Hi! I'm a foreign educated nurse planning to take the NCLEX. I have already applied online for a Credentials Evaluation Service (CES) Report and have read the requirements for the CES and I would just want to clarify this requirement: "Documentation of your secondary school education". Does it mean CGFNS would still require transcripts from my secondary school/high school, aside from the diploma? And if so, could I just request the transcripts from my secondary school and I would be the one to send it to CGFNS? Thanks..
I went to an American high school up until the first half of my senior year (2004) then went back to the Philippines (personal reasons). I had people tell me I can already take a college entrance test without a diploma since high school in the Philippines is only 4 years/lacking 2 years. I had my high school transcript evaluated by the university and they found it sufficient enough to meet the Philippine high school standard. (this was before the k-12 program was implemented) I got accepted then stopped school for a couple years. Went back to school and now Im on my last year of nursing school here and moving back to the states upon graduation. Started to look up requirements needed for a foreign educated nurse and the first steps to take. And one of the requirements for CGFNS CES is a photocopy of my secondary school diploma. What can I pass in place of it? Is it really needed? A letter from the university maybe? Or can I use a different evaluation service? I would appreciate it if anyone could shed some light on this. Thanks in advance!
