    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.
    What do you mean when you say "certified by CGFNS"? Is it the 3-part program which includes the credentials review, CGFNS exam and english exam? In case you were made eligible to sit for the NCLEX by the Michigan BON and passed it, does Michigan BON give you a hard license/card that you can endorse to other state later on?

    Yes, I heard that too about Patty being off sick.

    Still, it would seem a fairly basic method of improving the nurse shortage if they hired sufficient people to cover their workload...

    What do you mean, take another suggestion? I have already completed all the paperwork for Vermont, and got the money order for $150US and sent off the application... it's just a matter of waiting and hoping my new job doesn't disappear, I guess!

    Can you apply for initial licensure by examination in 2 states and then go with whichever comes through first?

    i used my related learning experience to fill up the experience being required in the form of vermont.. this was suggested by the staff also of vermont.... so in short.. technically, there is no required experience also in vermont...

    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!

    would it be faster if i myself deliver my application in sacramento? i mean all the requirements needed? even the requirements needed to be mailed by the school??

    If the instructions say that a certain document must be mailed directly by the school, then it has to be that way. But for other matters, like your application form and payment for instance, you could bring it to their office provided they entertain walk-in applicants.

    hi. i applied for registration in california. took 4 mos to receive my eligibility. att only takes a minute if u register online. some of my friends who also applied for cali licensure got their eligibility in 2 1/2 mos. i have extra fingerprint cards, btw.

    vermont used to be the fastest to process applications, but i heard its now new mexico. u might wanna try checking their website. a lot of information is available online. if u r rili interested, u might wanna check them out --- particularly the FAQs (frequently asked questions).

    also, u can apply in cali even without SSN (since ure not a US citizen). i think this applies to other states as well.

    you can apply to any state for licensure, the issue is whether or not they will issue you a hard license without a ssn#. california will not.

    and just because a state is faster, that means absolutely nothing if you are not going to work there. you still will need to go thru the endorsement process for any other state to work there.

    and there is a retrogression coming, so time is really irrelavent at this point.

    and you also did not take the exam in june..........that has changed things for everyone.

    You do realize this thread hasn't been active since 2006!
    A lot has changed since then, so there may be more recent threads that address these issues...just a thought.
