Please Help!

Posted

Hi,

I'm working on my RN licensure applications via CGFNS (filling out sample versions) of CES professional report since I'm applying to Virginia. My mind is going insane trying to figure out if I have sufficient enough theoretical hours in obstetrics/maternity care nursing + pediatric nursing. What's the general rule of thumb regarding the amount of theoretical hours the CGFNS accepts in these areas?? Pleaseee help, anyone! I need to know so that all of this isn't in vain just because I lack two or three theoretical hours...

Each state is different but I met 2 states with approx 75 hours clinical and 75 hours theory in a couple of the areas.

Thank you so much silverdragon!

When I contacted Virginia's BON, I was informed they require a total of 500 clinical hours in all areas and a minimum of 8 hours in obs/maternity and pediatrics... but ofc I would have to complete many more hours than the bare minimum. The BON told me they are not authorized to comment on the amount of theoretical hours they require in certain areas since it's CGFNS that decides but I do know all theoretical hours have to concur with Virginia's board of higher education but I can't seem to find any information on theoretical hours in these areas, I've tried looking for program curriculums but I don't know if that helped either. Could you please point me in the right direction... any suggestions on where I can find state specific requirements for theoretical hours?
