MA nursing license by reciprocity

  1. 0
    I have a CA nursing license and am trying to get a MA license by reciprocity.
    I know initial applicants for the MA license by exam must pass the CGFNS exam before writing the NCLEX, but does anybody know what about initial applicants by reciprocity?

    Following the instruction, I have mailed all the required documents to the Credential Evaluation Services (TN). Here is their website.

    One of the documents I mailed was a letter of approval to write the CGFNS exam, because the instruction that I downloaded from the website says the letter is one of the documents that satisfy the requirements. However, the representatives say that all the applicants educated outside the U.S. must have the CGFNS certificate regardless of licensure by exam or reciprocity. I do not see such a definite requirement on their website.

    Have anybody applied for a MA license? Were you required to have a CFGNS certificate?

    Thanks,

    The original post to this thread is from 2004.

    Many requirements for licensure have changed since then in most states. Suggest that you look at the current rules for the state that you are interested in. There actually is no such thing as license reciprocity, only the NCLEX exam has reciprocity. Licensure in the new state is done thru endorsement and the nurse must meet the requirements in total for the new state.

    If you have a CT license then you just follow I structions on MA website for endorsement, be aware that you may need to meet requirements of initial requirements if you trained outside the USA
