Default ED uk nurse to California

Hi everyone! Can anyone offer some advice on what uk courses they have taken to complete the US requirements in obs/gynae/ paeds etc training that uk universities don’t teach? Also I’ve read we need to do practical sessions too? Is that true and where have you done it/ how many hours? Many thanks ))

Your transcripts require both clinical and theory hours in Paeds, Obstetrics, Adult and Mental Health. Usually clinical has to be done at the same time. I had just over 75 hours each in Mental Health and Obstetrics and well over hours in Adult and Paeds and managed to register in 2 states before settling in Canada. There are rumours of a school in the UK offering the make up hours but you may need to check that the course will be accepted by the state. Also be aware CA is one of the hardest states to get registered in and unless you have a US SSN you can’t apply there until in the US with a valid visa allowing you to live and work and can apply for a SSN

i Trained back in the 80’s and did an 8 week placement in Paeds so actually did well with clinical and we did 2 weeks of theory in school prior placement. I qualified in 88 as a Enrolled Nurse and bridge to RN in 97 and only had to do Obstetrics and Mental Health and requirements more than met the 2 states

I actually went from the UK to California in the late 80’s. I was recruited by a nursing agency in the UK. They did all the paperwork and flew us out to CA for a 2 week speed course before we sat the CA boards. When I went out to CA the company paid for my H1 visa flight and accommodation and of course I had a job with a hospital.
I renewed by CA license every 2 years. After a few years I got my green card then I left the company and found my own job apartment and eventually became a citizen. I now live in Florida and have a FL license ( I never renewed my CA license ) it’s cheaper to live in a Florida
i am now looking to go back to the UK but the revalidation process is crazy as you have to know a UK nurse who is active on the registry.
I wish you luck in your quest to be state side.
