Florida Board of Nursing

  1. 0
    hi... I applied to take the NCLEX exam; I have the BSN from a foreign country. I did everything they needed in order to be considered and be able to take the NCLEX including: proof of english competency, evaluation of education credentials from a recognized and certified agency, etc.

    I just received a letter saying that i'm lacking clinical hours in one area, they didn't specify how many hours they required in the area and how many I do have.

    They want me to go to a meeting but I just want to know if anyone here have had the same issue, and what the meeting is about.... What do they do in these type of meetings??

    Thanx in advance...

    Hi, I'm applying to Florida board of nursing too. May i know what country did you take your nursing course? I'm from the Philippines and I saw on my CES report that I lack 8 clinical hours from surgical area.. Did you attend the meeting already? How did it go? Did they give you eligibility? Hope it went well. Thanks.

    I am so sorry i didnt reply sooner!! :-( , Nerie my I did my BSN in Puerto Rico, I didnt have to go to the meeting because I contacted florida board of nursing asking for my lacking of hours and it was a drastic lack of hours and I got suspicious so, I contacted my college and asked them to review my case again and see if they made a mistake, and, Thank God, they found they made a mistake when reporting surgical and medicine nursing so, they completed the chart again and sent a letter to the agency I was doing all the process thru and the agency sent all the documents again to the Florida Board of Nursing with the letter my college sent from Puerto Rico... and the Board of Nursing contacted me a couple of days before the meeting saying that I dont have to attend the meeting and that I was able to take the NCLEX... so, I will take it this next wednesday 24....
