CGFNS-CES

  1. 0
    Hi everyone!
    I'm from Philippines and i've been planning to apply for licensure in New Mexico. One of the requirements is a CES. CGFNS is the credentialing agency that i would want to evaluate my credentials.. I just wanted to know what's the first thing that i must do. Should i register online first at the CGFNS site, fill up and send a CES application form online or thru snail mail, or file a request for academic records to my school and a request for validation of registration at PRC?

    Up to you whether you do online or snail mail for CES CGFNS but be aware if you make any mistakes on the online process you have to write to CGFNS and explain what you did wrong and what it should state.

    Whether you start first with CGFNS or state will depend on state, some states require you to do CES first before sending your application to the BON. I would wait until you have completed application before approaching for validation as you may need a CGFNS number which you will not get until you have submitted your application

    I personally used CES in applying for the State of Illinois. I paid thru credit card and printed the forms needed. I had my school in the Phils. complete some of the details of the forms and went to PRC for the License Validation form (with the corresponding fees). Then I mailed it in QC Post Office near QC City Hall. I think the time span was I started doing the forms August 2008 and had it finished around January 2009 I guess. I also read from the State's site other useful information so I know what to do after I finished CES.

    I filed my application online because it's more convenient on my part. You can immediately receive your order number which you will be writing in the forms for your school (academic records) and prc (license verification). You will also know what documents were waived and needed. Do your online application in the morning (early dawn, between 1 to 4AM) for faster internet connection.

    The processing of license verification at PRC is done within 3 days. They will be the one mailing your documents to CGFNS. If you use regular mail, it will be received by CGFNS within 7 - 14 days.

    If you already have your TOR then your school will just accomplish the CGFNS form and then sealed the envelop. Request your TOR first if you don't have because some schools are very slow in processing TOR.

    Why is PRC asking for my TOR and Average during the board exam? I am required by PRC to fill out the PRC form with such info and requested that I submit my TOR for them to process my CES.

    Hi!What are the documents needed to be submitted in CES?
    a. HS diploma will be personally sent by me?right?
    b. TOR, Course/subj description, RLE summary will be sent by my school
    c. PRC validation of license
    Is this everything or am I lacking somthing?

    Everything should be written in the handbook as well as listed on the CES application form

    I just checked my CES status on CGFNS and it says Meets all program requirements (for my nursing license overseas and college transcripts) and Received for my high school transcripts. Its been 12 weeks and i am just wondering when can I expect my report to be issued?

    another question...Next to my HS transcripts and "Received", I have a note that says:SECONDARY SCHOOL DIPLOMA
    Your transcript has been received and a preliminary review has occurred by a CGFNS Transcript Specialist.


    Does this info represent anything relevant?!

    Just means that it has been received and initial review has occurred. Main review will be once everything has been received and someone will go through file to complete it
