RN or LPN equivalent?
- 0Mar 19, '13 by RetrogrlHi everyone,
I'm a nurse educated in Ukraine (2 year nursing college) and I'm planning to get a licensed in the state of NH but I'm not sure, based on my education, which equivalent do I hold RN or LPN. Also does anyone know if I need to take TOEFL to apply for license in NH or maybe the process of applying for NH license for nurses educated abroad? I couldn't find any info on their BON website and no one answers the emails I sent any information would be appreciated!
Thanks in advance

According to application process you just need CES report from CGFNS or passed CGFNS exam (these are 2 different processess offered by CGFNS) No mention on English exam
Graduates of foreign registered nurse programs must submit official evidence of successful completion of the
Commission of Foreign Nursing Schools (CGFNS) examination or CGFNS full course by course credentials evaluation.
Canadian educated nurses are not considered foreign for this application.
