Oct 12, '06Quote from gumdropsaunder is a very good book.. goodluck.... I also took the CGFNS last july and did not make it. I agree with suzanne not to take CGFNS again and just to focus on the NCLEX. Right now, I'm trying to finish the Saunder's. :spin:
Oct 27, '06Quote from dennisthemenacehmmm...though-provoking points there BTW.I think that also puts the US employer at a disadvantage. A US employer brings a foreign nurse to the States to do a registered nurse's job. When the foreign nurse fails to pass the NCLEX, he or she, as a result, cannot function as an RN. That would have wasted the employer's investments in bringing him or her to the US. Likewise, the US government would have wasted an immigrant visa granted to a CGFNS passer who cannot get an RN license, when the visa could have gone to a foreign nurse who has passed the NCLEX and now holds a US license.
I agree and IMO NCLEX-RN is easier to pass than the CGFNS exam. I took NCLEX RN last March 15, 06. I took CGFNS last March 08, 06...exactly a Wednesday in between the two exams...hahaha...talk about suicide!
I got my NCLEX result 2 days after (passed)...I got my CG result 2 mos after (passed). I tried to synthesize what my CG exam report was talking about re: what topics I should concentrate on studying to be able to pass the NCLEX. Most of my performance per topic is on or just below the desirable score...Raaatsss! So now what? They tell me to study harder coz i'm on the borderline? Then how the hell was i able to pass the NCLEX in 75 questions?:trout:
