    May our father jesus christ guide those people in CGFNS to come up with a fair and just resolution of this issue . It breaks my heart when i see the june 06 passer's parents, wives and children losing hope to have a better future because of some corrupt and selfish people in this profession.

    One person getting a VSC, does not mean that all will be getting one. The issue is still on hold with ICHP and no resolution has been issued in this as of yet. So do not get your hopes up.

    Im keeping my hopes high because i am sure that CGFNS will come up with a fair decision. 4yr education and a BSN degree here in philippines is already enough to prove that we are competent and if we can pass NCLEX RN and english examination this will solidify our worth to serve in the united states.

    You could have retaken the exam already in December and go on with your life. Those that did have no worries.

    i know a friend (a very very close one) who passed the june 2006 NLE. her visascreen certificate is now on its way to her house... she's happier than ever! believe me or not, whatever. but my point is, a june2006 passer, registered, took cgfns exam, toefl, then applied for visascreen, after a week, status says there in cgfns website, CERTIFIED. it was mailed jan26,2007 and the expiration also states there jan26,2012. now thats great news.

    Thread closed since no new information has come from CGFNS.

    And circumventing the rules to get something is not how things are done in the US. Getting a Visa Screen Certificate does not grant a visa, final decision is still up to the US Embassy; the VSC is only a screening tool.
