    Thanks Karen!
    You are right it is very difficult to find a school offering only this single course. I will try this, thank you!

    Hi!
    Tina K , no unfortunately I cannot go there just like that, I live in New York City. I considered Beth Israel Nursing School in New York and Three Rivers Community College in Stamford, Connecticut. I can only start there in January which will be probably too late for me because I will be seven months pregnant by then I guess I have to wait Thanks anyway

    MattyUK: I didn't have enough hours in psychiatric nursing , theory and clinical in my nursing course in Austria, therefore I have to do this one subject course in psychiatric nursing again, including the clinical. I know that the second year is the hardest in nursing school becuase you are right in the middle in the program but hang in there, I am sure you will make a great nurse and if you want to go to America as a nurse you can do it, you just need a little patience Good luck to you!

    Hi TinaK,
    The evaluation process ended with the Board of Nursing telling me that to qualify for the NCLEX exam I need to do this one course.

    Hi!
    I am a nurse from Austria trying to get my RN license here in New York. I am looking for other european nurses especially from Germany and Austria who had to do additional courses like me (Psychiatric Nursing, theory and clinical) and can give me advice on what to do now. I am having a really hard time right now finding an university that offers me this one single course and it is very hard to find other nurses from Europe having to deal with the same stuff basically. I am happy about any replies and advice. Thank you

    Hi!
    I did my nursing program in Europe and try to get my license as a RN here in the USA now. The Board of Nursing requires me now to do one additional course in Psychiatric nursing, theory and clinical to be able to do my NCLEX exam and get my license. Does anyone know an university here in New Jersey offering this one single course?
    Thank you

    Hi TinaK!
    I called LangaraCollege and got all the information, I know it is not entirely long distance and I explained the lady from the Board of Nursing exactly that I would go there for the clinical. She still told me that for the theoretical component they don't permit it because I would study at home and they require you to be there at the university for the theoretical course too.
    She told me that they don't allow that students from California even so I don't know... Anyway I cannot do anything expect wait again like always I guess. I will continue my search on universities in New York.

    Hey hun

    Do you realise that the Langara college course , is not solely long distance?? its only the Theoretical component that is the distance learning part...to get your hours in the clinical side of psychiatry, you will have to go to vancouver and actually stay there for 3-4 weeks to do your clinical aspect of it, its not just a theory course it is both theory and practice, the california board probably thought it was just theory based which is why they said no....you should really ring up langara and find out everything first

    Hi TinaK,
    I just called the Board of Registered Nursing in California and talked to the responsible person for my case and she told me that they do not accept long distance courses like that at Langara College. I am soo dissappointed. I just don't know what to do, I cannot find any place in New York and the only one that I found is Beth Israel Nursing School in New YOrk and they can only take me eventually for January and that is still 4 months! Then I will be seven months pregnant. I am sorry I am just so down, sometimes I really feel like giving up. I mean these people just give you just such a hard time.. Please please doesn't anyone now a place in New York for Psychiatric Nursing that offer this one single course? Thank you

    Hello tina

    I'm so glad you rang to the right place! yes they still are doing the course,and Langara's courses at the college are an approved nursing school, the board of bc registration approve it, so you will be safe there when are you applying??

    I am hoping to start taking the theory 6 months after i have my first nursing job over here as need to save up the money!

    I am a RN nurse from Austria , did my course there and try to get my license now for California. They told me that I need to do the clinical and theory in Psychiatric Nursing although I had the course but the problem was it was a kind of Sub-subject in specific pathology but I had the theory. The school only has the name "Specific Pathology" written in my transcript with the number of hourse not mentioning the name Psychiatric nursing. Anyway I know that it is justified for the clinical because I really didn't do that one in this specific subject. Now it is a kind of a struggle to find a school in New York (where I live now) which offers this single course and I only found a couple of distance programs in Canada up to now which would require me to travel there. Does anyone have any advise on this? Thank you

    California will recognize any course done in Canada as long as they are in an approved school of nursing.

    Hi TinaK!
    I guess my husband maybe just called at the wrong place because we used the general number for the Langara College. I called there with the number you posted with the Homepage there and they told me they would do the course only that they were not sure whether the US would approve the course cause it is in Canada. Do you know anything about it? I have to call the Board of Nursing in California (where I applied) anyway to find out but just ask..Thanks again for your big help

    Hello all

    I have been reading many of the posts on here about adult nurses who want to go work in the usa, but who are having difficulty because they lack hours in certain areas of nursing.

    There is a place called Langara College in vancouver canada, it has an excellant course specifically for those nurses who need to make up the hours, this may be a bit long winded way around but it can get you what you need... it lets you take mini courses in paeds , obstetrics and mental health, each course has theory and clinical components, you can take the theory part of each course at home via distance learning and then once you have done all your theory you will sit an exam in your home country, upon passing they will let you proceed to go ahead with the clinical part of the course in which you will have to go spend approx 3 weeks in the designated clinical areas, to achieve the clinical hours you need, the clinical aspect is done in vancouver! after this course you will have the required hours you need to be able to register as a nurse in vancouver.... this is the way i am planning on doing it, as I have family in vancouver so i do not mind working there for a short while, the advantage is then i will have the required hours for applying to do the NCLEX .... Anyway I just thought I would share this info with those who wishto know where to make up hours from...because I can tell you now its going to be very hard trying to find a place in the UK! .. if anyone wants more information, please contact me via a pm, or here.


    Hope this helps!

    Hi!
    Really??? Oh my, well actually my husband called and he asked for the Mental Health course or Psychiatric nurse for the nursing program (he is a LPN nurse himself and I hate talking on the phone) and they told him it was not running at the moment. But I will call there again definitely...
    Thank you
