    when i applied for CES last yr, it only took about 2mos... but, cgfns increased the processing time due to increased number of applicant.. so expect more than 2 mos.


    * while im waiting for the CES report, i took TOEFL exam so time wont be wasted... then review for NCLEX RN.

    *you can pass your applic to your BON. then they will just download your CES report at cgfns site...

    [font=book antiqua]does really the endorsement process wil take long?
    [font=book antiqua]like how many months? if i choose ny or ny it will
    [font=book antiqua]take 12-14mos for cvs for ny and ces for nj to evaluate
    [font=book antiqua]my credentials, then thats the only time for me to apply for
    [font=book antiqua]my att, and its $275 for cvs + i think its a waste of time
    [font=book antiqua]and money, i perhaps can move later to nj or ny or have
    [font=book antiqua]a reciprocity.. thank u so much! :1luvu:

    just want to clear up things about the cvs for ny. it doesn't matter that you already passed the nclex in another state or get licensed from another state. if you endorse to ny, nysed will still let you undergo the cvs for ny (and it's accompanying long process - for various reasons) no matter what. that is why if you want to work in ny it is still best to apply directly for the cvs for ny.

    some says CVS process may take about 6 mos. that was before. i dunno it's timeframe now coz cgfns increases their processing times...

    my advice to you since you want to work in NJ...
    1. pass the application form to NJ BON now http://www.state.nj.us/lps/ca/nursing/nurse_app.pdf
    and apply for CES (simultaneously) http://www.cgfns.org/pdf/apps/CES%20Handbook%20Web.pdf
    2. while waiting for the report, review and take TOEFL..
    3. then, review for NCLEX


    *and when the CES report is done, you are now ready for the nclex exam...and can take it anytime you want. that's it.. CES may take about more than 2 mos.

    And to clear up a few more things, and hopefully this will be it on this topic.

    Which ever state that you want to work in, if they require the CES or the CVS for initial licensure, are also going to require it for endorsement.

    What is the hurry for the fastest? Anytime you try to cut corners to save time, it is going to cost you more in the long run to get to do what you actually want to do, as well as alot more money. And why? Makes no sense at all.

    [font=book antiqua]i'd be glad if i'll be working in ny or nj
    [font=book antiqua]but they both need cvs or ces and its goin
    [font=book antiqua]to take a while for cgfns to evaluate my
    [font=book antiqua]credentials, i actually learned from a friend
    [font=book antiqua]that cvs for ny state took her 14 mos before
    [font=book antiqua]she was allowed to apply for att and so is
    [font=book antiqua]with nj... so im really having a flaming hand on
    [font=book antiqua]which to choose :flamesonb
    [font=book antiqua]thanks so much! i need more opinon :wink2:

    since you already narrowed it down to 2 states.. i would suggest to go thru nj instead. the ces would definitely be faster than the cvs. i also don't see ny going with the cvs for a long time, esp. now that it's neighboring nj just made applying to them faster. it's either nysed will also use cgfns' ces (unlikey) or totaly do everything itself (most probable, i think) since they are currently already evaluating the transcrips and other credentials themselves and only needs the cvs to "authenticate" it for them before they review them.

    what i'm saying is that there's a possiblity that appying to ny would be faster in the near future. but until that time comes...

    just my two cents.

    Hi only passed by cos i was looking
    on how to apply for NJ, do i really
    need to apply first to NJ BON? or
    i need to apply for CES? Cos it says to
    the application form that there should be
    a certificate from CGFNS first.. thanks!
    and with regards to CES there were two
    kinds of CES the one was FULL EDUCATION
    COURSE BY COURSE the other one was
    HEALTH PROFESSIONAL SCIENCE COURSE BY
    COURSE REPORT.. ive tried emailing the NJ BOn
    but i wonder how it turned out to be undelivered..
    thanks!

    when i applied for CES last year at CGFNS, it took about 8 weeks before the report made available. i dunno the timeframe now coz i think they increased their processing times due to large number of applicants... so expect more than 2 mos for the CES report... hope it helps..

    good day all,

    I applied to NYBON, and yes, they are all correct saying that there is no faster or the fastest way to get your ATT, I guess in my opinion and experience.

    I applied last Nov 2005 to NYBON upon learning from this forum that it will only take 4 months give or take, to get my ATT. but unfortunately this wasn't true at all. The truth is, the processing time for CVS by CGFNS probably varies because it took mine 9 months for the processing alone,and if I didn't call CGFNS to inquire about this, it will still be left unattended. After talking to CGFNS they assured me that they will forward my documents to NYBON shortly. Shortly to them meant 6 weeks.

    Finally, NYBON, by August 12, emailed me that my papers are with them. Aug. 25, they emailed again saying that my ATT will be available in 10-14 days, if not... they advised me to call.

    Since I applied for CVS-NYBON and VisaScreen all at the same time (NOV>2005) in good faith that I will receive my ATT in 4 months, my problem now is my visa screen application which evidently, will expire in NOV 2006 if they have not receive my English test scores and NCLEX-RN test score. Now time and a few hundred dollars wasted.

    just sharing my experience, hope it'll help readers of this form.

    PS: i have been preparing for Nclex-RN on and off since I got a job. Reason: after 4 months of nothing from CGFNS and NYBON, I decided to work instead.
    Now that I heard from them already, my dilemma is my up and coming nclex-rn exam. Does anyone know how long i the validity of ATT of NYBON? I hope someone will share if they know. I want to know when I can take my NCLEX so I can schedule my review. Thank y'all. God Bless
