First of all, I really hope Silverdragon reads this and gives me insight.
I have sent out my application as well as all of my paperwork to the NMC for my nursing license, except my training form. I was trained in the US at an accredited University and received my bachelor degree, which consisted of three full years of nursing training and one year of prerequisites.
I have been working for two years as a theatre nurse.
I passed my IELTS with 9's acrossed the board.
I have had my licensure body fill out the paper and mailed it.
The two references are filled out and mailed.
In other words, I fulfill all the requirements of licensure in the UK thus far.
My concern is: when the dean of my university took my transcripts, she needed to convert the credit hours to actual hours. The clinical hours that she calculated up was in the six hundreds. The NMC suggests approximately two thousand hours for clinical time.
How can there be such a difference?
Will this affect my ability to be licensed in the uk?
I am frustrated that with all of the work and money I've spent on this, that it may not come to fruition. In addition, I am moving to the UK next April regardless of the decision of the NMC, as I will be going on a spousal visa. But I am also aware that there is no more clinical training hours that I could have possibly taken to add up to their suggestion.
Am I missing something?
Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
