    If you notice that posting was made almist two years ago about which is the fastest.

    And at the time it was, and they also issued you a hard license.

    There are still plenty that get thru in about four months.

    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.

    hi there mountaineer!

    are you referring to the 12-month application period which is part of the new policy of cgfns (mentioned in the new fee schedule)?

    I understand that the new policy covers only applications received on or after May 1, 2006. It might help if you can clear this out with cgfns as soon as possible and you can also share to us here their reply for our information.

    I remember someone called cgfns on what is the effect of the new policy to applications sent to and received by cgfns prior to may 1, 2006 (she could not pay the fee within the 60 days payment period which is also part of the new policy). She was told by a customer service assistant not to worry as her application was made/sent before may 1, 2006.

    I hope cgfns will also give an official announcement on this matter through its website. (perhaps, you can suggest this to cgns when you call them if it's ok with you).

    I hope this helps.

    ca allows a letter why you don't have your license so you may apply for nclex. but are you given the att for ca even if you haven't received your local license #? or you eligibility is put on hold until you send them a copy of you license?

    Do you have any idea about NY Nclex application? Do you have to pass the local board exam first or you have to be be licensed NUrse here in the philippines first before you can apply for NEWYORk NCLEX? pls? i badly need your advice?

    or can I endorse later to New York or California if i'll choose New mexico as my initial licensure? How long would it take for me to endorse to other state if my initial licensure is in New Mexico? thanks!

    your questions have been answered in the other thread on NM. please take time to read Suzanne's sticky notes in both the International and Philippine forum. thank you.

    [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:

    lana, you're right. cvs is taking too long in ny. my friend applied there last year and she hasn't received her report yet. if you're bent on taking the nclex asap, regardless of state, you might as well consider finding another state to live and work in.

    regarding that cvs report, does it also apply to nevada? i mean, if i endorse in nevada, will they also require my transcripts to be evaluated again by cgfns even if i passed the requirements to another state?

    HI just wanna ask if you need to be a licensed in the application of CVS? because in it's application form, there is a license verification form included.. thank you...

    cvs does not require a local license, they do not have two separate applications. there is no place that it states that it is required, just if you have one, then you need to list it.

    cvs is not a credential's evaluation, and is only good for ny. if you go to another state that requires a ces, then you will need to get that done. they are two very different items.

    if you are going to work in ny, then you need to get a cvs, even to endorse.

    and please be aware, that i have not seen one att issued to anyone that took the nle exam in june, 2006 and then applied afterwards to a state. have only seen them if the nurse applied before they took that exam.

    nothing is going to be fast right now. period.

    Filipino RNs nowadays apply for either Vermont or New Mexico and many of them are posting that it only takes about 2-3 mos. because they don't require any service from CGFNS to be made eligible. They then endorse to another state that doesn't also require any service from CGFNS such as CA.

    There will also be instances that it is better to just apply directly to the State BON you would like to be licensed to, esp. for those State BONs that require CGFNS' CES such as NJ, FL, IL to name a few.

    If you'll do a search here, you'll come upon threads and posts on how to apply to those 2 BON.
    NM would still require something from cgfns, you would still need to get the credentials evaluation service but you would no longer have to take the certification program/exam.

    NM hasn't required the CES for some time now. If you take time to read the new threads here about applying to NM none of the posters that recently applied to NM did the CES from CGFNS. The transcripts are directly sent by your school to the NM Board of Nursing. You can refer to NM BON website.

    This is just to clarify things so that new posters who have plans to apply to NM won't get confused. Thanks.

    Here's the link for the requirements for foreign nurses. http://www.bon.state.nm.us/forms/NonUSgrads.pdf

    This is the link for NM's website as well: http://www.bon.state.nm.us/
