LvN requiring Cgfns

  1. I am a Filipino Nurse and tried to apply for NCLEX PN because i could not sit for NCLEX RN due to the concurrency issue.

    After long months of waiting. I have received a letter from BVNPT that i need my transcripts evaluated by a credentialing agency such as CGFNS. I was surprised because i never have had heard that lvn needs cgfns evaluation. Does anyone have the same experience as me? And what happened after?

    Thank you

    Hi! I emailed the Board and they said transcript evaluation is okay. No need for the license verification.

    Yes, but cgfns wanted the license verification too if you have the phil rn license. I tried to uncheck the license verification but it wont let me continue to the next step.

    Hi. I just wanna ask if do i need to request my former school to send my TOR in CGFNS for evaluation? Or BVNPT first before CGFNS? Thank you

    yes. They said that as of April 1, 2016, in addition to application requirements, the board is requiring all equivalency applicants foreign nursing transcripts be evaluated by a nationally accredited credentialing agency to provide secondary confirmation of requirements.

    and they also said that the transcript should be submitted directly to the board with school sealed so now i dont know if where do i need to send it first, cgnfs or board?
