Working Permit question

  1. 0
    hi guys,
    my foreign grauate nurse friend (active RN license in FLorida) plans to apply for Endorsement in Chicago, Illinois.


    Crediatial Evaulation Service (CES) Report from CGFNS Evaluation Agency is a requirement for Endorsement Application. and it will take 1 to 2 months for CGFNS to send the CES Report to Illinois BON office.


    Can he be given a temporary working permit to work in Chicago, Illinois while his Endorsement Application requirement is still not complete ?

    IL no longer has temp licenses. You need to get your license in order to work.

    my friend's issue is about aquiring a working permit while waiting for the completion of requirements for Endorsment application

    is a working permit the same as temporary license?

    No, they are different. I think you might want to post in the International Forum for more immigration-related questions.

    Please be aware though that unemployment for new nurses in IL is VERY VERY high - highly doubt that your friend is going to get hired over US grad as plenty of them are waiting in line for jobs.
