I am looking for advise, opinion, anything really! I am a New Zealand trained RN, I graduated from a 3 year diploma program in 1989. I came to the US in 1991, sat the NCLEX in CA and have worked in the US ever since. I have had licences in CA, HI, CO, GA and WA. I moved to Boston in Jan and have been trying since Nov 2003 to get a licence in MA. I also completed an RN to BSN program at the University of Washington.
Basically I am so frustrated by the process, MA wants CGFNS verification of my New Zealand education. It has been more than 6 months and the cost now exceeds $700.00 and no sign of a licence.
The obvious solution would be to leave MA, but I am in a graduate program that is not easy to get into.
Any thoughts, ideas??????????
