    does the location mean the location where you took the NCLEX exam or the country you applied for the NCLEX exam?
    how about for the license validation form, since California doesn't issue a license only a pass letter, so there is no need to forward the form to CA BON?

    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

    I think it took about 6 weeks for me (from the time all documents were recieved).

    hi guys, recently i have passed the NCLEX-RN Exams for Vermont last July 27, known the results 48 hours later via the Internet and i am also finished taking the IELTS Exam. Eventhough, i have passed the NCLEX, i still don't have a registration number and a license from the state of Vermont. Here are my questions:

    a. on the question statement "did passing of this exam (NCLEX-RN) lead to a license being issued in the same State/Province and Country?" should i answer "No" on that question?...because eventhough i passed my NCLEX Exams for Vermont...i cannot still process my license because my confirmation letter that i have passed the exams hasn't arrived yet.


    b "If licensed in the United States, Canada or Australia, please list the state or province in which you were licensed

    _______________________________ Registration Number_______________________"

    Should i leave this statement blank?...because i still dont have a registration number and license from the VErmont BON


    I'm very confused on this statemets and these are the only questions that hindering me from passing my VisaScreen Application...I just want to beat the November 15 deadline on my IELTS exams taken 2 years ago...

    Thank you in advance...:wink2:

    You should wait for your license number from vermont. According to the CGFNS all the informations should be provided, if not, they will return the application form thus prolonging your application. Try to visit vermont website and probably your registration or license is already posted there or try to call them to speed up the process.

    guys, I'm confused about this statements in the Application Form

    A. About the Authorization to Release Information...I don't want to disclose any information about my files sent to CGFNS/ICHP...should i leave this behind or should i sent this with the rest of my application forms but leaving it completely blank?...

    B.About the Credit Card Payment Form...do CGFNS allowed a third party to pay for my fees?... (I want it to be charged to the credit card of a friend of mine since i don't have one.) and if this allowed should it be sent with the rest of my forms?...because it is printed in this page "detach this form if payment only if payment is being made by a third party"

    C.on the request for Academic Records...

    between (dates of attendance) ___________and____________

    -Should i fill out the complete date or only the month and the year that i am enrolled in college?...

    -Aside from that the complete name of the state (Negros Occidental) which i reside in....cannot be completely jotted down on the space being provided for the NAME OF STATE/PROVINCE...what should i do on this part?....

    D.About the photographs...the total photos to be sent in passport size..is

    1 Photo being pasted in the Photo Identification Form with a complete signature of my name in it's front and 2 Passport Photos being signed at the front and the back of the pic with my signature only (not my full name)...am i right?

    Thank you for helping me understand on how to fill up these forms...

    Hi. Do not include the authorization to release information form, that is usually for a third party such as an agency that assists you. You can use the credit card of your friend just fill up the form properly(Payment with credit card form). You can write the province in two lines just to fit, as long as it is readable. Lastly, you will include only one photo, passport size with your signature using your full name. The signature should match with the other forms that you will submit to them.

    You mean to say,that my signature using my full name is the one that I will use to fill in every signature entry in all of the application forms?....


    Also I'm wondering if i made the correct entries in this questions:

    A. In which other country or countries do you currently have, or have ever held a nursing license? I jotted down Philippines in the entry form or Should I leave this blank it's because I'm only licensed to practice Nursing in the Philippines only, apart from the U.S.

    B.If you passed either SBTPE or NCLEX-RN,Please list the date and location where you passed the exams

    Month 07 Day 27 Year: 2009 State/Province _____?____ Country______?_______

    In the State Entry...should i put Manila it's because that's where I took the NCLEX Exams or should I put Vermont because that's where I applied for my exams?....

    I'm very sorry if I am a bit of a nuisance here asking these type of questions it's because that I just simply wanted to finish my Visa Screen Application with the less time and effort so that I could return to my job as a nurse in our hospital...My Supervisor will not allow me to return to my workplace if I cannot finish this forms...She wanted me to focus solely on my work as a Staff Nurse not on these applications when I return to my job...

    Thank You Everyone...
