    You need to be a US citizen, legal permanent resident or a noncitizen in the US on a valid work / immigrant visa (authorized to work by department of homeland security/USCIS).

    If you do not fall into any of the above categories you do not meet the qualifications to be issued a social security number.

    CVS is required by all applicants that trained outside the US whether as initial application or endorsing a license. CVS is done by CGFNS you just have to complete the application on the CGFNS website. Be aware that application takes between 6-8 months depending on how timely CGFNS receive back the requested documents

    I have seen alot of members who are asking for a STEP BY STEP guide on how to apply for a New York License
    most of them are experiencing the problem i have experienced before. I took up the NCLEX-RN last February 09, 2011 for the CALIFORNIA STATE BOARD which i fortunately passed the downside is I'm from the Philippines

    THE PROBLEM: CALIFORNIA BRN IS REQUIRING SSN BEFORE ISSUING A LICENSE

    TAKE NOTE: GUYS ESPECIALLY MY FILIPINO BROTHERS AND SISTERS we can not refer to this process as "ENDORSING/ENDORSEMENT of LICENSE" simply because we do not have an active and valid LICENSE TO ENDORSE..

    what i immediately did was to go to NY'S website( http://www.op.nysed.gov/prof/nurse/ ) and contact NY BON for some questions.

    THIS IS HOW I STARTED MY PROCESS (just sharing)

    To be licensed in NY by "endorsement" of your CA NCLEX-RN

    STEP 1: You need to download FORM 1- Application for Licensure and First Registration

    http://www.op.nysed.gov/prof/nurse/nurse1.pdf

    ****All applicants for licensure must complete this form and submit it with the licensure and registration fee of $143.00 directly to the Office of the Professions at the mailing address at the end of Form 1. PLEASE DO NOT SEND CASH. Make checks payable to the New York State Education Department, (to my Filipino friends my bank BDO does not issue money order they only do demand draft which means no refunds, PLEASE make sure that you READ INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY NOT ONLY FROM THIS INFO BUT FROM THE FORM ITSELF). You must answer all questions and provide all information requested unless otherwise indicated. Failure to complete all required parts of the application will delay its review. Form 1 must be signed in the presence of a Notary Public.

    STEP 2: Download Form 3 - Certification of Approval of Nursing Program and/or License Status or Licensing Examination Results

    http://www.op.nysed.gov/prof/nurse/nurse3.pdf

    ****This form must be submitted by the licensing authority, I paid $60 for this. Use this form if you are applying for licensure by endorsement of a license in another U.S. jurisdiction. Complete Section I and forward this form to the licensing authority of the jurisdiction in which you passed the State Board Test Pool (SBTP) or the National Council Licensure Exam (NCLEX). Ask the licensing authority to complete Sections II and III and submit the completed form directly to the Office of the Professions at the address at the end of the form.


    STEP 3: CGFNS Credentials Verification

    ****If you seek to meet the education requirements for Registered Nurse or Licensed Practical Nurse through a program you completed outside the United States, your educational credentials must be verified by an independent credentials verification organization. For additional information, contact:

    The Commission on Graduates of Foreign Nursing Schools (CGFNS)
    PO Box 8628, Philadelphia, PA 19104-8628
    http://www.cgfns.org/
    Contact numbers can be found through the website

    PLEASE NOTE: This verification process is not the same as CGFNS certification (which is required for Registered Nurse limited permit applicants only). The CGFNS credentials verification process for New York State licensure applicants is a process for verifying the authenticity of your education credentials. It is not an evaluation or certification process.

    *** YOU NEED TO ACCOMPLISH TWO COURSES FOR NY

    SANITATION/INFECTION CONTROL AND CHILD ABUSE

    For information on the Child Abuse course and Infection control, including the exemption form and a list of approved providers, visit their website at

    http://www.op.nysed.gov/training/camemo.htm.

    You may also take this course online at http://www.elearnonline.net,
    click on course offerings, and then click on New York.
    I think i paid around $45 for both of them

    I HOPE I WAS ABLE TO HELP SOME OF YOU GOODLUCK
    Now, the only problem left is CGFNS's slowwwwwwww process anyway i guess i just have to patiently wait...
    Hi! thank you for that helpful information. I have almost the same situation but theres a twist on mine. I passed nclex on 2008 and unfortunately i didnt have my ssn so my file was destroyed. I want to transfer it to new york. Would that still be possible? I read some here that i need to submit some documents again together with my social security number to CA BON. I have my visa already and ill be living in new york this year and eventually ill receive my ssn. Where do i start. Im really confused. thanks!!

    Hi, I know this is quite an old post but I am kind of in a the same situation. I just had my license from Iowa and now I plan to get a license by endorsement in NY. I have read everything that I need to do to proceed with it but my question is, I dont have a SSN, and theres a box in the form #1 asking for the Immigration status. which box should I tick? Im currently in NJ and I have an expired tourist visa.

    Thanks! hope to hear from you!

    You are here illegally then? You might want to consider applying for a license by endorsement as if in the U.S. Illegally you are ineligible. You might consider adjusting to a legal status before drawing attention to your situation. If you put anything other than the truth about your current immigration status (expired tourist visa) your application will be denied for fraud and can affect your license from Iowa as it's considered reportable.
