Registered nurses will state the grade of a license bac + 3: that means he? This means that the three-year training in IFSI will be integrated into the academic curriculum of the "LMD". Today, after three years of training, the State diploma allows nurses to attend university in the third year license (or L3), a validation of two years of university studies (L1 and L2). Graduation state of nursing in this reform equivalent to the validation of three academic years of a cycle License. This should allow for the following future nurses who wish (July 2012) to continue their studies at bac + 5 university, that is to say, Master 1, probably after a few years of professional practice and in PhD. Do not they can continue their studies in master directly? The texts we have now are not as explicit. However, nursing education is very oriented towards employment, insofar as it involves many hours of theoretical (2100h) than clinical training (internship 2100h). It would seem logical that the license be obtained rather qualified "professional license" for an immediate employability in an environment where all care facilities urgently requires nurses. The master registration would be delayed. What types of master will be open to nurses? The IFSI should lean to universities to define, but remains to be built in the field of nursing. A number of nurses are already doing or have completed masters in social sciences (psychology, sociology, anthropology, health sciences, education ...). All depend on the profile of the project and of the person. What changed in September 2009 for nursing students returning in IFSI? Studies will be organized according to the academic division, two semesters per year for three years. The basic science education is provided by the University, the teaching of science and technology and the integration of nursing knowledge is provided by the IFSI. Regarding assessment, as with any device of this type in Europe, the validations partial knowledge (whatever their nature), which contribute to the overall validation of the ten competencies that make up the nursing profession, give rise to the allocation of a specified number of "credits" or ECTS (European Credit Transfers Student). Students must ultimately acquire 180 ECTS credits for their diploma. By entering this European scheme, nursing students should also have the possibility of one or two semesters in a European country (according to the conventions established by their university reference). This is an interesting novelty. What is the profile to have to succeed in this type of study? You must have the desire to work and be able to assess to them objectively. Students who enter IFSI are mostly graduates, but the performances are linked with regular learning. These are studies that require the investment grade for the license; we must work and be honest with our self. Reform provides for preferential access to IFSI for students who have failed their first year of medical school? Currently, it is expected that only students who have completed the second year of graduate medical education be allowed to present to the jury the state diploma in nursing if they have achieved and validated teaching units EU 3.1. S1 and EU 3.1.S2 ("Reasoning approach and clinical nurse"), "having completed two internships full-time nursing a total duration of 15 weeks," and "have created and validated a job writing staff of 15 to 20 pages focused on a problem specific to the nursing profession.
