    Oh. Ok that's good. Another question, when would be the best time to apply for vermont? I am planning to apply for CES this month. But there is a complication with regards to my local license here in the Philippines. It will be expired this August but I already had it renewed and was told that it can be out by September to October yet. I am planning to send the application to vermont once I have my new license. Would applying for CES and vermont now be ok or would I wait once I can receive my local license?

    Hi! i am an nclex-rn passer as well (CaliforniaBON) and i am planning to endorse my nclex result to Vermont. my question is: do i need to take the cgfns certification program?? because I just read the application packet from vermont and it says there "For RNís whose nursing program was NOT taught in English: In order to apply to the State of
    Vermont, you must have completed the CGFNS Certificate Program
    ."

    I am confused. Please help!
    you can verify the language of your nursing program with your school's registrar... it is, i think, as verified by our school registrar, in english... so i am assuming same goes for the entire philippines... as even our philippine health nursing book is in english... in the form that cgfns asks you to print and submit to your school they ask for the medium of instruction... and i have searched numerous blogs and have confirmed that a cgfns certificate is not necessary to endorse your nclex to VT as many have done so already...

    goodluck!

    hello, you can process your VSC without an agency... your VSC is something you need if you want to enter the US as a healthcare professional... the cgfns does not require you to have an agent or a sponsor to have your VSC processed... it has a validity of 5 years and is renewable for another 5 years... i suggest you have it done, but it will be expensive... around 500US$... please be reminded that the retrogression seems to be at its worst for nurses these days... visa issuance for approved applications take 5 to 7 years so goodluck!... but just so your nclex and ielts results won't go to waste (i am assuming you have passed an english exam since you need it to have your VSC processed)... the ielts keep TRFs for only 2 years... they destroy your file after...

    goodluck! i hope this helps...

    hello.. thank you for your reply. I guess one of the staff deleted my post here coz i have posted the same msg. in another related thread. but thank you, i appreciate it.

    i have another question, does visascreen renewal require another valid IELTS result, like for an instance, after 5 years of having the VS cert. and I need to renew it but my my IELTS has already expired, will there be a need for me to retake the exam or CGFNS will still consider my previous one?

    Yes, if your IELTS has expired you need to renew it when renewing vsc

    Hello everyone!

    Like the others, I'm still working on my NCLEX exam result endorsement from California to Vermont. I've already submitted my letter to CA-BON requesting for my Candidate Report. However, my My NCLEX-RN result will expire this October. What will happen if by October, my CES report had not been submitted to Vermont BON? CGFNS is requiring me to submit a form to my nursing school, and another form to the Professional Regulation Commission (my initial nursing registration - Philippines), and then to An Bord Altranais (Ireland) for my current nursing registration. Will I still be able to gain Vermont registration even if my NCLEX will expire in October since I've already requested for my Candidate report?
