i threw this question to some nursing students sitting with me. the following was their answer:

assuming she hasn't taken any other hormones (regular birth control) she needs to take the second pill ASAP. the sooner the better.

and my addendum: follow up with a pregnancy test 10 days from now to make sure it worked.

Correlation does not equal causation.
