I have a 3½ year bachelor in Nursing (just graduated) and I would like to come to USA and work. Does anyone know how many hours theory and clinic practice is required for the CGFNS?
The application form lists a bunch of different fields/categories, but I can find no guidelines anywhere how many hours specifically of each category is required. I tried calling the CGFNS but they couldn't (or wouldn't) answer.
(as an aside, they list things like infant care, which we have had very little off, but other things we've had aren't mentioned at all in the categories.)
Hope someone can help me out!
Also, is it an advantage to try and get licensed in one of the states in the shared nursing license program (compact states), or is that one much harder to obtain?
Thanks for your time! :-)
