    I do not think there is livescan outside of the US. If outside of the US then most post fingerprint cards are used

    hello there! there is no live scan vendor here in the philippines. but what you should do is to call idfpr (no. is on their site) or email them (i found an address from posts: FPR.PRFGROUP09@illinois.gov) (another i emailed through their site, go to professionals section, click nurse-rn at the bottom you will see email questions about this profession click that then write your request).i didnt know which way did it, but they did send me the card.to request for a fingerprint card and also include when you email them your mailing address. it usually takes 1-2weeks for you to receive their mail. the fingerprint card is actually the size of a short bond paper but is harder/thicker. when you receive it go to the nearest nbi station ask if they do fingerprinting for us/nclex applicants. mine is free. but to be sure just bring extra money with you it might be a different case considering we have different locations. sorry its kind of hard to type right now, to arrange my comment. but you get the idea. hope this helps.

    Hi,

    I am an American that will be study in Glasgow Scotland for my bachelors in nursing at the University of Glasgow. I start this fall, considering that I do not have a degree yet and I do not have $400 for this fee can anyone tell me if my degree from Glasgow might transfer or be accepted. Has anyone received a bachelors from Glasgow and transferred to the US? I would like to know before I make the trip.

    UK is specialist educated in midwifery, adult, psych, children's, or learning disability (developmental). US & Canada is generalist trained and require theory & clinical in adult, geriatric, obstetrics, pediatric and psych. While the UK has longer and more clinical hours you would not have sufficient clinical & theory in the mandated areas outside your specialist areas and would be required to take additional clinical and theory in the deficient areas before being eligible for licensing by examination as an internationally educated nurse.

    The best advice is to take your course of study in the country where you plan to live and work. It is the only guarantee that your education and clinical practice will qualify you for licensing and able to work as an RN. If you plan to live and work in Scotland/UK go for it! If you plan on working in the U.S. you may want to think carefully as additional coursework and clinical post UK training will be required.

    Hi,
    Thanks for this post it was very helpful. I am a RN in New Zealand starting the application process for my registration to practice in the state of Illinois.
    I just have a couple of questions I am hoping you could help me with...
    Firstly, This process of filling in the CT NUR form is a tad confusing because it asks for your licencing agency (where the applicant was first licensed) to fill in when the applicant sat and passed NCLEX...How can this be completed if we haven't sat NCLEX yet and sat our own national registration exam in NZ??
    Secondly, On alot of the form required for the continental testing service require a SSN.. And it states that if you don't have a SSN (which I dont because I live in NZ) to find it on the idfrpn.com website.. However, I can't find this anywhere! What should I put down?
    Appreciate your help!!

    You can't get a US SSN until in the US on a valid work/immigrant visa. Generally you leave blank when completing forms

    Have you read the very beginning of this step-by-step guidance? You've done more than half way there sort of speak. Simply print out the pages and cross them off as you complete them.

    It shouldn't take anyone more than 30 minutes if that to do most of these parts. Any other questions that have come up as the fingerprint requirements and how to have also been addressed.

    There's no need to use an agency as well. Why pay someone else good money that one could have done so by going thru the original instructions.

    The OP's instructions and other questions asked are pretty much all here in this one thread. Good luck!
