    Mine took about 9 months, kept ringing them as they said waiting for various documents as one week said they had them next saying they didn't, Very frustrating.Even got my visa screen before CES

    Tips would be send everything by either FedEx or UPS especially transcripts. I arranged FedEx to pick up my transcripts from the university.

    Dont get me started about cgfns CES report!!! Long story short it took 11 months from submission of application to issue of report. I cannot stress highly enought to keep on at people. Call your nursing school check they got your requests for transcript then call to check they sent it. Call cgfns EVERY week I mean EVERY week keep asking how your case is going why it is sitting still.

    They sat on my case for weeks at a time and I would call and they would say yeah were just waiting for this or that and they hadnt even requested it or told me I needed it!!!! I waited with my file pending as complete for 4 MONTHS called every week they said it was complete and awaiting a reviewer. Well I finally siad enough was enough called to make a formal complaint spoke to a supervisor who eventually told me they had changed rules in NJ and cgfns fees and now I had to pay another $85 for cgfns to tell NJ BON I spoke english in UK (shocker) and that was what was holding it up.

    Of course I told her why could they have not told me tha t 4 MONTHS AGO!!!

    Anyhoo finally got report last week and am none the wiser it states my hours completed but doesnt say if I need to make up classes or if I am eligible for nclex in NJ based on my training. i guess I just need to sit tight and wait to hear from NJ BON.

    In my opinion cgfns need goverment investigation they hold a nasty monopoly on foreign nurses and it is disgusting!!!

    Keep on the phone to them and good luck.

    Which state board of nursing requires you to take the CES? Where are you applying?

    You would just take the CGFNS test and you think you wont need to complete the CES report?

    Most states are no longer wanting the CGFNS exam, the CES is just a credentials evaluation. The CGFNS exam does not work for all states anymore that are specific about wanting the CES.

    The CES has detailed review of your hours and courses completed, the CGFNS exam does not do that, and that is what the states are looking for in most cases.

    There are only five states out of the entire US that want to see the CGFNS exam.
