Making up hours

  1. Hi ya everyone, i just wanted to know if everyone has found it easy to make up their hours to go over to the usa, im still a student and im trying to get all my hours done now so im not faffing about afterwards but my uni are making such a big deal out of it, its giving me a headache arrrrrrgh!! OGP said that i need to have the following
    Medicine 60 Practical/ 20 Theory
    The same for surgery, pediatrics, obstetrics, psychiatry.
    I think its the psychiatry one thats going to cause me a problem as i think i will have all the others..they are on about sending me to broadmoor which im a bit scared about. If not ill have to do it after im qualified..

    you can make up hours after you qualify, but they must be traceable through some form of official document, like the transcripts that can be obtained from your university, so be caerful, just going to work somewhere will not be enough, it would be much better to get it done during your training.
    good luck

    try a search on this forum as this came up last year and there was a few with hours short, you can do it in the US as a guest student and I believe there is a place in Canada

    I think midwifery will be more of a problem because some of the midwifery dept are struggling to mentor the midwifery students. I know where I worked they banned generasl student nurses from doing the practical side because they just couldnt manage them anymore. Staffing problems and all that.
