NCLEX in Illinois

  1. 0
    Hello,

    I'm waiting for CGFNS evaluation - it already took 8 months, they send 5 letters to my school - all with wrong addresses. Anyway, hopefully I'll get it soon. Please answer if IL Nursing Board will also need any additional proofs of my credentials/cleasses/credits/etc.? I've heard NY board did not give permission after CGFNS evaluation and send additional requestsv to school...does it happen to all boards in all cases? I'm US citizen it it's important and need no visa support.

    Thanks a lot!

    The CES report is the evaluation and breakdown of your nurse training so I doubt you will need further verification however the BON will make a decision based on everything you have sent them and what your report states

    You should call CGFNS-CES and ask them what need to be requested from your school. You can help them by contacting directly to your school to request the needed information. Remember that you are only given 12 months to complete CES, if not your order will expire and you have to apply for reprocess again. Also take into consideration that the school needs some fees in order to process your request.

    I'm calling them every other day. They are extremely unprofessional...they could not wrire correct address on the envelope when they send a letter to my school, then they said they don't believe I gave them correct school address, tried to find it on their own, and send it to wrong address again. It keeps going all wrong...But I'm trying to fugure out if I should expect same thing with IL BON after I'll have my credentials evaluated through CGFNS.

    Did you ask CGFNS-CES what's the purpose of their correspondence to your school? Are they requesting other requirements like your transcripts? If you know what they want, you can communicate directly with your school. I think this is better that allowing CGFNS-CES to send the letter (request) to your school. If you have some correction regarding your documents like the address of your school, they will not allow to correct the address through phone conversation rather they want you to write a request letter indicating the correct information.

    On the other hand, If you want to check ILLINOIS licensing process then call Continental Testing Services (CTS) not the IL BON.

    CVS CGFNS do all the leg work, CES you are responsible for sending in documents so can have more control over forms etc. However if NY is your end goal you will still have to meet CVS regardless if you have a license in another state

    i'm not sure but i think that upon applying to take NCLEX in illinois, you have to send another form (CT-NUR) back to your licensing agency in your country, for them to fill out and return to CTS. i have just emailed CTS about this. it's a headache since my credentials evaluation is complete and already proves that i am licensed in another country. however, it doesn't seem like CTS or the IL nursing board need additional credentials from your school, once your evaluation is done.
