will also receive all contact details so that the necessary information can be exchanged. In most cases, the intern will meet with the supervisor during the orientation, and will follow him or her afterwards.

Schedule

The shifts are either days and evenings or days and nights. All are 8 hours or 12 hours, depending on the department and service. With the exception of non-clinical areas, where supervisors work from Monday to Friday, weekend shifts are scheduled. The intern will be given the full schedule of his or her internship during the orientation.

Dress Code

The intern will have to purchase his or her own uniforms for clinical internships. For non-clinical placements, professional attire is required.

Accommodation

Montfort does not have student residences. The most popular search and booking platforms on the Web offer decent accommodations, both in terms of comfort and price, just a short walk from the Hospital. See the availabilities here.

Medical Care

All international students must have adequate and valid health insurance coverage in Ontario for the entire duration of their stay. If medical attention is required, see this page.

For urgent medical needs, call 911.
