0Sep 5, '05 by suzanne4Quote from himdaleJust for a little update, there is now only one state in the US that requires the CGFNS exam for a foreign nurse, only exemption is five years of work experience in the US. Illinois had a requirement of the exam unless the nurse had two years of experience in the US, that has just been changed where the CGFNS exam is no longer needed, only the CES.Hi Rn Faith,
Suzanne and I would have different views...but i always advise nurses to get a CGFNS Cert, pass English Exams, apply for I-140 Employment Based Immigrant Petititon and apply for the Visa Screen.
Wait for a little while, when you get your approved petition get NCLEX...
Much safer to posses a CGFNS certificate if you are a foreign nurse...Even Cali does not require CGFNS you still need to have an SSN to get your hard license...
And if sometime you changed your mind about the State in which you want to work...you will be safe if you have a CGFNS...
There are no shortcuts in obtaining a Green Card....always remember that...
Two years ago, I would have agreed with the need to have the CGFNS Certificate, but not anymore. There just isn't any reason to have it anymore.
But I agree 100% with what Dale says about immigration. And please do not even consider coming to the US as soon as you graduate............you will have issues with immigration and will not have time to get approval to even sit for the NCLEX in that time frame. Please take the time to do things the legal way. There are no shortcuts.............

Do you think that we should close this thread since the retrogression has been lifted and the posts are no longer applying to the original post?
Suggest we do since the questions being posted here are not anymore related to the title of the thread. For related inquiries, it can be answered by other threads.
