Californian midwives - need advice!!

Posted

Specializes in oncology/respiratory/emergency. Has 17 years experience.

I am an Australian RN with over 16 years exp. and now live in southern california with a valid working visa. I need to make up prac/theory hours in OBS to get my CA licence about 80/40hrs approx. Does anyone have any ideas or if any hospitals offer any courses etc. that is recognised by the CA board? I am so keen to work over here but need to get this done before i can get licenced... it is really frustrating!

thanks in advance for any advice.

To get your ATT, be able to sit for NCLEX and then recive your RN licence in CA all hours must be covered on a official school transcript. Hospital courses / work experience will not be accepted by the BON.

Suzanne, one of the moderators in the international forum is an expert and might be able to give you more information (possible schools).

Ps. If you are talking about a midwife licence, just ignore my post and do a search since I know it has been discussed before.
