CVS-NY missing request - page 3

Good day. I'm starting to get worried about my CVS-NY application. Its either CGFNS is sending the request to a wrong address, or things keep getting lost in the mail, or my school is not processing the transcript request from... Read More

    you should fill up the authorization form and give it to your school and request for a certified copy of your TOR. Ask them how much you should pay for mailing. I did not have a problem with my school because they knew how to process matters like this. When I submitted my authorization form , the registrar personnel furnished me a form to fill-up. They told me to comeback after a week and that's it. You are not supposed to send your application, it's the school's responsibility. you do the same procedure when you were applying for your NCLEX or CG like requesting for TOR. Hope I did some help
    im still confused.. i thought that with CVS-NY everything will be done by CGFNS.. all i have to do is send the authorization forms to them because they will be the one to contact my school and the licensing authority for the transcript and license validations..

    Read the handbook on CVS and it should explain everything you have to do

    i have read the handbook and i know that i have to send to cgfns the notarized application as well as authorization forms for the school and licensing authority.. and just wait for cgfns to do everything.. i was just confused about the other poster's experience where he/she said that s/he was done with cvs and did the request of tor from his/her school..

    Ok, so as not to make things complicated, proceed with your application then wait for any reply from CGFNS. Why not give it a try. I did the same thing before, my agency in NY sent me th CVS application packet and advised me to send back the filled-up application forms to them. I was complacent that everything went well until after I think 1-2 months my agency adviced me to call the school if they already sent my TOR to CG. What I did is I fillep-up another Authorization for Acadaemic Records form but this time I send it directly to my school. The next e-mail I received is from NYSED informing me that my application is still incomplete because i need to take reporting for child abuse. So that means my CVS application is approved. I think i a made myself clear. Regards

    to xxjjccbb : sorry for not replying to your pms (i cannot send pms yet because i have few posts ) anyways...what i did was i filled in the authorization letters for the verification (for the tor and for the prc license) then sent it to cgfns (because that's what i understood when i read the handbook >_< with that i also mailed a notarized application form (all of these forms are at the back of the handbook) like you, i think cgfns is the one to contact our school and prc. now, my current status is waiting for documents. i received mail too that they received my authorization letter forms already. but i am not yet done with my cvs (since they have not received my verified tor and license yet i guess). ) now i need clarification if what i did is just right (because after reading and reading the handbook...i still find it quite confusing ) what confuses me is because chokyali said that he/she paid the school, so does that mean we really have to go to our schools for them to process it? i thought that everything is between cgfns and our schools/prc

    @chokyali: yes i applied online. ooh...so i have to send my school the authorization letter too? does that mean i have to print a new one again (the one i sent to cgfns)? then i'll just ask a form from school right? (sorry for the confusion)

    really sorry for the confusion but i am really thankful for everyone's reply

    @kristov: yes that's exactly what i did too.. my online status says waiting for required documents.. i dont know if they have sent out the requests to my school and to PRC.. do we receive notification for that? i am well aware that the processing time for CVS is about 6-8 months (accdg to the posts i read here).. and with my order just started last december, i know i still have to wait for a long time.. i am just concerened because i already submitted my application to NY BON i know now that i should have waited a couple of months at least before i passed my application to them but i already did.. i just hope my application would not go missing by the time CVS is already complete.. hehehe.. i was also amazed at how chokyali did it.. if i knew that could be done, i would have done it that way. at least we know that the TOR and license have already been sent to CGFNS.. let's update each other abt our orders, if its ok with u.. goodluck to us..:heartbeat

    The letter of CGFNS to your school is lost in the mail. That happened to my friend. The company will send another request to your school, don't worry.

    With the PRC, you should not have any problems. They will receive it and send it on their own. They know about CVS-NY very well. I just suggest you contact the person in change in PRC, so you can know if they have received/sent it.

    With your school, I suggest you do the same. Contact the person in charge and ask for developments. Technically, the school should be the one to send the TOR and you shouldn't be sending it yourself.

    Sharing my experience.
    I applied to NY Board of nursing on November 2007. I got my ATT on June 2008. I took the exam on June 2008 also. It took me 7 months or so. At that time I thought my application process was already long! (I kept comparing to california applicants)

    Please note that CGFNS is a big company but understaffed.

    @xxjjccbb Don't worry about NY BON loosing your application. Once they received it, it's valid for a year. If you sent your application through registered mail, there is less chance of it getting lost. I sent my application to NY BON the same month I applied for online CVS.

    @Kristov No. You don't have to send another authorization letter to your school. You shouldn't order a TOR from your school. It should be CGFNS ordering from your school in your behalf. What chokyali did was not the "normal" CVS application.

    @ Kristov I just want to clarify something , I did not pay the school, That payment I made was for the postal service for my TOR to send it to CGFNS

    There's nothing wrong with what I did, I just requested for my TOR with the verification form for transcripts that we fill up then send it to CG then CG will send it to our respective schools . (FYI I did not apply online ) I did that because maybe we have same experiences, lost in the mail or the school did not bother to respond.I may have sent it personally but that was accrdg. to the registrar personnel's instruction. It was legal The envelope was sealed with the school's logo and if ever that was not normal CGFNS should have informed me.

    By the way, I mailed it in the school's post office not outside, I'm sure CG will not accept it.

    okei thanks for clarifying that then

    @jpsan pedro: oh no, i hope mine did not get lost in the mail. I'll contact my school again and ask if they received my forms already. I need to know how to contact PRC though >_< I don't know the right person to inquire about it, by chance you know who I should look for? thanks so much for your reply. helped a lot by the way...are you working at New York already? Your CVS is done already right?

    @xxjjccbb : thanks much for the replies. Yeah let's update each other we applied almost at the same time so yah...I hope we get through with this haha. Oh you applied already to NY BON...that i have to do next month i guess (I don't have the money yet to pay for the NY BON application huhu) God Bless to us!
