    I'm planning to endorse me application to vermont, is a VSC acceptable in lieu of a CES report?

    Will i submit a photocopy of my VSC or an original one?
    -I only have 1 copy, and I can't seem to find a service in CGFNS on getting another copy of my VSC, unless it is lost. or have a copy sent to another party.

    thank you

    It should be on the Vermont website whether they will accepts VCS and if they do then it has to come direct from CGFNS/ICHP and there usually is a small fee for this

    hi guys!!

    i also had the same problem,, i chose CA but then i coudnt have the license since i dont have SSN. i still dont know the state where i should transfer it,, i passed the NCLEX dec 2008,, and im afraid it might get destroyed after 3 yrs. Actually i already had employer and is now telling me to take IELTS ASAP to get my VSC done,the h1b shes offering me is on process now waiting for approval from the US immigration, i was advised i had to stick with that h1b visa.. Now, my problem is that h1b is just for those who had specialization on something which i dont have yet,, im just gonna have my first hospital experience this august 2009,,obviously i am not qualified to that visa,, so i really dont know how to deal with that,, i should discuss that to my empoyer i think before anythiing else..

    i really dont know what to accompish first.. its all complicated!!!!!

    Discuss it with an US immigration attorney the employer won't care if you get deported from the US or have a criminal record, they are looking for a body to fill a position and do not care about you.

    If you have already provided information for the CP then you do not usually have to send any further information to them, they can use the documents that you have already provided. Exception would be NCLEX results as that will need to be sent direct from state nursing board

    You should be able to find someone if in the US by looking in yellow pages or ask someone you trust if they have any ideas, ideally they need to be aware of the process for nurses and there could be a fee although they may say they first hour or 30 mins is free

    hello!
    Thanks for all the responses. I received my VSC via DHL ysterday. What a relief. I hope and pray we'll also find relief from this burden of retrogression very soon. Keeping fingers crossed!
    hi,

    how long did you have to wait for the visa screen certificate to come out after CGFNS received all the requirements?

    thank you very much

    anybody who can help me on this: Visa screen application form

    For Nurses Only:

    16c. Question-If you passed either the SBTPE/NCLEX-RN,Please list date and location where you passed the examination:
    Month_____ Day_______Year____State/Province_____Country_________
    Did passing of this exam lead to a licensing being issued in the same state/province/country : Yes_____ No_______
    I took the exam in Makati,Philippines
    I passed the Washington State Board exam.---I was issued a license
    Does the question in this part---16c is asking if the Board of nursing which I applied for licensure issued me a license?Does it mean I have to answer YES
    Please help.thank you.
