    when you say pm, what do you mean exactly because this is a delecate matter and i need strict privacy.
    pm means private message. it is private. you just click on suzanne's name and it will show option to send private message. this can not be read by anybody other than her because that will directly go to her inbox.

    In the upper right hnad corner, right below where it states "Welcome_______, it states when you signed on last, and then says "Private Message"---it is just like sending an e-mail. Can't do any better than that.

    Hi,
    I just read your posting about NY. You wrote that NY ist the quickest way, unless you want to work ....
    We will be moving to Wisconsin sooner or later ( I guess we will see when the military is ready to let us move... ) and I am a german nurse, still not sure which way to choose to get my license in the US. We have at least two years untill we will move, hopefully to WI. To work in Wisconsin, would you happen to know if they would endorse a NY license for a foreign educated nurse? I checked the homepage from WI BON and I am still not sure. If they require the CGFNS, I might as well go for that.
    Thanks again,
    Johanna

    I just looked at WI website, and you will need a form filled out by your school and sent to them, otherwise they will endorse your license without any issue. They do not require the CES or the CGFNS exam.

    You do not need a license in your country to work in NY. Follow the sitckiy that I have at the top of the page for working in the US, it is everything that you need to do for NY.

    Suppose you've gone through all the cgfns papers/nclex and english exams by yourself out of US(without the help of agency & never want to get the help of an agency), how do you find an employer in US especially if you're a new graduate?

    You need to contact hospitals directly.

    As Suzanne said, contact the hospitals directly. In my experience, recruiters are often impressed that you have done all of the work yourself, without the help of an agency.

    If you have been in and out of US while your visa screen is being processed, will there be any possibility that your immigrant visa will be denied when applied in your home country since the embassy will know it and as far as I am concerned, when you go to US on a tourist visa, you should not have other intentions like wanting to be employed.

    Hello, sorry, but it seems that I have forgot something (important) I have applied and submit forms for CVS-NY, but havent send the Application for licensure for New York State yet, should I send it right now or can I wait CGFNS to accept my CVS?
  12. by   karin78
    is there any other form I have to send?
  13. by   suzanne4
    You can wait, but it will only delay your apporval to sit for the NCLEX. If you have the time, then there is not an issue with it. You also need to submit the applivation for the Visa Screen Certificate.
