“It’s good to recognize the specificity of intensive care nurses, which requires special technical skills, but it must be understood that all nurses are underpaid in France”, added Thierry Amouroux. “Despite the Ségur de la santé which has upgraded some of the caregivers, we remain [en France] far below the average nursing salary at European level, which leads to many departures of young people abroad “, he assured.
