Hoping to find someone who knows anything about these courses that are provided in the US.
Just got back from the Florida Board of Nursing monthly board meeting where my application was considered. I am a UK trained nurse and do not have obstetrics, paeds and psychiatry clinical and theory hours but they did not deny my application, instead have allowed me to take a remedial course within 1 year and then they will pass my application.
Supposedly these courses are designed for people who fail the NCLEX 3 times. I am happy that they have given me this opportunity but I have no idea how I am gonna manage to carry out the clinicals, I work full time and can't afford to quit my job to go over there to go on placements. I am a US citizen so I could easily move back but I don't want to risk my nursing career which comes first.
Anyone who has done or heard of foreign trained nurses doing these remedial courses, some advice would be much appreciated.

Hi - I know this was posted some time ago and not sure if you even come in to check mail. Fingers crossed!!
I am in similar position that you were. I have been invited 6 August to attend FL BON meeting in Miami. I trained in UK - missing theory paeds hours only in transcribed details - planning to attend the meeting so that I can answer any questions.
Also checked out courses local to FL home address - how did you get on with your process in the end. and how scarey was the BON meeting to attend.???
