    hello, i would like to ask if vermont requires u to take cgfns for foreign nurses or just nclex and english exams?
    I would suggest either doing a search on here or look at their website. You don't need CGFNS exam except for a handful of states. Always better to get it from source which would be their site

    And to clear up a few things for those of you that are new here:

    There is no such thing as an application for the NCLEX exam for any state, it just does not exist.

    You will be applying for licensure in that state, and the exam is just one of the steps. It is far from being the only one and you must have permission from the state to be able to sit for that exam.

    There is no way to apply directly for it.

    And for those of you that are new here, highly recommend that you take the time to read the stickies at the top of this forum, in particular the one called the Primer for working in the US. There is much information there that you need to know before you start any procedure.

    Can you please elaborate some important and pertinent informations why should you take your NLCEX in Vermont aside from being a Vermont resident? A classmate of mine also may took the upcoming NCLEX in Vermont. Goodluck toyou all! Please share your valuable ideas.

    many choose Vermont for the fast processing time but I think that time takes longer now due to the high applications they receive. The exam is a national exam so makes no difference which state you take it in. With retrogression there is no need to rush and much better in general to apply to the BON of the state you want to work in with a few exceptions

    There is no application for the NCLEX exam, one does not exist. You must apply for licensure as an RN and gain approval to sit for the exam. There is no way to apply for it in any way.

    The application for Licensure by Examination is available on the website for the BON for this state. You need to download it from there and follow the instructions.

    But if you are not planning to actually work there, then there really is not any reason to go thru that state. It is not any faster than the others because of the increase in applications that they are now receiving. And add into the fact that there are no visas for working in the US, it will be a few years before you even have a chance to get a visa. It is no longer a guaranteed thing that passing the NCLEX-RN exam and finding an employer will get you a green card to work in the US. Just is not the case anymore.

    You may wish to consider some other countries provided that you have passed the NLE. Most require that as well as experience.

    Please have a good read here again and see what we keep posting, there is no application for the NCLEX exam, so there is no way for anyone to send it to you.

    You can go to the website for VT and download the application for Licensure by Examination from there and complete that. You must have permission from them to sit for the NCLEX exam. There is no mention on the application as it being an application for the exam, it is for licensure as an RN, and only that.

    If you are not going to work in VT, then I would think again on selecting that state as well as knowing that it is going to be more than five years before you even have a chance of getting to work in the US legally. There just are not any visas available and there are many more ahead of you already and less than 10,000 per year when they are available. Would highly recommend that you focus on going to another country first to get experience as we are expecting that to become a requirement here once again soon.

    Also suggest that you take the time to read the Primer at the top of this forum for information that you need to be aware of.

    As mentioned, the exam is a national exam, so which state that you write it for really does not make any difference not where you write it.
    If you are not going to be working there, then there really is no good reason to go thru there as you will be spending much time and money trying to endorse to the state where you will be working.

    Add into it the fact that you are looking at five years at the minimum before having a chance to get to the US. It is no longer a done deal if you pass the exam and even find an employer. There are many more from your country that wish to work in the US but not enough visas to go around, and that is not going to change. The US has a limit to the number that can come per year.

    Hi to everyone!...It's been a while since my last visit in this site... Im planning to take liensure for Vermont next year. Im just waiting for the release of my license and change of status (single to married )... Before, I wanted to take all the exams needed for abroad before looking for a local hospital job for me to be able to focuse on my review for NCLEX. But now, i get bored and wanted to look for a job since I haven't pass my application for Vermont licensure yet... Can anyone help me decide wether...

    1, I review first and take all the necessary exams, or
    2. look for a job first then if I already pass my application for licensure, stop/resign from working and review for the exam

    Please, I really need an opinion from you. Hope to hear from all of you soon. Your advices will be highly appreciated... Thank You and God Bless Us Nurses!
