Apart from that which applicaiton do i use to apply for this exam? Btw im an american citizen.

    and about the nclex, can i do that here in malta or at least in london or do i have to do it whilst in new york....thanks
    If you are going to NY are you planning on applying to NY? If that is the case then you do not need the CGFNS exam just the CVS and that takes approx 6-8 months before getting eligibility to sit NCLEX so better to start now as long as you have completed your training and have a full set of transcritps

    Hi, you mentioned that English language exam fee is included in the Certification Program fee? Am I right? I'm scheduled for the CGFNS exam on Nov 15. I currently live in Wisconsin as a permanent resident but educated in the Philippines. Am I required to take the English exam or can it be bypassed by any means?

    Also, my study resources are for NCLEX too like Kaplan and Mosby. Are these enough?
    I don't have the study guide too. Is it the one in PDF? Or should it be paper-mailed by CGFNS as a book?

    You can not avoid the English exam unless you meet the criteria set down by CGFNS

    To be exempt from the English proficiency requirement, you must meet ALL of the following criteria:

    • country of nursing education was in Australia, Barbados, Canada (all provinces; the only approved schools in Quebec are: McGill University and Dawson College in Montreal, Vanier College in St Laurent, John Abbot College in Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue, and Heritage College in Gatineau), Ireland, Jamaica, New Zealand, South Africa, Trinidad and Tobago, the United Kingdom or the United States.
    • textbook and instruction language was in English.
