    Hi! I would just like to ask about this VSC. My CGFNS and IELTS will expire this July but I still have no plans for leaving the country or anything. Would it still be okey if applied for VSC next year or do I have to take the exams all over again? thank you so much.

    For VSC everything has to be current so if your exams expire next month if you do not have pass in NCLEX then you will have to do the exams again this includes English exams. With retrogression you are looking at years anyway

    You don't have to wait for VSC to find a employer but nothing will go any further without one.

    You may be able to do it by telephone (cancelling application). Regarding updating your application usually it has to be done by mail and in writing. Exceptions would be NCLEX results and English exams which have to come direct from them

    hi suzanne! i just wanna ask if it's ok to have more than 1 cgfns account? i've noticed that i cannot edit my 1st application so i'm planning to create another account since i have'nt paid yet. i don't want to continue my 1st application because of the incomplete data. is there really no way for me to edit my application?
    Hello Mauigirl. We're somewhat on the same boat. I applied my visascreen in the early part of this year thru online too. NOw that I am abput to complete all the documents needed, I have noticed that I have a new CGFNS order#. I would also like to cancel the new one.

    Were you able to find the solution to your concern? How did you go about it. I e-mailed cgfns last monday (July 21, 2008) , but still no response. I'll try to call them later.

    Please share with me how you were able to cancel your other account. Thanks in advance and God bless.

    I'm an NCLEX-Passer for CA BRN without SSN. For the license verification requirement of CGFNS/ICHP VSC requirement of successful completion of NCLEX, I just paid $20 for 2 copies of test results to be sent to CGFNS and to my address for personal files. Just write a letter to CA BRN requesting them to send a copy to CGFNS and attach a photocopy of your notice of passing the NCLEX-RN.

    CA actually charges $60 to complete the paperwork that needs to be sent to CGFNS for the VSC. You do not have a license issued so they need to do it manually.

    They have to complete a document for them and it is not just sending a copy of the letter to you.

    You need to check with them, have not seen them do it for the $10 that they charge for the copy for you.

    The $10 Copy Of Test Results for VSC of CGFNS/ICHP for NCLEX-passers for CA BRN who do not have SSN can actually avail of this. I have checked my status order and they have received and reviewed the copy of test results as proof of successful completion of the NCLEX-RN.
