CES...just confused

  1. My friend and I are applying for CES thru online—with my friend, prior to her nursing degree she had taken up a course for 1year while with mine, had another degree.
    And these courses were non-Nursing education,should we include these or just our Nursing degree?
    Thank you to anyone who can help…

    I think better to include all than cause a delay

    Thank you ms.Silverdragon.I have another few questions...
    I included the 2 schools for my nursing degree and for the other degree, thus I have 2 request forms for academic records--but everything is integrated into 1 TOR.
    1.) should I still ask the school for my non-Nursing education to fill-up the CES's request for academic records ; or
    2.) just use 1 request form for my nursing degree for the integrated TOR

    Thanks again.

    I think as long as everything is on the one TOR you should be OK however any questions should be asked directly to the board

    keep calling them--no one would answer but just the voice machine.
    and worse---i made mistakes online.
    have not paid yet but had the "order number"...but can't delete the mistakes I made.
    someone advised me to just abandon totally the account..not to cancel the order and make another new account and redo everything...is my advisor correct?

    Any mistake made online can only be changed by writing to them

    Hi there!

    I just learned today that SSN is now required for Vermont applicants.
    I have been issued a CES Professional report which Vermont is the recipient…did not apply yet to Vermont…then few days ago they changed their policy – obviously as an IEN, am no longer qualified as an applicant now.
    The CES report for Vermont has a time frame of 1 year, basing on this…the validity of my CES report is until August 2012.

    a.) does CES has validity period or can I still use this CES report for Vermont on applying to other State that still accepts IENs?

    b.) anyone who can suggest States that still accept IENs?
    a State that requiring CES as part of the application process…

    Am confused again…I appreciate anyone who could straighten things out for me and Thank You!

    Hello there,
    I'm planning on applying for the CGFNS in Nevada so I can take the NCLEX. The requirements only mentioned of a CES and it doesn't say anything about CGFNS examination. So does that mean I don't have to take the exam? I was also planning to take my masters program there.

    It's only a CES report not a qualifying exam and you need to take IELTS too.Good luck!

    no cgfns exam in nevada
    azil2010, NV requires CES, so you can definitely use it but sadly, i guess they need SSN too before they can process your application, thou not quite sure. best to call the NV BON. call tuesday (US time) because monday is a holiday, they're close.

    international grads are basically just an RN when they pass the NCLEX here in NV, if you're looking to take masteral classes, you gotta have a BSN from a US accredited institution (based on nurses experience -- i come from a long family of PI educated nurses). thinking of the same, would love to specialize on psych nursing but i'm still far from there..working on my reviews for my NCLEX RN

    and like i said, when in doubt, call NV BON -- look for ms ***
