    All my Visascreen documents are being mailed separately, does that matter? E.g. My transcript will be sent to CGFNS by the Registrar's office of my college( I asked if I could pick it up and have it mailed in the same envelope with the the nursing information, they said no); the nursing school will be mailing their info separately, the BON will be sending the license verification separately, and I mailed my VSC application.
    There's no way I could have mailed them as one package. Is that going to me a problem? I am kinda concerned and hoping CGFNS has some way of matching the names /collecting the documents as they come in.
    That is how it is supposed to be done, there is no problem with that at all.

    Hi, I am worried... Here is my situation. I have a CGFNS Certificate. Last May 2006, I was Interviewed for US working Visa. One requirement I do not have is the VisaScreen Certificate because I have'nt passed IELTS( speaking test in particular) and so they are asking me to submit the VSC... Now I passed IELTS last May 2007.. August, I went at US embassy and asked if my application is still active? And they said "yes" and I need to submit the VSC... I went on to process all my requirements for the VSC.
    Processing time for the VSC is ussually about 6 mos.right? Now I am worried that by the time the VSC is released and I will submit it at the US Embassy( that is 1 year and 6 mos). Will the US Embassy Consul honor or accept my VSC and will they still process my working Visa? And any advises please... thank you very much.

    The wait time is just a couple of months, not six months. But what type of working visa? The only thing that is available to you is the H1-C, and that is not a good idea in any case for anyone. If you do not like the facility, or they do not like you, it is very difficult to get placement at another facility that can do the H1-C; there are only 15 out of the entire US.

    Not sure why your employer did not give you this information about the VSC being required before any visa would be issued to you in the first place. At this point, it will be more to do with if the employer still has a spot for you, that may no longer be in existance because of the time that has passed. I would check with them, and a new contract is going to be required to be submitted to the US Embassy before they will grant a visa.

    All signatures are supposed to be the same, make sure that the one on the picture is a complete signature and that is what should have been used on the application as well.

    Suggest that you write your signature in full on the application next to where you wrote your other signature. All need to match, and it is easy to just fix it now since it has not been sent in.
    hi suzzane! do you mean it like this? like put a slash between the two signatures?

    ---> signature in full / usual signature

    i applied online so the forms that i'll have to change is the one from school, two of the license validation forms(i forgot what it's called) and the photo form... oh no! i've already passed a form for my IELTS results, will it be okay? Will CGFNS recognize i have two signatures?

    when will be my passport be needed by CGFNS? because i had a different signature there too, it's in full signature except that my middle name is in the form of middle initial... I got my passport at a young age and my mother taught me to sign that way. now that i'm a grown-up i've come up with my own but she advised me not to change my signature in the passport when we renewed it so it's the same since then... now it's a problem! it was like that too with nclex but i got through. Thanks for reading suzzane! i know... it's troublesome.. didn't realize that earlier should i just carry a document like a legal document that says all 3 signatures belong to one person? i swear i'm changing my signature in my passport the next time i'm renewing it.

    you need to go to the CGFNS website and start the process. Your training school may have to send copy of your transcripts and you will have to send proof of schooling as a child usually waivered if schooling was longer than 10 years ago. You will also need to arrange with the governing bodies and pay any fees for your results to be sent to them. IE your BON needs to send verification that you passed NCLEX, can take anything from 4 months if from overseas and that your documents as received in a timely manner

    Hi,

    I have applied for VSC and need to request CA BON for License verification. Since I donot have SSN my license is not issused yet. So still can I request for license verification? or for confirmation of NCLEX passed. Do I need to request these things separately or is included in the License Validation Form that is in the VSC handbook packet? And also if I need to request separately how much fee I need to pay for each one? Thank you very much.

    This has been answered a few times, Have you tried doing a search or reading through some of the posts in this thread. You should be ok with the form in the handbook and fees should be on the BON website and for CA think it is $60 but have a search or read first to check

    wait until you receive your CGFNS ID # thru regular mail or send them an email request or call them which is the fastest way. then register for a new account with your CGFNS ID #. i actually had the same problem, good luck!

    Good Day!
    I'm planning to take the Certification Program and the exam is scheduled on March 2008 but the requirements are due on december 2007. Would it be possible that i can meet the deadline provided that I mail my apllication to CGFNS this first week of October? How long would it take for the application to reach CGFNS office + the processing time of my application?

    By the way I'm from the Philippines..

    Thanks in Advance...

    Do you really need to take CGFNS exam? It really isn't recommended unless state requires it and now not many do.
