I'm and Lpn with several years experance. I work with a CNA who is from another country. She claims in her country she was a nurse and is studing to challenge the RN boards. Not to sound deragitory, but how can she verify her training? What about all this "advanced learning"? Honestly, how much did she work with cutting edge tech, ICU, vented pts and with an understanding of blood gases in a third world country? Why is it she can come from overseas, with no way to verify the quality of her education and get the chance to challange the NCLEX and I'd have to take 3 more semesters of classes and clinicals (not to mention English Comp. 2!! ) to be given the same chance? :angryfire If you know the legal reasons for it, or a way to get this HUGE loophole to work for me (Say, a vacation overseas...
) Let me know!
