Taking NCLEX-PN in CA.. I Have a Prob on 54 hours Theory in Pharmacology

Posted

HI everyone. I am ready to submit my application for NCLEX PN here in California and I'm using Method 2. Do I need to submit a proof of 54 hours theory in Pharmacology? I have a copy of my Record of Nursing program other than the sealed envelope for personal record. but I have seen in my record, that it is only 51 hours of Theory. Will I encounter a problem for this? I am a BSN graduate from the Philippines. Hoping for your response. Thank you and Have a nice day.

I think you're using the wrong method....everyone I know used #3.

I see.. I will do the method 3, but my problem Is, in the record of Nursing Program, my school indicated only 51 Theory hours in Pharmacalogy. This is end of my nursing career. I can't even take LVN due to lack of pharmacology hours

Oh no, maybe you can try to enroll in an approved CA course as that's probably not in demand in the CA schools, but I don't know if it's just as hard or any one school allowing just to take a single course. I would wait till the decision is made from the BVNPT and go from there. Who knows maybe someone there might have some leniency,

I contacted my school regarding the theory hours of my pharmacology.. It was a typographical error.. she placed 51 instead of 54... it was a relief..
