Nursing education requirements
- 0Jun 8, '12 by am312Hi,
I would like to know what was the hours we have suppose to have in our education to be eliigible to the NCLEX RN? And I can't find the hours I am suppose to have in each specialty.
For instance, I know that French nurses don't have enough hours in obstetrics. But I don't know exactly how many.
Plus, when we miss hours in each specialty, do we have to go back to school or can we just go pratice in that area to complete our education?

Each state has its own requirements regarding education and eligibility; although there is a great deal of basic similarity, there are differences, so the VA BON would be your best source of info.
