I am a registered nurse in Hong Kong. Currently, I am applying the RN lincense of the New York State. I have some questions about the application, hope someonw will kindly answer my questions.
1. Do I need to fill out the NYSED Form 3?
((As I've read in the From 1, "Complete this form 3 if you hold, or have ever held, a license or certificate to practice any profession* in any jurisdiction." Is it applied to all nurses or US nurses who hold a lincese in another state?))
2. Do I need to send my transcripts and original lincense to NYSED?
Actually I know CGFNS will send forms to my school and licensure authority for verification of my attendance and licensure then prepare a report and sent it to NYSED.
According to the License Requirements in the website, however, the General Information & Policies state that:
Verifying Your Credentials
To ensure authenticity of credentials, the New York State Education Department's Office of the Professions requires evidence of your compliance with each licensure requirement be sent directly to us from the organization where you met the requirement (e.g., school, testing agency, licensing authority, certifying board, hospital, employer, etc.). These records and documents must bear an original (not photocopied) signature of the official who maintains the records and stamp or seal of the institution where the credentials are maintained.
You are responsible for asking organizations to complete and directly submit to us the documentation you need. Keep a record of your verification requests.
.... so, do I need to send them those documents?
Please kindly answer my questions!!
