    Bonjour,


    I really enjoyed readind this thread!I'm joun and I am French.I am actually taking my English exams and passed the american RN license.I'm living in Cleveland(Ohio)!I think that you can find an agency which will hire you as a nurse assistant(aide soignant).I don't have the address of this agency but it was in Paris.The name of this agency was "Bastille".I remmember that because I was visiting nurse(when you give nursing care in patient's home) and I used to work with different kind of people from different agencies.So,try to find something to give care at home.Also,you can find a little job as a nursing assistant to take care of old persons it's a good way to improve your French and have money!Feel free to e-mail me if you need help!Good luck!

    Hello everyone,
    I have wanted to move to France since my first visit in 1987. The language barrier intimidated me, life happened and I never moved or learned French.
    I understand that the nursing boards need to taken in French. Is there a guide for studying? Thirty three years have passed since my last nursing course. At present, I am working in dialysis with a background in Critical Care. Perhaps it is possible to contact a hospital recruiter, express interest in a job and, as Carcha and Joun have mentioned, work as an aide until I take the boards?
    Any ideas?
    Many thanks to all who have contributed to this timely thread.

    hello sharon,
    I am a registered nurse from america who came to france to try to work here.
    i hold duel citezenship both french and american. It is very difficult here to get permission to work as a nurse. you must contact an agency in the town you wish to work at here called the DDASS there is an office in the major city for all of the department. you can look up the address and phone number on the internet just look up the DDASS there is one in Paris and one in Toulouse i have talked with them both.
    If you did not go to school in one of the european countries then you must pass an exam and go to nursing school for a minimum of one year maximum of three years. if you went to school or hold a license in a european country your only obligation is to understand french. you will be given an interview at the DDASS by another nurse who will decide if your french is good enough for you to work here if it is she will give you the authorization to work here if it is not then you CAN NOT WORK HERE. I am going to england at the beginning of the year to work for a little while so i will have a nursing license from a european country and will not have to take the nursing exam or go back to school in france my only obligation is to learn the language before i come back here. i have been living here for about one year now i did not know that i was going to have trouble with my diploma when i came"
    if you would like to talk more email me at cedriclagaillarde@hotmail.com.
    unfortunately you must learn your french well before you can work here but call the DDASS they can send you documents in english to explain all to you they did for me. best of luck michelle lagaillarde

    if you apply to england for a license and then go to france your only obligation is to speak and understand french you will not have to take any exam. you will only have an interview in french to test you on your language skills pass that and they give you your license because england is part of the european community. contact the DDASS and they will send you a document in english telling you what you need they did for me.if you come here with an american diploma you must take a nursing exam then depending on what you make on the exam go to nursing school for a minimum of one year maximum of three years. you can work as a aide only in private facilities not public with an american diploma i start work in about two weeks. i will pass a small exam for the aide in december given at the DDASS you speak with a doctor who test your skills and language then if they give the ok you work one week for the red cross and three weeks for a hospital then you can be a nurse aide at any facility you want.

    any info on working as a liberal nurse in france i heard they make a lot of money more than working for a hospital.
    by the way nurse aides make between 1100-1300 euro a month here
    and nurses make between 1400-1800 a month this is in nursing homes
    thanks

    I am very excited about my chosen career in Nursing! I have a strong desire to live and work in France as a Nurse. I studied the language in High School for 2 years and my partner is majoring in French and will be moving there for his graduate degree. I would like to be supportive of his career and excell in mine as well. This thread really opens up new doors for me. You may not be aware of how much your posts have improved my mindset on my goals. If there is anyone that would like to be pen pals overseas and may be of help in the future..it would be very welcomed. Thank You!
