    Hi Ruth
    Dont know if it will help any but try watching this video link http://immigration.about.com/b/a/256048.htm.

    Its by Kaplan and is a step by step guide to immigration for nurses and IMGs. Its 43 minutes long so grab a coffee before watching it. I havent seen it all cos my browser crashed half way through but hopefully it may help a little. Stay in touch.

    Just finished watching this and most of it relates to Medical Graduates (even though the blurb says its for nurses too). May not answer your questions, but there is some little bits of info that may be relevant. I just absorb anything there is about on the subject, keeps me sane after all this waiting around.:roll
    Maybe I should try baking or something instead!!!!!!!!:uhoh21:

    Please guys someone explain this to me. I have spent hours on this site on the cgfns site and searching the internet for information.

    EVERYTHING I read said to apply to CGFNS for a Credential Evaluation Service and they will issue me a report detailing wether my education is equivalent to usa and giving either what hours I need to make up for USA or telling me I have the equivalent of a usa nurse so I can go ahead and apply for ATT with NJ BON.

    SOOOOOOOO today I see online that my cgfns final document is received and my file is ready for review but on hold. I call to find out what the hold is and they tell me they cant issue my report as I have not specified a Board of Nursing to send the report to!!!!! I thought they sent the report to me so I would know what hours I needed!! There is no point them submitting the report to the New Jersey Board of Nursing as.....
    1) NJ BON have no idea who I am I have never applied to them for licensure as I dont know what hours I need to make up yet.
    2) I am no where ready to apply for ATT and sit NCLEX yet and wont be till at least May 2007 because I was going to make up hours if needed in that time in the usa or do a review course in usa to help me pass nclex.

    According to CGFNS they send report to NJ BON and a copy to me then NJ BON contact me to tell me what hours I need to make up but Im sure this is not right. But what happens then if I dont want to sit nclex before next May? Do I need to apply to NJ BON for liciencesure now so they know who I am when cgfns send them my CES Report? Am I going to end up paying twice? Once now to apply for ATT that I cant use then apply again next year.

    It is so so frustrating getting idifferent info from everywhere.

    If a CES report is going to be sent, then there needs to be an application on file with NJ for them to know what is going on............
    If you apply now to NJ, you do not applky again next year..............and do not register or sign up with POearson-Vue until you are ready to test in the first place, or you will be paying more.

    Each state has different requirements......................there is no blanket rule for all.
