Puertorrican nurse and license endorsement

  1. I'm an ADN with a license from Puerto Rico and I wanted some advice on how to get my license endorsed so I can start working. I currently live in Fl but it has been horrible to get my RN license out here so I was planning on moving to my hometown of Stamford, Ct but there so many things to do that I wanted to know if anyone knew how to do all this quickly and cheap. I want to work so badly and everytime I try to get my credential evaluation it has been a dead end. If anybody has gone thru this and has some advice please let me know.

    I'm living in Puerto Rico and just got my RN license so I think I know a little of what you are going through. I wanted to ask if you are having issues with a credentialing agency? I used CGFNS. It was very expensive but they were very organized and above average customer service I'd say since it's a constant back and forth with documents from the school to them. Once that credentialing process is approved the Board, in my case FL, revises it and decides if your education was equivalent to any curriculum in the United States thats approved. That itself was a bit time consuming. Then they allowed me to sit for the NCLEX. Now I see you already have a license from Puerto Rico. I remember before you could transfer it over, but now you must sit for the NCLEX as well. Please forgive me if I did not answer your question. I'd be more than happy to help if you need more details concerning the process.
