And unless you actually attended nursing school
in the US, you are going to find it almost impossible to get a hospital to petition you there. It just is not happening in NY for hospitals. We are only seeing nursing homes or some agencies doing it. And then there has been the issue of the agency not having work for the nurse.
No way that I woudl advise NY for any foreign nurse at this time, and have not done so for more than 18 months.
And would not even start looking for an employer until you have passed the NCLEX exam. With CGFNS only, you are only going to get a nursing home. To get licensed in NY, you are going to need to go thru the CVS process thru CGFNS, and that will take about 8 months or so on average to get done. They are unable to use any of the documents that you had submitted for the CGFNS exam. NY has very strict requirements.
As Anna suggested, you need to spend sometime reading here. Much for you to be aware of.
