I'm a foreign RN
(graduated in the Philippines
) and now a permanent resident
currently living in Wisconsin. I've enrolled for a CP (Certification Program)
under CGFNS and I've been scheduled for a CGFNS exam on November. From what I understand, CP means taking the CGFNS exam
and an English proficiently test
(IELTS/TOEFL) in order to obtain a CGFNS certificate.
Is there any way I can bypass the English exam
since I'm already living here in Wisconsin? I've been trying to get in touch with the DSPS but I've been just passed around and ended up leaving useless voice mails. Who's going to decide about the bypassing of English test, the BON or the CGFNS (since they're the one issuing the certificate in the first place)?
Also, to utilize my waiting time for all of these nursing stuff, I've applied to DSPS for a CNA certification. I've contacted the Pearson Vue about the eligibility route which means DSPS just has to check and verify my RN license so I can take the CNA certification exam.
Please leave a comment down below about anything you know about this issue.
Thank you so much.
Hi! I am currently living in milwaukee, wisconsin and still waiting for my application for my cgfns. I would like to ask if what should i expect in the cgfns exam? Are the questions more like nlcex questions? Or much harder? Thank you. I am also an RN from the Philippines.

Yea the questions are a bit similar in terms of presentation. It was more on fundamentals and basic knowledge and recall. It wasn't hard enough that it had me thinking over my feet, but i would say review all areas, some you might recall but not as vivid as trying togo through every content area and that's where Saunders had helped me. God bless and good luck!
@jumerjumper - Thanks and congrats to you! Just now I read your reply.. Thank Goodness I too, passed the exam. yey!
i remember there were 30 questions that I honestly didn't know the answers and upto now I'm trying to find, but without luck. Well I better move on and leave it for a while. My question is how long now before they will mail the CP certificate? I passed my IELSTS dec '12, and right now in my status it says POST CP REVIEW.
