Clinical hours required in California?

  1. 0
    Hi all!

    I looked all over the CA BSN website and couldn't find this, so if I'm asking an obvious question: sorry!

    Does anyone know how many clinical hours are required by the BSN to be okayed to take the NCLEX? I know they require a certain amount of hours in medical, surgical, obstetrics, etc. but I couldn't find anywhere how many hours specifically in each section.

    Graduation from an accredited nursing school approved by the state of CA will ensure the required number of hours. At one time this question came up for me, but I am not quite sure where, I believe it is listed in the BRN nursing practice act under the section explaining the 30 unit option for LVNs to be able to sit for the Boards. I believe the number of hours in total is something like 850, but I am not certain. Look at the CA BRN RN nurse practice act, I believe the answer is in there.
