    It really seems to be easier but not cheaper. I downloaded the licence registration for N.Y. (4 pages), the credit evaluation for N.Y. and the Visa screen stuff. Is that everything? I hope so. Oh and I will start the online courses required for N.Y. .
    Today I will call somebody to translate my german licence and I will call the notary public .Unfortunately my daughter will be home by noon. I am so thankful that I do not have to do the CGFNS exam.

    You have to do online courses for NY?

    Yes, there are two. One on infection control, and one on abuse. They can both be done on-line and are listed right on the NY BON website. They are each about $15 US.

    If you go to the website, and look at the training places, you can look at the ones that offer on-line training. You will find quite a large list right there.

    As far as credit for anything, they won't help you that way.
    But for increasing your knowledge, they are invaluable!

    Thanks, sometimes I feel i have been studying all my life!!!! Which I probably have. Now I have passed NCLEX I have studying to do for my job here in UK because i can't sit doing nothing waiting to come to US which could take years, if the threads on here have anything to go by.

    Kay, what are the compulsory courses you have to do? And have OGP stated why they are compulsory? I really thought once you'd passed NCLEX that was it for immigration purposes. I think you're getting a raw deal, it doesn't seem fair.

    There are certain requirements that JCAHO has put forth for all nurses, so no matter who you are working for, they have to be done every year. They are short courses, or what I would call just a class, or something that you can do on-line or at home in just one hour.

    One is on age-competencies, another fire safety just to give you a few exmaples.


    Wouldn't worry about it.
