    How long is a peice of string? Average if 3-4 months but a lot will depend on how quickly CGFNS receives your documents

    Michigan requires both a CES report and a language proficiency exam so keep that in mind when estimating how long it would take from the time you file for the service through CGFNS to the time you receive your ATT. A CES report, if you opt to pay for the Expedite Service, will normally take around 2 weeks from the time YOUR SCHOOL sends your TOR.

    So let's say you've already registered, paid the fees (with expedite) through CGFNS and your school sends your TOR on Monday June 18 then expect the TOR to reach CGFNS in 5-7 business days. Worse case scenario it takes 7 days and reaches CGFNS on Wednesday June 27 then expect another 5-10 business days to process. From my experience filing my files and a friend of mine's after it took around 3 weeks until CGFNS issued the report.

    Once the report is received by your respected Board of Nursing then expect it to be posted (assuming you've already registered and paid the Board's fees) within 5 days and the eligibility to be released soon after. Silverdragon102 is right about the 3-4 months turn around but with CGFNS's expedite service it can be a lot less. Please let me know if you need more help.

    I'm planning on working on my CES but I'm kinda confuse right now. I just got married, should I first change my maiden name on my RN license before getting my CES from cgfns? Thanks

    Well, that's a tough choice. If you applied with to CGFNS using your maiden name and later on get married (or legally change your last name to your husband's) then you would have to through a rigorous process to have that change. With that said, you have two choices..

    1. Apply using your maiden name and request for a name change after by writing to CGFNS and presenting your marriage certificate.

    2. Legally change your last name to your husband's then proceed with your CES report.

    Either way should yield the same result. In my opinion though, I would stick with the first option simply because your TOR/license are consistent with your maiden name.

    I agree better to stick with 1st option and then change name once meet state requirements and passed NCLEX
