Hello from France - Page 2Register Today!
- Aug 29, '09 by marksimmonsHello Fred,
I just saw your post and wanted to say hello. I'm a nurse working near San Francisco in California, US. I noticed you live in Bretagne. Such a beautiful place, I have visited several times.
I'm curious about nursing in France and would like to maybe try to find a job sometime next year or later in Paris. I have dual american/italian citizenship so I thinking there's no legal problem to work in France. But is it true that France does not recognize american nursing diplomas?
Any information you have would be helpful.

you can find many informations on this thread : http://allnurses.com/international-n...nce-51801.html
San Francisco is a nice place to live, stay there and come in France for vacations !
If you have an Italian citizenship it's more easy to come and work in Europe. To work in france first you must speak French and after you have to pass the French nurse diploma maybe 1 year of school (maybe 2 years). You will be pay 1600 € (US$ 2000) and work in very bad conditions ! So you only work 35 hours per week and have many vacations.
Good luck if you really want to work in France.

thank you for your response and yes, I'm beginning to see how complicated it is to work in France. You're right, I'll think I'll stay here and maybe retire in France.
