    hi SUzzane, I applied to CA BON for an eligibility to take nclex last oct. 20, how long do you think will it take for my application to be approved? I already had an approval last 2003 but it expired after 2 years,so I applied again.I already got the visa, my agency wont deploy me yet because they said they are still waiting for the eligibility.thanks

    CABON generally takes 4 months. But I have a friend who applied in August 2005 and got approval in November last week. I think CABON is working faster these days. You may expect to get your eligibility very soon. why don't you call them and find out. They will tell you whether they are reviewing the applications they received in October or before that.

    hi everyone...this is my very first post....i would just like to ask suzanne if I have to wait for the result of my cvs report before sending an application to the NY BON. I have just sent my application to cgfns and im wondering if i can send my application to NY BON now to save time...oh and another thing, i read from another post that they will be sending their transcripts to NY BON since their school just received the cgfns request....do we have to follow this up ourselves or will we just wait for confirmation thru email that cgfns has received all the credentials? thanks so much in advance and this site has been really helpful especially these times when you are contemplating on what's the next step to take

    You can definitely send the application on to NY now, I usually recommend to send all three at the same time, including the application for the VSC, if the nurse can afford to do it like that. You can watch the website, give it about two months, and if nothing is there, then contact them via phone for follow-up.

    Definitely not courier mail, unless you ask for it and pay for it. Just standard air-mail. But remember as soon as you have the actual license number, you can endorse, or do whatever with it. They also participate in quick results from Pearson-Vue. So, 48 hours later you will have your results.

    Hi! I am also going to NY and had a situation with my TOR (credentials verification). It took me 7 long months to go, follow up, e-mail, mail thru fedex in my school and the CGFNS. According to CGFNS they mailed the verification form but according to the scholl they did not receive any. The good news is that after 7 months, my school finally was able to receive and send back the "verification form" to CG. I already have my visa and will be flying to NY next month.
    However i will also be waiting for the NY verification so that i can get my limited permit. I also have friends who have the same experience.
    I just hope that we will all get our Verifications approved ii time.

    thanks suzanne, you've been a great help I hope the CVS wont take that long...ill try to send my application to the NY BON first then wait for my TOEFL results before i apply for the visa screen.

    The problem looks like it was with your school, not CGFNS. CGFNS is required to send all documents that they have received onto NY in six months, even if the file is not completed. If NY is having to wait for the translation, it means that your school did not return the documents before the deadline.

    If they have received everything on time, it usually takes only about four months for you to get approval.
    This is why i decided to go for CES (for Illinois) instead of CVS for NY. Since i went to different schools and hold diff licenses, theres a big possibility that one of these schools will not act on one, or maybe even more, of the credentials requested by CGFNS to be verified. Remember, in CVS, it is CGFNS who will mail the school whereas in CES, we do it, hence we can personally follow up the status of our papers. Besides, you can use the CVS only for NY while there are at least 5 states requiring CES.

    But the biggest issue is that Illinois will not issue a license without a SSN# and that is a big issue for most. You cannot endorse without the actual license number, and that will not get issued until you have a SSN#, which is issued once you arrive in the US. That is the major point of going the route of NY for initial licensure.

    I am a nurse from the Philippines. I am initially licensed here in the states in New Mexico then Connecticut. I got married 7 months ago and decided to move to NY. I left my old job in Connecticut and applied for my CVS-NY 6 months ago but still I can't see light at the end of the tunnel. All my documents were received by CGFNS but I found out recently that they only open documents they received through mail only after 6 weeks from receiving it. No wonder it takes forever. So here I am now newly wed and jobless. Going back to Connecticut is one of the few options I have but definitely not what I initially planned to do.

    I wish my story will educate foreign nurses wishing to relocate in NY.
