Holding a green card means that you do not need to go thru any of the processing associated with immigration, but that is all that is affected. Having a green card does not make any changes what is needed for licensing, and this is where CGFNS comes in. FL BON actually requires a credentials eval for all that have trained out of the US, would recommend that you use CGFNS for the CES and not the others as this one is accepted by all 50 states as well as most universities if you wish to continue on with your training.
Immigration and licensure are two very distinct items and are not related. Even if you hold a US passport, the CES is going to need to be done. Even if you grew up in the US and then went abroad for nursing school
, the same requirements apply.
1. You need to complete the CES application and have the required documents sent to the BON.
2. Apply for licensure to the FL BON and please do them in this order.
You are not required to write the CGFNS exam or complete the VSC, but you must go thru the credentials eval. Much has already been written on what needs to be done so no reason to list it all here again. You can also check out the website for FL BON as they will give you more specifics.
Best of luck to you.
