    also, i just called cgfns and asked if they can use the documents that was used from CES before. coz i had CES a year ago. they said no, CVS is different and cgfns still needs to request from my schools and PRC. anyway thanks so much for your prompt response!

    I find that strange as the transcripts are the same for CVS as they are for CES. Only difference may be form that is completed

    another question my friends.
    in applying for NY as registered nurse, do i need to submit original TOR and copy of Diploma from the school i went to in the philippines?
    or do i just need to submit a copy of the Diploma?
    and which should i do first, submit the ny application or do the online courses?
    note: i have already submitted my application for CVS and they will be mailing it to my schools soon since they just received my application yesterday.
    thanks!

    CVS means CGFNS is required to obtain all relevant documents you do not submit anything

    Friends, i need help, i am from the philippines and an NCLEX passer. i already have my Social Security but the BON told me that I have to send an application again to them w/c includes the application form and the FBI fingerprint card. My question is, I am a non-U.S. citizen currently here in the U.S., how do I get my fingerprints taken by the FBI? I don't think they will allow me since I am not in their system since I am a non-U.S. citizen. The fingerprint card i passed before was done by the NBI in the philippines because at that time, I was still in the Philippines. So how do I get my fingerprints to the fingerprint card now?

    Thanks!
    Hi machonapapapa. What is your immigration status? Is it immigrant visa or tourist visa? If you are on a working visa approved by the Department of Homeland Security / Immigration, you can get SSN.

    silverdragon,
    thanks for your quick response. my question is if you know if NY board of nursing needs the copy of TOR and DIPLOMA too.
    and also, in anyone's opinion, which is easier, TOEFL or IELTS Academic. For some reasons, I was told by Nevada State board of Nursing, they need ACADEMIC EXAMS of IELTS, not the General Training Exams.

    Thanks my co nurses!

    CGFNS via CVS will ask for all necessary documents like TOR. There are a few places that ask for Academic level instead of general as it is felt you should have a better command of English due to nature of job and contact with population

    FORM 1
    1. Item 17 - schools attended..
    I am a masters graduate, do i still need to put it under "OTHER POST SECONDARY COURSE"?

    FORM 3
    1. where to address and send the form? and if i am not mistaken, 60 dollars will be the fee for such?

    thanks!

Your credentials have been verified and CGFNS will be sent to new york state for evaluation against new york's licensure requirements. The next step of your application is eligibility application."
