The first year students of the Institute of Training in Nursing (IFSI) started classes this Monday, September 10, in the presence of Didier Gamerdinger, Minister of Social Affairs and Health, Benoite de Sevelinges, Director of the Princess Grace Hospital Centre, and Monique Le Du, Director of IFSI.
The Minister warmly congratulated the students for being among the winners of the IFSI Entrance Exam, which this year counted 135 candidates for 30 places, including 26 from the PACA region.
Meanwhile, the CHPG this year reopened the Training Institute of Aides-Caregivers in the premises of the IFSI.
Given the need for caregivers in the Principality, it seemed appropriate to reactivate this training which will benefit from the pooling of lessons with the Nursing Training Institute, Monique Le Du said. The course had been stopped in 2000 because of a lack of space.
The Aides-Caregivers Training Institute has been welcoming students since Monday, September 3, 2018.
Didier Gamerdinger said: “There was a real need to re-establish a training course for nursing assistants. We are delighted with this renaissance within the premises of IFSI.”
