    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,

    CGFNS is required by 45 of 50 states for initial licensure. So, if you want to work in one of those states, you need the CGFNS exam. Requirements for processing of the green card is either passing scores on CGFNS or NCLEX and the complement of English exams if you are not exempt from them.
    NCLEX is only available in the US and not all nurses qualify for a tourist visa to take it. In many countries, the nurse wages aren't high enough for the nurse to qualify for a tourist/visitor visa, so by being able to use CGFNS exam in their own country, they can get the work done for the green card.

    Where are you interested in working? What area of the country? What specialty? Have you completed your series of English exams?

    You go to www.cgfns.org and then log into your account. It will post pass or no pass there, the score will not be posted, it will only be sent to you in the mail.

    I will repeat myself for the 100th time, if you are a foreign nurse, do not go for initial licensure in California. California will only issue you a license after you have a SSN#, not before. Which means that if you try to endorse to another state you will be unable to as you will not actually have a CA license. They only send you a letter that you meet all of the requirements, but do not actually issue you a number without the SSN#. You have up to three years to get the number submitted to them, but with the new changes for some of the countries, that may not be enought time.

    One that I highly recommend is New York. CGFNS actually takes care of obtaining all of the required info because of the specail credentials verification that NY requires, you do have to pay a few extra dollars for it, but they will actually issue you a hard licnese as soon as you pass the NCLEX exam.

    There is nothing else for you to do at this point, but for anyone just beginning the process, stay away from California for initial licensure.

    You will not be able to endorse to any other state until you actually have received your hard license and/or have been assigned an actual number by them.
