Hi Suzanne: I'm a foreign nurse, living in South America. I applyied for CGFNS CP, passed the examination and TOEFL and TWE, still did't take TSE. I'm planning to take IELTS in June, because it includes the oral part and my TOEFL and TWE are valid only until October 2004. Yet I know I have to apply for Visascreen; but I' doubting about applying before CGFNS isssues my Certificate.This is because during all the process they lost my documents, and missed up my application papers more than once, and I'm afraid that if I apply for Visascreen they won't be able to maintain them all together. You know what I mean, don't you. They are very informal and disorganized, despite all the "formality" the require form applicants. It should be a logic and simple process, as ist is seen from the outside. Anyway this is the only way to get to our goal, isn't it?
Besides after all that mess, that cost me to fail the examination once, I'm pretty dissappointed. Do you know how much time does it takes for the visascreen process to last if I have all the documents and examinations required? Do I need some Institution or Hospital to sponsor me before I apply? ( By the way , I'm the one who recently wrote you a private message through this page) Thanks a lot, fabiana
