    I took the CGFNS in Chicago last week. Can anyone tell me if the CGFNS put your results online? I found it quicker to check my staus online as any letters took two weeks (and I only live in Michigan!!!)

    What is the quickest way to get your results. I know when my children took ACT and SATs they could pay to get their results early. Anyone know if this is possible with CGFNS. I really did have a BAD time getting through the CGFNS process and I trained in the UK. What a fuss!!!

    Scores will be available on-line but not for about 8 weeks, you can start checking the beginning of May.

    Good luck!

    Thanks Suzanne.

    Do you work for CGFNS? I'm checking every week day anyway just in case.

    I do not work for CGFNS. I used to live in Michigan but am currently living in Bangkok. Because of all of my students, I work with CGFNS closely and am aware of all of their rules and regulations. You can check the website every week, but I can promise you that nothing will be up until the beginning of May. Remember, the exam was given all over the world, not just in the US. They have to receive the exams from all over and then get them processed. Nothing will be done and posted before two months. Never has in the past, and won't in the future. Only PASS or NO PASS will be posted, you will have to wait for your actual score to be sent to you in the mail. That will be done after things are posted.

    Good luck........................

    is IELTS accepted in the US ? My sis failed the TSE and took the IELTS. Is this accepted for a visa screen? What is the passing score when you want to be in the US? In UK?

    sorry to hear that you failed last July. I passed CGFNS in March and that was my first time for it. I studied on KAPLAN, CGFNS guide book and Mosby. They are all good sources.

    For me it is really important to work on the questions. I did almost 4,000 questions in 3 months...in the book and CD- ROM.

    When will you take it again,BTW??
    hi everyone,
    i am planning to take cgfns exam by end of this year. can anyone please give me more details on the kaplan and mosby guide books for cgfns. i mean what is the actual title of the books and where can i purchase them. thank you.

    Use the CGFNS guide book, as well as NCLEX study guides for the others.
    You can use Saunders, Mosby, Lippincott...............etc. They all have excellent reviews. Just try to do as many questions each day that you can. The earliest that you will be able to take the CGFNS exam is November, so you have plenty of time. If you shoot for 100 per day you will be well on your way.
    I would highly recommend that you get your application in as soon as possible, because deadline posted is when all documents have to be received, not just your application. This means papers from your nursing board as well as university.
    Get the Visa Screen application filed as soon as possible also. You do not need to have results of your exams for this to be started, you can save yourself quite a bit of time.
    Do you know which state that you are interested in working in? I would apply to them as soon as possible as you will need permission from them to be able to sit and write the NCLEX exam. Some states are taking months for this, example, California is over 6 months right now just for the ATT letter.

    Hope that this helps..................

    In response to Faby's note above: CGFNS is not required for a green card. You have a choice of either CGFNS or NCLEX. English is required for all, except if you have trained in a country where English is the native language, or your program was taught completely in English.
    HI EVERYONE:
    I'm very proud of being the one who opened this particular post, so many months ago. Now, as I can see, I was not alone, we are so many.

    To you Suzanne4: I'm very confused. If CGFNS ex isn't required for a Green Card, what is it for?
    And, now that I passed CGFNS examination, and I'm about to apply for Visascreen, do know about any Nursing Agency or Hospital that would be interested in sponsoring foreign nurses? It seems to me that getting a job is quite difficult, isn't it? I wouldn't like to apply for Visascreen if I don't have any possibility of obtaining a job.
    thank you,
