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?
