CES for Illinois nclex application

  1. 0 Hi All,

    im just new here, it's nice there is such informative and useful site like this.

    I have question regarding CES in applying nclex for Illinois. I've that the requirments are CES and TOEFL. I have my CES but i'm a little bit confuse because my CES was Healthcare Profession & Science Report but in the requirements i've read the needed CES is Healthcare Profession & Science Course-By-Course Report. i just want to know if my CES will be accepted? i hope you could give me an idea on this.

    thanks

    I'm going to move this to the International forum so that you can get better advice.

    I would suggest you check with the BON because they are the ones that make the final decision. I do know that the course by course is a bit more in-depth and that is what the BON may be looking for

    Hi there!
    For I know, your report will be accepted by IDFPR. That's the one they actually require. It's a little bit confusing because of the "course-by-course" used by IDFPR and CGFNS. If you haven't notice, there is an instruction in http://www.idfpr.com/DPR/APPLY/FORMS/CGFNS_02.pdf and it say there that "Request the "Full Education" report only if you think you will be attending graduate school in the United States some time in the future".
    To have a sure answer, contact Continental Testing Services (CTS) :c/o Susan Zajda

    Have you submitted your application and fee at CTS? For I know, you have to wait for their approval before you can register for the NCLEX-RN exam at Pearson-Vue. If your CES report indicates that your education was conducted in english with english textbook then, probably your TOEFL will be waived. Inquire at CTS for sure answer. I already posted the contact number. Where are you from, by the way?

    Not yet. I only submitted the CT-NUR form at CTS. The rest of the form were deferred because of the TOEFL. On my CES, it was stated that my education was conducted in English with English textbook.

    Did you apply and pay online (CTS website)? If not, you should because they will not process your application until you pay the corresponding fee of 88USD. Are you educated outside US? For I know, the licensing body of your current license will be the one that will submit the CT-NUR to CTS.

    As a Foreign trained applicant we generally say wait for eligibility from the BON before registering with pearsonvue just in case there are any issues that need to be resolved.

    here is the thing, last year of may, i filed my application for ces which is a requirement in nclex il. the type of ces is healthcare profession & science report (as per nclex il application form, page 4 c-1) by august of the same year, cgfns sent me a mail telling that i have met all the requirements and my ces has been approved. would that also mean that they have submitted a copy of the report to the il-bon?
    last year of november, i started to process my nclex application. on the application form, i noticed that there's another requirement which i need to have- and that is the certification of passage of toefl. by that time, i was already preparing my application. i submitted the ct-nur form on the licensing body here in the philippines and they submitted the form to cts. the four-page application form, ed-nur, and the fp-nur are not yet been submitted to cts because i still need to have certification of passage of toefl. however, the fingerprint card i requested has not also been submitted to the approved livescan vendors certified by il state police. will it be possible if i will submit all the forms (four-page appliction,ed-nur,fp-nur) without the toefl certifacate then once i passed toefl, i'll just send the certificate to cts? or they should be submitted at one time?
    i also need some help regarding the application form of nclex il.
    a. part i of the four-page application form.
    -should i write the total fee of $291 ($91 for cts and $200 for ncsbn on the reference sheet page 14.)?
    b. partvii of the four-page application form (examination coding information)
    -how can i fill in that part? does it mean that i should call cts and register for the examination then submit the licensure/examination application to cts?
    another thing that really makes me confuse is the cgfns certicate and the visa screen program certification stated by the form[color=sandybrown] (page 5,d.)
    [color=#f4a460]
    if you could shed some light or provide me the steps i would really appreciate it. thanks alot for your help.

    cts/idfpr will download the ces report from cgfns website. your ces report is already available however your application and fees are not yet with cts so they doesn't care for your ces report at the moment. even your ct-nur, cts might be confused on what to do with your ct-nur form because you don't have application with them. regarding toefl, during your application with toefl you will be indicating your result recipient so don't worry on how you are going to submit the toefl result.

    i suggest that you have to read the instruction sheet of illinois carefully before you take some steps so that you will not be wasting your time and money.

    you don't need to accomplished the ed-nur because this is just for those educated in the us and its territories.

    the things that you have to submit at cts are application form (4 pages), fp-nur and the money order with an amount of 88usd (91usd if you pass your application after 07/01/10).

    the things that you are going to submit with the fingerprinting agency (accurate biometrics/art's investigations
    or identix) are the fingerprinting card/s and the fingerprinting fee (money order). not the state police.

    mail them separately.

    you will be paying the 200usd for ncsbn at pearson-vue. once cts approved your application you will be receiving an approval letter which indicates that you are allowed to take the nclex-rn exam. at that time you will register at pearson-vue (the one and only exam provider for nclex which is trusted by ncsbn). you will pay usd200 plus usd150 if you take the exam outside us.

    in your query about page 5.d. it says there, in lieu of......meaning instead of......if and only if you don't have cgfns-ces report (which is discuss in 5.c), cgfns-certificate and visa screen certificate can be used.
