    Hi and welcome to the site

    I suggest a big read in this forum especially the sticky called Primer to working in the US. There is no quick way to apply to NY BON for licensure to be a RN and taking the NCLEX is the last step in that process.For NY you are looking at approx 6-12 months before sitting the exam. You also need to be aware of retrogression and coming from the Philippines you are affected, plus finding a hospital in NY willing to petition you for GC is very low.

    CGFNS CVS> NYSED > NCLEX
    Is this correct? Im really confused in the licensing process in NY. I am already at the CGFNS credential verification after that they will forward my application to NYSED and here is the question. Will NYSED forward my application to NCLEX or should I mail or email them for them to forward it? Oh and by the way, can I apply for the limited permit with the CGFNS CVS?

    NY should let you know when to pay pearsonvue. Not sure what you mean by limited permit? If looking at interim permit I would say not an option as retrogression in progress and no way to change your status at a later date. You are looking at a few years before working in the US and that is if you are lucky to get a GC

    NYSED will only give you a license number to be use in registering for NCLEX. You will be the one to take of your application for NCLEX. When did you start your CVS? It will take time, mine takes 14 months before I got the result. Limited permit is only issued to those people who have come to the US without taking NCLEX.This is issued for you to work while you are waiting for the result of your NCLEX. They will not issue you a limited permit since you are in the Philippines, with the retrogression in effect the best way is for you to secure all requirements first, gain experience and worry about immigration later. By the way have you started your immigration process?(I-140,Visa fee bill,DS-230)

    Ah I see, I started my CVS last on the first week of august. Geez, if I only knew that this will be the licensing proces in NY I should have not started it. I have not yet started my immigration process. Thanks for all the information. Can you help me with all the things that I have to do? Thanks again kabayan. :spin:

    The correct process for NY licensure:

    CVS must be completed thru CGFNS. NY does not accept anything else and cannot use the CES; nor can the CVS be used for any other state.

    Average wait time is eight months, it is definitely not fast.

    There is no way to apply directly for the NCLEX exam, you must be given an approval by a state BON to be able to sit for the exam.

    NY does not issue any type of licensure number untio the person has passed the exam, and met the requirements for licensure.

    You should wait until you know that the CVS has been completed before you even consider registering for the exam, as there is a time limit of one year that your funds will be held on account, then they go to Pearson-Vue and they are not returned, nor will they be available to you.

    Please be aware that we have not hears of any hospitals doing any petitioning in NY for quite sometime. Add in to that now the fact of the retrogression expected to last for you for sometime, and NY is not the best option for you.

    Suggest that you do some reading on this forum before you send anything anywhere. Much has already been written on this very same topic.

    What are you looking for? When going through the CVS all you can do is complete application with CGFNS and wait. Once CGFNS have passed it on to the NY BON and you have completed and paid your application you will then get the OK to sit NCLEX. It is a long process and average take is over 7 month before you get ATT
