  • With basic training harmonised

    For certain types of training, the minimum basic training requirements have been harmonised at EU level. This may imply however that the national training requirements go further than the EU requirements.

    Certain specialisations also exist which may not be harmonised at EU level but which could be specific national specialisations not listed in Annex V of Directive 2005/36/EC. They should nevertheless be included here in the "specialist training (national training requirements)" category.

    The table below lists the training requirement(s) applicable to this profession:

    • Specialist nurse training (national training requirements)
    • Training of Nurse responsible for general care (Article 31 of Directive 2005/36/EC)
  • Translation(s)

    • Krankenschwester/Krankenpfleger (DE)
    • Infirmière (FR)
