We are so hopeful that our BON will offer alternatives for clinical hours since our sites are closed to us. Per our NPA, LPN students can't use simulation as an alternative although RN students can. Our seniors are scheduled to graduate in mid-April and at this rate they will not have the number of clinical hours required to sit for boards. Has your state's BON offered alternatives?

I copy/pasted from the TX BON. It's a waiver.

"Prior to this waiver, these rules limited clinical learning experiences for vocational nursing and professional/registered nursing students to 50% simulation activities in each clinical course. The granted waiver now allows students in their final year of a nursing education program to meet clinical learning objectives by exceeding the 50% limit on simulated clinical learning experiences."
