hi yamkins, i'm a rn in phils. too, i want to apply to the bon of illinois but confuse with their application form and the steps. hoping you can help me with some questions...
Since i got a CES with ERES already, do i have to submit CT-NUR & ED-NUR together with my application form? The CT-NUR form also state that completed form should not be return to applicant...
also did you take toefl? because i did not but i read http://www.idfpr.com/Renewals/apply/FORMS/CGFNS_02.pdf - toefl/ielts may be waived if CES states that education was done in english with english text book..
have you submitted all your requirements? how long does it take for the board to issue eligibility?
Hi, jergen! Yes, I am now licensed as an RN in IL. I was actually surprised that I received the eligibility within 1-2 day/s after I submitted everything. I was expecting it to be longer. My ATT also arrived in my email the day after I scheduled the exam.
You don't need ED-NUR. That's just for US educated nurses. CT-NUR, you fill out the part you need and then submit that to PRC and then PRC would send that to IL directly for a fee. (Read my previous comments to Raiych in page 1 of this thread).
I already have TOEFL before so I just used it since it's valid. My copy of the CES actually says English and English textbooks in the Language of Instruction part.
If you want to, you can take the TOEFL when they tell you that you lack it. (They'd send a letter stating they received your application and missing requirements). I would contact them to be really sure about it. However, IL has the reputation of being difficult to get a hold of.
