The studies to become a nurse are done in a Nursing Training Institute (IFSI). They last 3 years and end with the State Diploma of Nursing (DEI) which is equivalent to a Bachelor’s degree. To obtain the DEI, it is necessary to validate all the Teaching Units (UE): theoretical knowledge, practical and clinical knowledge learned through internships in medical structures, and a Graduation Work (Travail de Fin d’Études – TFE) validated by a jury, on a clinical subject of your choice.
How to access nursing studies?
The training is accessible with a baccalauréat. Whatever your administrative status, you must go through the Parcoursup platform.
What if I already have a nursing diploma?
Foreign nursing diplomas are not recognized in France. You have to go to a Nursing Training Institute to evaluate your skills. You can then be exempted from certain teaching units and complete your training and complete the End-of-Study Work to obtain the State Diploma in Nursing.
Where to find information and testimonials?
The website https://www.infirmiers.com/ offers all the necessary information with testimonials from IFSI students, help with the courses, explanations on the End of Studies Work, etc.
