Please read carefully: this will surely resolve now our problem on the issue of what English language to be accepted. Under Illinois Department of Financial & Professional Regulation it setforth that there are three (3) requirements for an Internationally Educated Nurse to obtain an "Illinois license",to wit:
1. CES Report (Credential Evaluation Report)
2. TOEFL (Test of English as Foreign Language)
3. NCLEX (National Council Licensure Exam.)
Under TOEFL, it clearly highlighted & emphasized the word "only" that TOEFL is the only English test acceptable for licensure in illinois & must achieve a passing minimum score of 550 or 213 on the TOEFL computer base exam. It was also emphasized that these requirements such as CES and TOEFL applies to all Internatinally Educated Nurses including those applying by endorsement,US Citizens and Visa Holders. CGFNS is no longer a requirement to obtain a license in the State of Illinois. Current Revision 08/16/05. I hope & fervently pray as a foreign nurse they will make a revision that IELTS is also acceptable in the State of Illinois in the near future. Thank you & God bless us all. http://www.idfpr.com/DPR/APPLY/FORMS/CGFNS_02.pdf
