NY BON Visa Screen + credentials verification?

  1. Hi

    I have submitted my Visa Screen application form. I am thinking of applying to the NY Bon (after hearing from here that it is the best way to go) and looking at their site am I right in thinking that I also have to complete the Credentials Verification form aswell? Or was this included in the visa screen application?

    Anybody know what the Florida BON are like? ie how fast etc

    yours confusedly

    I was going through the Florida Board in 2003 but had a problem with the credentials because being from the UK I didn't have a high school diploma and that is one of their requirements, so I swapped to Georgia board which took about 4 months to get by ATT. Hope this helps.

    For NY BON, Credentials Verification form is not included in the visa screen application. You have to submit it to CGFNS.

    Mmmm it might be easier to go through anouther BON then. Perhaps just decide where I want to go in the US and apply to that one. Ooh no not anouther decision to make!!

    the thing with going through NY BON and cgfns is that cgfns do all the chasing of transcripts and other stuff needed. NY has a special CES. If you see the thread Why is it easier in NY by nutella. Suzanne gives some excellent reasons for going that route

    I was going to go through an agency OGP but after a lot of thought and taking advice from this site I decided to go it alone. After reading the threads on here I reasiled that it is achievable to go alone and then non of the disadvantages of going with an agency.

    I havn't started studying for NCLEX yet tho!!

    If you are getting an initial license in NY, there are only three documents that need to be filled out. The actual application for NY, plus the Visa Screen Certificate application, and the Credentials Verification for NY. The last two are available on the CGFNS web-site to be downloaded. As easy as that. THat is what you have paid an agency to do for you....Even if the money is coming from the hospital, it still could have been in your pocket, one way or another................
