    ''English language proficiency report – This is for state boards of
    nursing that require an English proficiency report included with
    Credentials Evaluation Service report. ''

    what does that mean? tia

    If the board requires English language report then you are looking at IELTS or other acceptable English exam. If you have taken exam already then you need to arrange results sent from company to appropriate body depending if you are doing CGFNS or IERF. If you go CGFNS and they already have a copy of English exam for vsc then they will use that copy as long as in date (usually valid for 2 years)

    Hi nurses. I just received an email from Vermont State that my RN license is in the mail already. Is it a hard copy? as in a card type of license? or just in paper?. I saw some query here about that but wasn't answered. Thanks for your help in advance.

    Does Vermont issue a hard copy of the RN license once approved? as in a card type license?

    Hi gurlash_nurse

    Vermont RN license is in one-page short bond paper. Not the usual card-type license. That is because license verification can be done through nursys website anyway.

    i'm wondering, since i already have a VisaScreen certificate, do i need to apply for a CES again?... the process seem redundant since the CES will be requiring me to submit credentials which are exactly the same as the ones required for my VisaScreen...

    i just want to know if anyone has been in the same situation and what they did... and how long did it take to get licensed in Vermont?... although i totally get the California BRN's move, i still would not want to have my NCLEX go to waste...

    pleeease help anyone?

    thank you!
    Hello, we are on the ship. It's my problem also, worse is, my NCLEX Pass letter already expired last year of July (2011). Am I still eligible to endorse it to VT and undergo the process posted in the thread? How's your case? Did u already receive your VT License? Pls guys, I need your responses so badly..

    hello angel... i am still in the process of having my nclex endorsed to vermont as well to obtain a license... now is the best time to have it processed while you have ample time... mine will expire on feb of next year...

    in the request letter, include your complete name, DATE and TIME you took your NCLEX and the place where you sat for your NCLEX... i also included the file number of my nclex pass letter (the one they sent me informing me that i passed the nclex)...
    pls
    and yes, the CES report is faster to process because most of the documents they require are the same as with the VSC... but you CANNOT substitute your VSC for the CES report... so you have to order a CES report from cgfns and pay another fee...

    goodluck and i am glad to be of help!

    this means that all NCLEX passers through the state of california who received their pass letters informing them that they must submit their SSN within three years from the date the letter (referred to as 'pass letter') was generated is no longer extended as was the practice prior to april 10, 2010... the BRN of california will issue the USRN license only when the candidate has submitted a valid SSN... due to the retrogression, obtaining a visa is taking longer than usual, that is, longer than the three-year expiration set in the letter... those affected by the retrogression used to write the BRN prior to the expiration of their pass letter to have theirs extended... the BRN then extend it for another year, and another and another...

    as of april 10 of this year, the BRN of california has issued a statement that they will no longer extend the validity of pass letters, meaning if you do not submit an SSN on or before your pass letter expires, they will deem your application inactive and have your files with them destroyed...
    whoAAA! DO these all mean that my files are destroyed becasue my pass letter expired last year? July 2011? Oh My God! and i have to take the nclex once again?? Guys, pls clear this up.
