    Thanks a lot. I have sent my application, finger print and fees. I have question though; I haven't found any form for SSN. I want to tell them that I don't have one. All I found is this like regarding SSN for international nurses http://www.idfpr.com/Renewals/apply/FORMS/CGFNS_02.pdf
    Please help me
    Illinois board of nursing will allow you to sit for nclex without SSN , USA valid SSN only required during your license number renewal . They will give you temporary SSN number to appear for your exam . But when I applied for 2nd time via online they asked me to fill SSN with all 9s this only for those who does not have their SSN number . I appeared my exam with out SSN number when I got my result in that from I saw last 4digit of temporary SSN number.

    I know that you should have an account with the BON (you already applied) because they'd be sending that to them electronically. So, I guess it's better to do it in the suggested order of things.

    I remember receiving a letter from the BON that they have received my application and they need the fingerprints. That's when I went to Chicago to do mine. Because I know the fingerprints are only available for a period of time.
    How about if I plan to endorse my nevada RN license to illinois? I am also a philippine grad.

    Then follow Illinois' instructions in licensure via endorsement. Heard it takes a while so start soon.

    Hi everybody, CGFNS just received all my requirements for the CES 2 weeks ago. How long should I wait before they issue the report to ILDPR? Coz I want to do this online review which expires after 90 days, I want to make sure by the time this review expires I can sit for my NCLEX...considering I don't have any problems with my transcripts.

    And when should I submit my application to CTS?

    You can always start studying now. I know the permit is valid for 90 days. So, you'd be tight on schedule if you study later.

    Wait for the CGFNS to be done. There might be problems. Assemble your requirements/packet for CTS while waiting. So you can send it in once the CGFNS report is ready. Remember, the CGFNS report is available for 120 days.

    Hi! i hope you're still active here but i really need some help. Im currently living here in IL. I just came here last Nov. I am a Registered Nurse in the Philippines and planning to take the State Board. From the posts that I've read, I need a CES Professional Report which I am doing right now. I made an CGFNS connect account and while answering i becoming more and more confused. After sending the application online do i still need to mail my requirements? like my transcripts? and do i still need my highschool diploma? because i only have my college diploma with me. i hope you can help me. anyone please?

    For Internationally Educated Applicants:
    A registered or practical nurse who graduated from a nursing program outside of the United States or Canada and who is licensed by completing the NCLEX in another jurisdiction of the United States may be granted licensure in the Commonwealth without examination, if the applicant’s program of study is deemed equivalent to the program of study required in the Commonwealth at the time the program was completed. The Board will base equivalency of the international nursing program upon an evaluation performed by the Commission on Graduates of Foreign Nursing Schools International (CGFNS). If you are an international graduate, contact CGFNS, at 215-349-8767 or at CGFNS International | Global Credibility |. Request that a CGFNS Credentials Evaluation Service (CES) “Professional Report” be sent directly to the Pennsylvania Board of Nursing. Please note that completion of this report may take several months. Begin this process immediately.
