I called the Board of Nursing in Calif, but have not received an answer. I am applying for a FNP license in Calif. My Advanced Pharmacology course was completed in Spring 2008. Does anyone know if the Calif State Board will accept this course for the Nurse Furnishing License or will they require me to repeat the Advanced Pharmacology course? I have not worked as an FNP. This is my 41st year in Nursing and I recently retired as a nursing professor and plan to work as an FNP. I have always remained active in the clinical area while teaching. I have not worked as an FNP, but completed the Post Master's Certificate 1.5 years ago. I know the Board has the 5 year rule for the Advanced Pharmacology course, but does that mean 60 months or can it be more than 60 months, but less than 6 years? Has anyone had a similiar situation that I am in? Also, does anyone have any recommendations regarding Advanced Phamacology courses to take on line that are accelerated that I can complete sooner than a semester. Any comments or suggestions will be greatly appreciated and welcomed.
