    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.

    Yes, you can provide results of NCLEX for your Visa Screen Certificate, as California will submit a document for you for a fee, but they will not sign off on any endorsement since you don't actually have a license issued there.

    first, why are you wishing to take the cgfns exam, unless you are going to work in one of about four states in the us, there is absolutely no reason to take it.

    cgfns exam will not give you a license to practice, you are still going to need to take the nclex-rn at some point to work here. please read the stickies at the top of this forum, everything is explained there in detail.

    and welcome to allnurses.com.........

    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?

    i have a number of questions...can i ask which states require local board exam or local license?? and which states require cgfns exam...can i fly to u.s without the local license..will the u.s immigration allow me? what valid explanation can i tell them if i did not take the local board exam on purpose? wheew thats all...by the way im from the philippines..thanks in advance for your reply..

    Please take the time to do a search here. All of the information that you are requesting is already on this forum.

    The thread that you are actually posting to is more than a couple of years old.

    Do not select a state based on what you need for there, but based on where you wish to work. That is how you should start.

    Decide where you want to work, and then go from there. Suggest that you take the time to do some reading on this forum, particularly to the stickies at the top of this forum.

    And there is a retrogression in place, so just coming to the US for the purpose of staying will do you know good, and is actually illegal per US Immigration. You must be in the US for five months before you can work legally, and that is when there are visas available. US Immigration is cracking down on those that come over and begin working when they legally cannot and they are deporting.

    Please take the time to do some reading and follow legal options. What you want to do is not one of them. You have a long time to go just to be able to sit for the NCLEX exam, and get the other requirements completed.

    Hi Everybody I think I need some help with the CGFNS Ex. I've just failed on July 2003. Iwas really sure that I did well, but I failed. the major problem is that as I'm not living in US i had to travel specially for the examination. And as the comunication with the CGFNS was no as fluent as I would expect, I was told that I was rostered only a few days before the examination date. So I traveled under great stress, I mean, Ihad never been to NY and I traveled by myself. The trip was really great; the only problem was that I failed. I really studied quite little, I have to say. i used The CGFNS study guide and KAPLAN.
    Can anobody recomend other sources of study? Can any body has any experience on CGFNS EX. Thank you. FABY

    The CGFNS exam is only required for about five states now, it has not been required for all of the states for several years now. And it is only for the US, just like the NCLEX exam is only for the US for licensure.

    Suggest that you have a look at the Primer at the top of this forum, there is much information that you need to know.

    There is no reason to write the CGFNS exam unless it is specifically required for the state that you wish to work in. No other reason to write it, it will not help you with anything at all.
