    oh, im sorry i did not know that my bad...im planning to go to florida, or maybe california. is cgfns still required to work in those states? may i ask where can i download the forms for cgfns and nclex?? thanks in advance=)
    I suggest having a good read on here and use the search facility using keywords of Florida and California there are plenty of threads covering both these states and their requirements. You can also use google.com and keywords California nursing and Florida nursing and will pull up their websites so you can get up to date information on requirements of foreign nurse.

    For a start CGFNS exam is not required by both BONs

    HI; YOU NEED TO GO TO www.cgfns.org AND CHOOSE WHICH PROCESS IS RIGTH FOR YOU, THERE ARE SEVERAL OF THEM . IN THIS SITE UYOU DOWNLOAD THE APPLICATION YOU NEED.
    REGARDING THE NCLEX, YOU NEED TO APPLY IN THE STATE IN WHICH YOU WNAT TO WORK. SO, GOOGLE THE DIFFERENT NURSING BOARDS, AND THEN YOU COULD CHOOSE WHERE TO GO .

    CGFNS exam is only required for less than five states, if your state does not require it, then do not consider taking it. It will be useless for you to take it and will not benefit you in any way.

    THE CGFNS exam is not a licensing exam, you will be required to write the NCLEX-RN exam to actually get licensed in the US.

    Hi

    I passed CGFNS exam and TOEFL. I've got the certificate and i sent it to the board of nursing PA and I'm waiting for appointment for RN exam. My question is: can i work as a LPN by the time. It seems nobody there (in PA board) has any idea
    I think I should mention that i don't need visa screen program
    Is there anybody here can answer my question ??



    Thank you

    to work as LPN you need to meet the requirements of the BON and pass NCLEX PN so really meet requirements the same was as for RN so if you have not done that then I would say no you can't work as LPN
