    You can not get a US SSN until in the US with a valid work/immigrant visa

    You have to take the IELTS before New Mex can allow you to sit for the NCLEX. Another thing is you have to go through an accredited credentialing agency first like CGFNS for the assessment of your papers.

    Yes, you need the CES first and you need to sit for IELTS. During my time, there's no CES and IELTS requirements, I guess you check with other states because New Mexico is costly for NCLEX application not unless you really want to be licensed there. Best of luck to you.

    Take the time to read the NM website it tells you what you need to do

    CGFNS offer a lot more than the CGFNS website. If your report shows that all your nursing education was in English then the exam may be waivered. Suggest you read the last page of this link http://www.bon.state.nm.us/forms/Exa...ril%202010.pdf

    Not referring to CGFNS exam but CES, one of the many services the CGFNS is offering. Do some research and study the NM BON website as suggested by Silverdragon.
