Foreign educated RN, with Ca license wanting NY license

  1. 0
    Quick question,

    I have recently passed the NCLEX, I now hold my Ca license, and want to apply for my NY license. I was educated in Australia but am an American Citizen. Does anybody know if I will still have to go through the CGFNS process with NY state as this was not needed in Ca.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. So confusing from state to state!

    Thanks

    Here's from this page on NY's board website that talks about verifying your CA license (kinda like endorsement).

    Nurses Licensed in Another State
    If you are licensed as a nurse in another state, you must provide the New York State Education Department with verification of that licensure. The National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN) handles verification of licensure for a majority of states through their Nurse System (Nursys). You can check to see if the state(s) where you are licensed as a nurse participates in Nursys by visiting their Web site at www.nursys.com or by calling them at 1-866-819-1700.
    If the state(s) where you are licensed as a nurse participates in Nursys, you must request verification of your licensure from Nursys, not the state(s).
    If your state(s) of licensure does (do) not appear on the Nursys list, you must use the Verification of Other Professional Licensure/Certification form (Form 3) to verify your licensure to New York State.
    Please note, if you hold any other professional licenses in states other than New York, you must also use Form 3 to verify that licensure to New York State.

    But they also said of you were educated outside of USA, you have to go through the CGFNS process. See this link from their boards: NYS Nursing:Application Forms RN & LPN
    If your education was obtained in another country, do not use Form 2. You must have your educational credentials verified by CGFNS, an independent credentials verification organization, before the New York State Education Department can determine if your credentials meet New York State's requirements for licensure. See "Verifying Education Credentials From Non-U.S. Programs". Contact CGFNS for the forms and procedures for the independent verification of your education credentials (see contact information).

    Maybe just call them to verify? I'm not sure.

    Yes you still have to go through CVS when trained outside the US regardless if a USC or not when endorsing a license
