    I mean after they have everything - they advised me to have CGFNS forward the copy of the CES and the Education and Licensure verifications rather than getting more from the schools, so they already have that, then sent the application + photo + fee to Vermont. I wonder from when they receive it how long it takes?

    hi! Are your friends planning to work in new mexico also? Or they're just using it as a stepping stone to work in another state?

    It all depends on what state you applied to. CA BON may take long before it makes you eligible to sit for the NCLEX. I know of someone who applied to VT BON on the other hand and got his ATT in four months. And according to what others say, NM BON has a maximum of three months for processing applications.

    It took Vermont 6 weeks to get my ATT back to me in the UK once they had received my transcripts. I think that was pretty good.

    Hi, I applied to Micigan BON. Couple of my colleagues had applied and received their approvals in about a month and half. Foreign educated nurses need to be certified by CGFNS and have to send in their CGFNS CP verification from CGFNS. This service costs 75$. Once an application is received (with a fee of 48$) by Michigan BON, an application no. is issued and mailed after 2 weeks of receipt of application. NO SSN#, finger printing or min. years of exp (as required by Vermont) required. The applicant can then check the status of their application on the BON web-site.

    You don't need a CES from CGFNS for Vermont, they ask for your transcripts to be sent to them direct from your nursing school.

    You will eventually need your VisaScreen from CGFNS but at least going through Vermont means you only have to deal with them once!

    Vermont don't have fingerprinting but they do have a minimum hours requirement, that's true. It's something like 400 hrs in the last 2 years or 900 in the last 5 years, if my memory serves me correctly. Anyhow, it's sounds a lot but it isn't really. It's equivalent to 16.7 hours a month over the 2 years or 15 hours a month over the 5 years!

    Do you mean that the school and not the applicant is the one who will send all the requirements needed for the Application for Licensure in Vermont? or the applicant can still send the requirements as long as he obtains the transcript of records?

    what do you mean by this? do you mean that in order to receive ATT from Vermont, you have to work 400 hrs in the last 2 years or 900 hrs in the last 5 years as a REGISTERED NURSE? What if you are just a new graduate? Was your hospital experience as a student nurse enough for this requirement?

    I know Vermont don't require CES, but the state I am planning to endorse to does, so I had it done already. I wanted to just have CGFNS fwd this and the license/education verifications so I didn't have to get my schools to do it all again. VT said this was acceptable.

    Vermont have added a statement on their website that receipt of ATT will take 3-4 months from when everything is received!!! How can it take that long? Why don't they hire more staff!!??

    I heard on the grape vine that the person who normally deals with the ATT is/has been off sick. I think word got out that they were fast at processing & they have now become overwhelmed! oh well - guess you'll have to go with one of the other suggestions!
