I just need to vent a little

  1. I sent a letter requesting a full transcript and verification of training to my School of Nursing in New Zealand and yesterday received an email from Vermont asking me to request a complete transcript as I my school sent a piece of paper with my grades and nothing else.

    I am so upset for 2 reasons, firstly I was very specific in my letter as to what information Vermont needed and my school ignored my request, secondly my US citizen fiance wants to go home as soon as possible and this has delayed the process even further.

    I emailed my school and further requested the correct transcript along with the email Vermont Nursing Board sent me so there is nothing else I can do at the moment.

    Anyone else had this problem with useless Schools of Nursing not sending full transcripts?

    Anyone else frustrated at the whole process of applying for registration in the US?

    Thanks for listening (or reading rather). No-one else seems to understand what Im going through.

    You are not the first one that this has happened to, nor will you be the last.

    My circumstances are alittle different, however I second your frustration. I can't offer any positive words right now because I am bewildered by this whole process, with the issue of retrogression to look forward to at the end.
    I wish you luck, hope I haven't depressed you further.

    Do you actually have friends or family near your nursing school? If you do, have them go there with a signed letter from you and have the school give them a certified copy of your transcript in a sealed envelope that they have put their seal on the back flap. This is accepted by Boards of Nursing, and even CGFNS, if you need them for anything.

    The other thing that you can do is to contact the Dean of the nursing program and inform her of what happened. The registrars office needs to comply with requests and you did not ask for anything that was out of the ordinary. Not anything different than if you were applying to grad school and needed the same document.

    Please let me know what happens.

    Hi Djuna ,I am so sorry to hear your concerns.Did you find from your school the reasons for not issuing you request?.Some schools request a few for issuing transcripts and even though some of the requesting bodies eg cgfns or other foreign schools or colleges vow they will pay ,they will not issue unless they send the required cheque.
    Most Vincentians who migrated had that problem ,hence once we go to make the request in person they will ask us up front to pay cash before it is been done.
    Hence many people in the past would have complained that they did not respond to their request.But we so need to get out that we paid stat.
    Recently ,the fee was $45 ,now it is $200 because the demand and the exodus of nurses.
    Don,t worry. Just find out from them exactly why,your transcipt is yours you can fight them legally if they insist to keep you back in life.

    I had waited for my transcript from mine nursing school in Ukraine to be sent to CGFNS for 2.5 years.
