    You need to search "Licensure by endorsement" on the International forum, as the information has been posted a lot.

    Basically:
    1. Have your physical license from VT in hand.
    2. Go to NY board of nursing website at NYS Nursing License Requirements - RNs, LPNs
    3. Complete the requirements for NYC - which includes applying for CGFNS' CVS report (CGFNS International) to evaluate your foreign transcripts and licenses.
    4. You also need to have Infection Control and Child Abuse online courses done I think.

    you have to apply for Credential Verification Service of NY (log in CGFNS website) in order to be eligible to practice in NY state......

    And just to throw this in, licenses are never converted or transferred. You will need to go thru the endorsement process and will hold a license in both states until the VT one expires, if you do not renew it.

    What do you mean? The main question, should I through CVS program or just "Licensure by endorsement" like an american nurse from Vermont state?

    according to the website as a foreign trained nurse you have to CVS through CGFNS even for endorsement

    :yeahthat:

    The site clearly tells you to complete the Licensure by Endorsement form, but you have additional requirement for CGFNS as a foreign trained nurse.

    For NY - They will require you to do the CVS for NY no matter what. Doesn't mater if you passed the NCLEX already through another State BON/BRN or even licensed already (for those States that gives licenses w/o US SSN) and yes the application you will be filling would be licensure by endorsement.

    again, you are a foreign trained nurse so you need CVS program to be able to practice in NY even if you already passed the Vermont NCLEX

    hello augigi,
    i was browsing through the BON NY website, but i couldn't find the Licensure by Endorsement form. I know i have to file for a CVS with CGFNS, but after filing for a CVS, i am clueless as to what i should do next.

    i don't know what form to accomplish because i can't seem to find the form for the endorsment process. what form number is it?

    tnx!!!
