5 years validation of nursing practice

Posted

Hi,

I never practice nursing since i graduated five years ago. Is there a Board of Nursing that doesn't require 5 years validation of practice?

I hope not! it is unrealistic to expect that anyone who graduated 5 years ago and never practiced nursing is qualified to provide safe patient care, maybe you can look into taking a refresher program?

I would take the advise of dishes. You really don't want to even attempt to practice nursing especially since you've never worked as one before. You have a lot to learn since nursing has evolved so much since then. Good Luck
