State Diploma in Advanced Nursing Practice

Master's degree training, which prepares for the areas of intervention and activities of nurses working in advanced practice (IPA).

Aix-Marseille University was one of the first French universities accredited to deliver this state diploma in October 2018.

Advanced Practice Nursing (API)

The advanced practice nurse has broadened skills, which fall within the medical field, for the overall care of patients entrusted by a doctor.

This may involve the prescription of complementary tests (imaging and biology), renewal and adaptation of the dosage of certain treatments, and the performance of procedures without a medical prescription.

The IPA works as a team with other health professionals to organise the care pathway and ensure regular monitoring of pathologies; and requests the intervention of the doctor for cases that are outside his or her field of competence or if the patient's state of health deteriorates.

En effet, la pratique avancée permet de renforcer :

  • l’analyse, plus fine et plus précise
  • la méthodologie, plus rigoureuse
  • l’autonomie
  • la pratique, qui mobilisera plus d’outils
  • les choix, davantage argumentés vis-à-vis du médecin

Les IPA exercent dans une forme innovante de travail interprofessionnel, en équipe avec d’autres professionnels de santé. Ainsi des temps sont régulièrement consacrés aux échanges, à la coordination et à la concertation à propos des cas des patients.

Ils demandent l’intervention du médecin pour les cas qui sont hors de leur domaine de compétence ou si l’état de santé du patient se dégrade. De même, ils orientent les patients vers un autre professionnel de santé en fonction de leur état de santé.

How to access?

The training is accessible to holders of a State diploma in nursing (or a European equivalence), with at least 3 years of practice.
