I applied in Louisiana but i was denied by CGFNS for the Certification Program because i lack hours on my psych....after that i applied again California because they dont have any CGFNS requirement which is also a BIG mistake....And lastly i applied in Michigan state CGFNS CES took 6 weeks to be done... After another 6weeks i receive my ATT....so that is my story....

    Ok guys, I'm required to take the medical surgical in Nevada with clinicals and theory. I'm not sure of what I should feel but now I can move on with my application. I'm either applying to AK or MI since my family and friends are there and since I kinda made a plan in AK already. haha.

    Just like other applicants I was required to take Medsurg2 but not the physical assessment. I'm not sure of why I was required to take it but I'm guessing it was because my Long Term Care had a (-) on the hours and theories. I'm not sure if it was because of that, but I know that some students, unfortunately for me being one of them, are not exposed to ltc clinicals.

    Also if you do not have a license and did apply for the nclex within this year you are safe from the requirement. Just as long that your application was processed before 2013. Oh geez. Well back to filling up applications again.

    Oh NO, so sorry to hear that this is happening to you too! Wow, best of luck in applying elsewhere and hope it all works out for you in the end.

    It was kind of expected, I'm sure, but now it's time to move on.

    It will be a very rough and tough road for all of us IEN's, but we can endure, the path will just be a lot longer. Good luck!

    it's alright. yeah it was expected since a lot of IEN's were being denied as well. It's still a bit vague of why they are requiring me to take up medsurg 2 again. Is it intended for every applicant? I'm just confused. I tried to contact a school in Ca that would accept IENs with similar situation and their coordinator even said the BRN isn't really concise as to what they want IENs to enroll. Their giving both students and school a hard time. I'll come back to this thread again for more updates on my requirements and my application on the other states. Best of luck to all of us!

    Just passed the Illinois NCLEX-RN. Awaiting the paper license.

    I didn't encounter any problem while applying for it. It was actually pretty fast. Got my AT&T 1 day after I register.

    Graduated with a BSN from the Philippines.
