As most of you know, I have been recommending initial licensure in NY for quite some time. And for those of you that did not heed the warning, you now know why.
New York is three easy applications only, next you take the NCLEX exam, then you get a hard license and can endorse to almost any state afterwards. Because of the requirements of the Special Credentials Verification for New York, you do not have to do any of the running around to obtain your documents. CGFNS will obtain them for you....after you sign the release and send them the money.
NY also requires two short classes that can be done on-line, one on Child Abuse, and the other on Infection. Both are available for about $15 each and take only one hour or so.
NY BON application can be found at www.op.nyed.gov
. You only need to submit "Form 1."
The Special Credentials Verification can be found at www.CGFNS.org
, as well as the Visa Screen Application.
Once you have received documentation from NY that your credentials have been received and approved, submit payment to Pearson-Vue for the NCLEX exam. www.perasonvue.com
. They are the ones that will actually send you the ATT letter, upon approval of the Board of Nursing. Be aware that this ATT (authorization to test) is only good for ninety (90) days. You will have onlt that amount of time to get the exam done in, otherwise you will lose your payment and have to start again.
Hope that this helps................
Most importantly, NY will issue you the license without a Social Security Number.

Hi suzanne, It's so glad to hear from you about the suggestion, you're so nice.
Any way, I'm not sure whether you know some info of the education system
in China, the most nurse students went to nursing school not after the high school graducation, but junior school. So we didn't own the high school diploma, but our nursing program was four years, for some cases, the first 2-year program can equivalent with the high school. Applying for the RNLEX is another problem for me, as you said, due to the retrogression, it will be more difficult. I would like to send you my resume later, but i don't have your e-mail address.
I'm searching some information about the difference between working in China and been working in USA. maybe we'll talk it next time! hope you have a nice day, it's 8:00 pm here and i suppose it's midnight at USA, so, Have a good dream.
I am well aware of the training in China..............
Do not worry about the retrogression currently in place. By the time that you get you your exmainations taken care of, it should be lifted.
I will send you my e-mail address by PM.
