University of the Philippines College of Nursing grads in Florida?

  1. Is there any graduate from UPCN that got his/her license here in Florida? I have a question regarding the evaluation of our curriculum.

    The Florida BON found out that our curriculum lacks several theory hours on medical, obstetrical and psych nursing (about 31 hours deficient). However, they also found out the the clinical hours are excessive (about 200 hours in excess). Did anyone else had/have this problem? what did you do? what happened to your application? thanks!

    This problem is not only for UPCN graduates. In fact anyone who is a graduate from the Philippines has the same problem. Look at the Philippines section for more info.

    The board approved my application. Probably due to excess hours.
