Hours required to keep registration active?

Posted

Specializes in Cath lab, acute, community. Has 11 years experience.

A friend from uni said that upon graduation, a nurse must do a certain amount of nursing hours in a year to be eligible for renewing their registration. Is this correct? Because I was thinking, upon finishing nursing and getting my registration, that I will continue in my current non-nursing job for a year and then commence nursing in a new grad program in the new year (2013)?

Any insight would be appreciated. Thanks lovelies. :)
