    Hi!
    My name is Claire. I am a french nurse and I applied on CGFNS in Febuary. They received all the documents a few days ago and now my status is "ready for reviews".
    I chose the expedited service review so it shouldn't be too long until the report is sent to the BON.
    My boyfriend lived in Arkansas, but I coulnd't apply to the Arkansas BON because they need a US SSN which I don't have yet. So I have chosen to apply to the Colorado BON. We have friends there and my boyfriend will be able to work there maybe... If not, I am planning on asking for a licensure by endorsement in Arkansas when I'll have a work visa a so a US SSN.
    Anyway, I have a question about my application. What if Colorado decides that I don't have enough hours in one of the specialities? Where and how can I take courses?
    I would like to be ready if it happens and I have no idea about what to do if they tell me that I have to take more courses....
    Do you think you can help me? I hope you understood everything because my english is not perfect!
    Thank you so much in advance for your answer

    I'm looking into applying for NCLEX too. I was denied by the California BON due to discrepancies in my college's curriculum, which I do not understand. My sister graduated from the same institution in 1997 and she's been a nurse in California for 11 years now. I then resorted to applying in Northern Marianas and they require a CES from CGFNS. I too, do not have a Philippines RN license because I was migrating to the US at that time. I didn't have the chance to take the test and because I expected to not take the licensure examination in the Philippines, I didn't complete my 25 cases. I think I lacked 7. Now, my concern is... When I go through this CES, will they, at some point, request for a PRC approved list of my 25 cases? Because I'm not sure if I can complete it or have my clinical instructors sign for it, since I'm already here in the US. HELP!

    what does it mean when CGFNS post in the status area meets all program requirments and mailed? is that a good thing?
    Hi there! I noticed in the thread that you're applying in Nevada. I live in Vegas and was wondering about your application because I'm thinking of applying in NV BON. Which school did you graduate in in the Philippines and did they need a list of the clinical cases? I hope you can respond ASAP. I'm really worried about this. Thank you.

    Read the many topics here on why the majority of PH students and nurses trying to get their ATT or get their licenses or work and practice in CA is now going to be near impossible for many years to come.

    I'm surprised the CA BON also didn't reject the application for lack of providing the local PH license, which is a requirement for the last couple of years.

    As of Jan. 1, 2013, NV BON now needs proof of the local country's nurse license. Try NY or TX. Good luck!

    Oh, one option if you must make CA your desired state is to try the LVN-RN route (many reads and step by step guides are posted just need to read them on this section). It's got its issues also such as length time to get in, cost, competition, etc.

    There are a few CA schools offering needed courses also not easy, but can try, many reads also here.

    Hi I'm new here. I would like to ask if I could send directly to the CGFNS my TOR and License Validation. I'm starting to complete all the requirements that I need for taking CGFNS and NCLEX. But in the Application kit that I downloaded in CGFNS website it is stated there that the school, my school, should send the TOR directly to them and also the PRC will send the license validation straight to them. Do any of you have an idea if I, myself, could send directly to them those requirements. I'm starting to get confuse of all the requirements needed. Pls help me.

    the school should send it together with the form that they will need to fill up. the same thing goes with the license validation. the licensing authority, in my case the PRC, should be the one to send to CGFNS the docs that will validate your licensure.

    you will also send some docs yourself. like your HS diploma (photocopy). hope this helps. good luck

    I just did applied for CES, my only concern is about the PRC. PRC is requesting me all bunch of documents like immigration visa, passport, certification from philippine embassy and many more plus the processing fee is 8000 pesos. But my main problem is the certification from philippine embassy that I am a Filipino Citizen because embassy was too far from home.

    So I was hoping for any advise from people that did and gone through the CES application.

    BTW, Did anyone fix their own requirements?? because on my case, I just asked my auntie to request for me. Do you think that is one of the reason why they require me so many documents?

    Any thoughts????

    Pls help..

    Hello! so I'm processing my CES in CGFNS and I just want you guys to tell if I'm doing it correctly. So I registered online, filled up everything, and also paid using a credit card. Printed out the Request of Validation of License/Registration/Diploma and the Transcripts form.

    So the next thing I'm going to do is to send the Request of License, Authorization Letter(I won't be doing it since I am here abroad), a photocopy of my Passport I.D., PRC Nurse License, Certification of passing and Certification of ratings, and my Highschool Diploma to my sister and she will be the one to process it. After that, PRC will send it directly to the CGFNS. Meanwhile, I will send my Request for transcripts to my school, they will fill up the form and attach the original transcripts and send it directly to the CGFNS. Am I good so far?
