Hi there!I am posting this question for a friend of mine who is interested in transferring her nursing practice from the UK to the US (specifically, Illinois).The nurse education and practice system in the UK is a little different than here, and she is wondering if she'll have to take additional clinical hour courses to qualify to take the NCLEX. She has already submitted a transcript review to the US, to see if she's missing any courses, however she's heard this process could take up to a year. She is hoping to have her education completed by that time. (Since she will be moving here to get married by that time). She currently holds a RGN license in the UK, and is working as a registered general adult nurse in a PACU type unit. I am currently a working RN in Illinois, and when we compare our education the only difference is that she is missing clinical hours in OB & Psych...will she have to complete clinical hours in these areas before she qualifies to take the Illinois NCLEX?Is there anyone out there with any experience or advice to offer in this area?Thank you in advance for your time!
