Can somebody provide an example of a transcript or breakdown of training hours?? I would like to compare my training hours with an US trained nurse.
I have applied for a RN license in Florida as a foreign trained nurse. I meet all requirements the Fl.BON states, but, after evaluation by Silny & Associates, my training is considered the equivalent of a PN. The BON requires a minimum in training hours which I exceed aplenty.
So, I'm not sure what to think now.
Any help is greatly appreciated!

Without looking at my transcripts I can give you an idea of the hours I did in practice, hours of theory would take me a little longer to work out but for each speciality it would be at least 37.5 hours - I think.
Clinical practice hours
Acute med >1000 hours
Acute surg >1500 hours
Maternity 150 hours
Psych 300 hours
Paeds 300 hours
community 150 hours
I applied through Vermont and they aked for further breakdown so I ended going through CGFNS and wish I'd done this in the first place. It is expensive but you'll end up going through the process anyway for a Visa screen cert
