hi

i am an ec rn grad. i took the rn nclex 4/15/09 and passed. i live in wa. and took the rn nclex for oregon because i thought i could get into a new grad program in oregon with my employer, who has several hospitals and clinic down there.

i was not able to do the new grad program in oregon, so i was wondering if anyone has been successful with wa and those 200 required preceptorship hours?

gail:d

Have you tried contacting EC? Not sure that they can help in WA but here in AZ they require a preceptorship before you graduate and they have all of the sites and contacts ready for you...you just have to pay $300 for it....yea, I know...more $$$ to EC...Good luck with your search...

I think AZ is the only state in which EC does any arranging of the preceptorship ... not sure why that is, exactly. It made me curious as to why they couldn't also negotiate something similar in states that require extra hours for endorsement. I'm sure there are plenty of peeps who'd pony up 300 clams if it meant a smoother ride to licensure in some states! :D
