Founded in September 2003, our family company is notorious in the field of training, recruitment and placement of nursing staff with specialization in nursing in the expanded role in remote regions. Our company is in constant expansion and growth. We owe our success mainly to our client’s satisfaction with our training in nursing practice in the expanded role and to the quality of our recruited nursing staff. Our organization is now considered as a leader in Quebec in this specialty.
In 2006, our company was awarded the Alpha Contest prize of the Chamber of Commerce of Ville St-Laurent for the young enterprise having most distinguished itself.

In 2007, we signed a public-private partnership agreement with the Ungava Tulattavik Health Center. We took care of the advertising, the recruiting, the medical examination and the training of all the pre-hired personnel of the Ungava Tulattavik Health Center. For a period of 7 years, we have contributed greatly to their efficiency in terms of staffing for that organization. In a context of shortage, the Ungava Tulattavik Health Center had sometimes over 30 nurses waiting for one position.
In 2008, we became property owners. We adapted our premises to answer our specific needs. The upper floor is exclusively dedicated to our training activities. The training activities becoming more and more significant, we created a 2nd company, Formation Solutions Nursing Inc.
In September 2009, after many hours of work, Formation Solutions Nursing Inc is proud to have its own guide and launches the Soluguide. This book is designed to be used by the nurses working in the expanded role but can also be a great help to everyone who is part of the nursing staff.
From October 2010 till June 2013, we have an agreement with the Cree Board of Health and Social Services of James Bay to assist them in the recruitment of their nursing staff. We execute the information sessions and do the selection interviews for them.
In 2011, our Soluguide becomes a success beyond our expectations. We print our 4th edition in French and our 1st edition in English. The company now goes beyond the Quebec borders, not only for the sale of the Soluguide, but also for our training, especially in British-Columbia.
In 2013, we sold our Soluguide in Europe and our first training sessions are now available online, among all of our information sessions.
In 2014, progress is still knocking at our door and we break new grounds in our evaluation process, whether it is in the field of recruiting or training. We also offer new contract possibilities in order to deal with various situations that could come up among the hired nursing staff, giving them more possibilities.
