    Well I was in the same shoes. I am from Pakistan and off course failed the first attemptthe first time though I worked very hard and thought that I will sure pass but seems it is money making. Anyway without waiting for time I couriered my documents again and sat for the very next exam and was able to get my registration in time so I did not had to work too hard as all was still fresh in my mind and you won't believe it, I got my result after full one year and that also after so many calls, e-mails, faxes.

    It is really terrible for us who want to migrate and have to go through so much hassle. Then it took another six months for me to get my Visa Screening certificate and finally am able to proceed for immigration, yet once I arrive US I will still have to appear for the State Exam. So guess got to keep studying appearing for exam a and so on but I suggest don't give up as I never gave up the day i got my result the first time after shedding few tears I couriered my application for reappearance and I did it, so will you.

    thank you Isabel for your thoughts. As my score was only 7 points under the minnimun required, I requested a rescoring service a month ago, and I still don't have the new scor. I think I would have to call again next week. the thing is that as my paperwork was so troubled, maybe I was scored wrong. After that I will reapply, maybe for March 2004. thank a lot.

    I could'n find any website regarding CGFNS study material. It's all about Kaplan, and other book.Which are very helpful for studying.
    You should buy some.In wich city will you show up?, on what date? I'm planning to go to NY on March 2004.
    We might meet there.GOOD LUCK!!!

    I got my score in the week of November, which was quite fast. I bought Mosby Review studybook, that's a good one. I took the test in Chigago, but I'll take the next test probably in London. I'll be in Europe for a few weeks. Good luck to you too!!

    Immigration tells me that anyone entering the USA wil have to present a CGFNS certificate even if their particular Board of Nursing doesn't require it, starting next year. So getting a license from a different state may not be of any help. I've had a license for 7 years and will still have to present the papers.

    I already have a greencard. And it doesn't matter where you take the CGFNS test (US or Europe). The CGFNS test in London is the same test as in Chicago, or the Phillipines, or.....
    I know it does matter in which state you take the NCLEX (to get the state license you need).

    I got married here in the US, which made it a lot easier to get the greencard (6 months). But otherwise, I would have taken the CGFNS exam in my own country, and would have applied for the workvisum to get into the States. That way I could have gone to the US and work as a nurse, and once in the US, I could have applied for adjustment of status/greencard. But that would be a longer process. Wanna do it fast? Get married! (...;-)
    By the way, it depends where you apply for the greencard: In alaska it takes 6 months, but in New york it can take close to 2 years. My favorite website: www.immihelp.com
    take care! nursestates@yahoo.com
