    Hi guys I'm a Filipina from NE too I applied in CA BON last Jan. 2011 but end up applying for CGFNS Certification Program here in NE. CA BON required me so many documents that are impossible to provide so I gave up and start over again in CGFNS. I hope you could email me pinx23 and share your experience with me... I rarely see Filipinos around here and hopefully we could get in touch Thanks and goodluck to you application...

    the school where you from should be the one to send the Academic records/transcripts and license/registration/diploma to CGFNS.
    Hello. May I please know if you were required by CGFNS to submit a copy of your College Nursing Diploma? It would take a little while for my school to release diplomas. So I don't know if I should go on already with the CGFNS application without my nursing diploma yet. Thank you, thank you for any response

    Yes CGFNS is asking for my College Diploma.. They have an application in there whereas you have to fill it up, print it and send it to your school. Then your school should be the one to send it back to CGFNS.. You should get an application first so you can fill up the informations

    Hi everyone! Hope you could help me. I'm still here in Ph and my Uncle would help me going to US and that I should take NCLEX first. This forum helped me a lot with the CGFNS process, thanks to pinx23. I tried asking help from NEAC in Manila and it would costs rougly like $80 just for their fee.Is it better if I will just apply it by myself or it's more convenient to seek help from them for the needed CES from CGFNS? Thank you fellow RNs! God Bless

    Not sure how your uncle is going to help you get to the US but expect a long wait.

    All instructions on what to do for CES and CGFNS will be in their handbook which you can find on their website

    Hi! I don't know when you'll get this but hopefully soon! I took the Philippine NLE in November 2009 but never did the oath taking and registration at PRC, I didn't think I would need it since I moved in the US July 2010 but now that I am trying to get the CGFNS, they want the registration/license number. Can I still do the registration even it's already 2 years that have passed??

    Were on the same boat! I also took the NLE last 2009 didn't do the oathtaking and registration at PRC. What I did was I had my mom go to the PRC office and with her was a signed authorization letter from me so she could obtain my registration/PRC ID. I'm also currently in the process of getting my CGFNS requirements done but due to the fact that I got married here it's been proving such a hassle. I know it's all worthit in the end. By the way, I moved to the US March 2010. If you get this just pm me we'll go through this together.
