    how long does it take for CGFNS to process and finalized the CES report if they have utilized the requirements I have sent for visa screen?

    Hi!

    My friend just endorsed from CA to Vermont due to the SSN issues in California. She received her license from vermont today but it states there that it will expire March 2011. Why is that? I thought the license is renewable every 2 years?

    I'm also in the process of endorsing to Vermont. I sent them my application along with the other requirements last week. My friend, sent her application to Vermont July 2010.

    hello chinita... unfortunately, many of us misunderstood the every 2 years renewal thing... apparently it means they only have renewal periods set every two years... so it doesn't matter when you received your license, renewals are made on a two-year cycle by all licensed RNs in vermont and the last renewal period was march 2009... therefore the next one will be on march 2011, then 2013 so on and so forth... it's another 95$ on us

    i suggest if your pass letter from cali will expire way after march 2011 that you start your endorsement at around feb 2011 to save you some money... but these rules change without notice so it still is your prerogative really

    how long did it take for your friend to receive her license from vermont by mail? i was issued a license last aug 9 and i still haven't got my hard copy...

    goodluck!

    "since the California BRN has already issued a statement that they will no longer extend validities of pass letters effective, if i'm not mistaken, april 10 or 30, 2010.."

    What does this mean?

    Unfortunately, mine will expire January 2011. I already sent my application to Vermont so there's no turning back. My friend asked me if the actual license is the paper that vermont sent to her. I have no idea what Vermont's license look like.

    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...

    Ok, so since I already have a SSN I will be able to receive my CA license? Do I have to wait to submit my paperwork for the Visa Screen Certificate until I pass the NCLEX? Also, I'm taking my NCLEX through MN and then endorsing it to CA...do I have to wait to receive my CA license number before submitting the paperwork or does it not matter if I use MN or CA license number (stupid question: your license number changes when you endorse it to another state right?!) Thanks so much for your help!!!

    I only printed my copy, it will be available for a year. This is a part of the email from CGFNS informing me that they have issued my CES.

    Please click on the Order Status link under Applicant Options, select your order and click the "View CES Applicant Report" button where you will be able to view and print your report. This report will be available for one year.

    When the status of your order is REPORT ISSUED any State Board who you have selected as a recipient will be notified that your report is available.
