    I have a question about the institutions I have attended. I don't know what to put under name of diploma or certificate it its original language.

    Uhmm...also, let me verify this since I'm a little confused:

    Primary: elementary
    Intermediate: high school
    Secondary: college?

    I'm sorry i'm not familiar with these terms. We use elementary, high school and college here in the Philippines. Thank You in advance.

    Things do differ. Here in the UK we generally dont have Intermediate our schooling usually is Primary and Secondary Secondary usually takes age 11 upwards. College is usually from age 16 upwards. For institutes I just named them.

    Primary usually means first school

    Last week, August 28th? Did you actually have a Credentials Eval called the CES submitted as well? FL will not do one thing with your application until they have the CES, if you attended shcool in another country. Do nto remember where you trained, just remember the name.

    Florida takes several months go give authorization, they are not fast. And expect a few weeks before you will get a confirmation from them.
    I am a fresh foregin graduate, Do I need to take my NLE in order to avail of the CES service?

    This is an old thread but if the state requires NLE then it is required for CGFNS CES

    Just to throw a few more things into the pot here:

    Florida is now only keeping applications valid for one year from the time that you apply for licensure. This means that after one year if you do not provide them with a SSN#, your file is going to be destroyed.

    They also will not permit a foreign-trained nurse to endorse to there if they do not have at least two years of experience in the state where they first got licensed in the US.

    They have made significant changes to their requirements in the past month or two, I would suggest having a very good read on things before doing anything with Florida at this time.

    I just downloaded the application form for florida. Is this the same application form also for foreign graduates? there are some items there that are only for us residents, like if i am able to volunteer for disaster. especially the applicant background. what name did i first use when i was first licensed? but i am not licensed yet, which explains my application. list all nursing licenses, but i haven't taken the nle yet. should i just leave all the n/a stuff blank?

    or does this mean that florida requires an nle/for a philippine nursing license?

    Depends on what they put in the letter to you; not sure what the time frame was back then, but now for the new applicants, it is only one year.

    Best thing to do is check directly with them.

    To be a volunteer for a disaster you need a US license and current working experience. During Hurricane Katrina the state of LA turned away qualified professionals. My home state I registered, they verified my license and employment. I also had to complete several courses, I was also told that I may have to work below my professional level ( do whatever the need is). I know this won't qualify as "RN" experience, but for me that is a non issue since I have over 30years experience.
