PHN Certification in California requirements

  1. Hi and good day, I am new to posting on a topic and hopefully any feedback would be helpful. I am an Rn working here in CA and is applying to have my PHN certificate thru the Board of Registered Nursing. Since I am a foreign grad, they have given me names of homestudy schools on where I can enroll to meet the requirements of PHN here in CA. I have already submitted to them my application, transcript and Mandatory Child Abuse Couse Certificate but they are still requiring me some more documents. Has anyone had this same situation? Thanks!

    Hi purpe_candyzz.. Im also a foreign grad, planning to get my phn certificate.. Where did you get the mandatory child abuse course?

    Hi arcelyn0312...i got it at Gannett Education and the course is titled: How Nurses Can Help Prevent Child Abuse and it's 7 hours which fulfills the requirement they want. Just search for Gannett Education at Google and it will show...I still have about two more courses that the board wants me to take because I am a foreign grad...I have heard they are very strict in certifying PHNs now (unlike before) which is why I am hoping they would issue me one but if not, it's okay. But I won't lose hope Good luck to us both
