I am a BSN graduate from the Philippines and currently residing in Dallas, TX. I applied for Credential Evaluation Service (CES)- Professional report with CGFNS, I want to be license in Texas and CES is one of their requirements. I have already submitted all the requirements. Last week I received a letter from the CGFNS regarding my License Validation form, they mentioned that they received it from the licensing authority in the Philippines but they did not accept it because it doesn't have my professional title which is because I did not took the nursing licensure exam in the Philippines. I was wondering if they could still push through with the credential evaluation even without the license validation form? Please help... what should I do?
Well, good for you! I did not take the licensure exam back in Phils. cause I am a U.S citizen. Prc won't allow me to take it. It is part of their regulations that only Filipino citizens will be allowed to take it.
P.S: Stop being critical to other people's grammar. u r a nurse be therapeutic at least.

Like you, i also did not take the local board but having the concurrency problem here in California. So what i can say, is contact texas board and cgfns to verify if the PHilippine license was really required and tell them the reason why you did not have it. I am not sure but it might be the same with California that a philippine license is not required ,only a letter of explanation...
