    I also got my bsn from the philippines, did you have to directly contact your school for them to send the transcript or would they respond to cgfns request?

    Im pretty sure the philippine schools have a different way of processing things

    Hi kababayan. CGFNS-CVS doesn't require you to have a license, they are just asking if you have one. I applied to them 6 months ago without taking the NLE back home. They waived the license requirement on my CGFNS account. I got my eligibility from NY bon about a week ago. Good luck.
    hi! did u apply online or through paper application? i hope ull reply thanks

    Your right kababayan, i applied my cvs ny 2 mos ago, i had a phil lic but already expired, that was my concern before too, but they waived the lic req, right now everything was submitted to CGFNS including the one needed from school, im just waiting for the decision.. Its still "waiting for approval".

    I have a question, does it take time before they gonna approve or submit it to ny ed?

    Thanks..

    Nothing stopping you from giving the school a heads up that the request is coming in

    Hi everyone,

    i hope i am not bombing on this thread. My query does relate to the main question anyway.

    i have recently took an interest in filing for a license in NY. i was just wondering, since i am a foreign nurse who was educated outside the US, if i should file for the CGFNS CVS first or file it at the same time as my NY board of nursing NCLEX application. I do know that the CVS can take time, but does anyone know hoe long the nclex application will be held by the ny licensing board while waiting on the CVS? I

    I just do not want to file for both at the same time then find out once my CVS is done that my NCLEX application has lapsed.

    Thanks for all the input regarding my query. Cheers!

    Better to do CVS and then send application to NY a couple of months later

    Hi does anyone know if the CVS for NY require both the transcripts from the registrar and the RLE summary?? i only ask because my RLE summary is not issued by the registrar in my school..so if it is required i have to let the nursing office know and have them forward it to the registrar for when they send my transcripts..thanks for whatever information you can give me about this matter =0)
