    Objective

    Training aims

    The purpose of the training is to train a nurse anesthetist, that is to say, a responsible and autonomous nurse, particularly competent in the field of anesthesia care, this field including the pre, per and post-interventional and emergency care and resuscitation.

    training duration

    The IADE lasts 24 months divided into 4 semesters. It takes place alternating between internship locations and theoretical training times within the school.

    Cost

    Funding

    School integrated into a health training center…

    The nurse anesthetist school is part of a training center where are grouped:

    • initial training : nurse, paramedic, nursing assistant, medical electroradiology technician
    • specialty training : operating room nurse, childcare worker
    • the training of health managers
    • medical training : medicine, pharmacy, maieutics, speech therapy

    The grouping of these training courses on a single site makes it possible to develop shared and innovative educational activities: lessons and multi-professional internships.

    The building is accessible to people with disabilities. A disability adviser is in contact with all the training structures. The students concerned can contact her via the school secretariat.

    Support and tutoring system

    Support for students revolves around the reflective analysis of learning situations allowing the implementation of transposable and therefore integrated skills.

    By associating reflective practice with the analysis of practices, the IADE student questions himself, and works on the co-construction of the meaning given to the practice and/or the improvement of professional techniques. The training managers therefore seek to mobilize the student's capacities for analysis, self-assessment and constructive criticism.

    Support is both individual and collective for the professional research dissertation and begins from the 1st year of the Master's degree.

    Pedagogical support is organized throughout the training by the teaching team. Each student benefits from at least one internship supervision during semesters 2 and 3 of the training.

    During the training, the pedagogical follow-up is also individual and collective. They can be organized on a regular basis according to the stages of training and at the request of the student or the referent trainer.

    Training

    Innovative teaching methods

    The CHU Caen Normandie IADE school offers many simulated activities within the NORSIMS Health Simulation Center . They mainly break down into 2 types:

    • procedural simulation, which consists of learning and repeating a specific procedure;
    • high-fidelity simulation, which involves using a high-fidelity dummy to recreate emergency situations in a reconstituted work environment (operating theatre, recovery room, out-of-hospital) .

    IADE students from Caen Normandy University Hospital have the opportunity to develop healthcare research. Indeed, many of them are part of an approach inspired by biomedical sciences. This method usually involves the development of a research protocol validated by the committee for the protection of people enrolling in a Hospital Nursing and Paramedical Research Program.

    Continuous assessment system

    The validation of the training is based on a continuous evaluation system. Each validation of teaching unit and each internship is valued by one or more European Credits ( ECTS ):

    • 30 ECTS for teaching units per year of training,
    • 30 ECTS for practical internship training per year of training.

    Assessment methods: Individual or collective

    Online homework submissions, homework on the table, oral presentations of work, simulated situations, clinical situation analysis work.

    Diploma

    Graduation

    The State Diploma is acquired by obtaining 120 ECTS corresponding to the acquisition of the 7 skills of the reference system. The validation of these teaching units is attested by a half-yearly jury.

    The Regional Directorate for the Economy, Employment, Labor and Solidarity ( DREETS ) guarantees the certification of the State Diploma.

    Journey

    Continuation of courses and outlets
