I graduated from nursing and midwifery schools in the UK back in the sixties. In order to get certified over here in the US, I requested that the General Nursing Council of England and Wales confirm my certifications. They wrote back saying that over the years records have been lost and they think one of the missing is mine. Now I'm stuck and I don't know what to do. Has anyone been in this situation? How may I tackle this problem?

Visa Screen certification is dependent upon your school of nursing filling out the form and submitting a certified set of your transcripts. The nursing council just verifies that you have a license to practice and you have not had any "marks" against you, by again filling out the form. You need to submit a certified copy of your license. That is it.......................along with the application. But also keep in mind, depending on where you will be practicing, you are subject to also completing the CGFNS exam. There are only five states in the US that currently do not require it.
