    Hi Katerynam,


    Where are you from? What equivalence did you get (and how many years of study?) I'm an international nurse too, and waiting for my CES report.

    There have been posts here, the board may recommend you make up the hours and suggest programs to attend.

    Do they took some units to fill-in the lacking number of hours?

    Seems like a responsible suggestion from the Board of Nursing.
