    can i apply for cgfns ces without taking the local board? i applied online but they were asking for my registration or license, sad part i dont have one. i just graduated and i didnt take the local board. it was last year that license is optional. i have no idea for this year. do you have any updates regarding this matter? thank you
    hi, it looks like you're also from the philippines. about your question, you won't be able to take the cgfns exam unless you have passed the local board. (for some reason, they need proof that you passed the local exam), you can either send a certificate which proves that you pass the board and tell them that your license will be "to follow".

    *modified: ooops i'm so sorry, i guess silverdragon gave you the link already. i didn't take the cgfns though, that was according to my friend who took the exam just this year.

    @ silverdragon:
    thank you so much for your info. it really helped me a lot. uhm...one last question, i recently downloaded the file "ap_licensure-rn-lpn.pdf" from the florida department of health site, and all the requirements for eligibility needed are there. but there is this page (page 15 to be exact) that asks for my social security number...this may sound pretty stupid but, are they asking for my ss number here in the philippines or there in florida? though it would be quite obvious that i don't have an ss number in florida yet.

    Hi. Im here in the US. They say that those who haven't take the CGFNS they can apply for CES (credential evaluation service) by the CGFNS. I was not talking about the CGFNS exam. Im sorry for the misunderstanding. I am just clarifying if I am eligible to apply for CES even without the local board.

    If you didnt take the CGFNS, did you take the local board?

    i would say you check the never registered/license. the letter could just be addressed to "whom it may concern"

    hi silverdragon. I would just like to ask how percent sure are you that the CGFNS CES will evalutate my transcript knowing that I'm not a registered nurse in the country of professional education. Because I called them last time, and a representative told me that i cannot apply CES if I'm not a registered nurse. Im confused

    there is nothing to indicate that your file will not be processed as long as you are truthfull and they are aware that you haven't taken local boards. There are many that haven't taken local board from the Phillipines and have ad CES done

    That's a good news. I'll be calling the CGFNS CES this monday for final confirmation. I really hope I can start filing my CES nextweek, I'm dying to do something for my career. I have wasted so much time already.

    Thank you and i'll keep you posted

    @ SilverDragon:
    Oh, thank you so much. Hmmm...I decided to apply my eligibility directly at Florida Board of Nursing.... would that be ok? or applying for CES at CGFNS would be better....

    @ Tweetheart:
    Oh, I'm sorry I got confused. It so happens I got a friend who's from a lower batch managed to process her CES at CGFNS...but since she's not a licensed RN yet, she said that she's not their priority...but I don't know if she got her eligibility though.

    According to Florida website they have to have your credential report before your application and give a list of accepted companies, therefore implies that they do not do their own evaluation. The reason I suggest CGFNS CES is that is required by a lot od states and if you move to another state that requires it it will delay your endorcemsnt

    Your welcome

    I know it is a little bit more but if you decide to move to another site and they need CES they may decide that they want to full course and if you hadn't done that one you would have to get it done. Full course is accepted by most if not all boards.

    Good luck
