    Hi jeanifer67! Ive been meaning to save up money to make international calls for BON in CT and when I saw ur frm CT, I was just wondering, maybe you could help me on my query. I am doing my own research under BON in CT and like you, i am a foreign trained nurse. I also carry a SSN. I have read that foreign- trained nurses need to obtain a VERIFICATION OF COMPLETION of International Certification Program. It also states there that CGFNS exam is one of the steps. To my knowledge, this exam is usually instructed for those who needs a Visa for work. Since I do have a SSN, do I still need to take the CGFNS exam for my CT application to be approved? I just wanna make sure that Im understanding the BON CT website accordingly Thanks for your time and any info would help Sincerely, Issa
