    Do I still need to have a CES even if I already passed the NCLEX in the State of Vermont?

    You do not need CES for vsc but you will have to send in any required documentation like transcripts

    This is under the FAQ under International applicants on Vermont

    How do I obtain verification of my Vermont nursing license?
    When you are applying to another state, country or for VisaScreen verification there will be a form that is usually provided that you need to send to us. This form should be providedfrom the state, country or from VisaScreen and will need to be sent to us along with a
    $20.00 fee. If there is no form available see our website for a form. The fee should be
    made payable to the Office of the Secretary of State and needs to be in US dollars and
    drafted from a US bank.

    For what? If it is in regards for your vsc then no you do not need to submit anything as CGFNS will see they already have the documents and reuse them

    Hi guys I'm a nurse from the Philippines. I applied for my NCLEX in New Jersey, which means I completed my CES then IELTS first before they let me sit on the exam. I took and passed my NCLEX just this April 2010, and up until now I haven't received any emails notifying me that I passed.I only knew it trough quick results. My IELTS will expire this September 18. I applied for VSC just today and now I'm really confused.

    Here are my questions:
    1. What is the appropriate visa that I should choose?where can i find the EB3 visa?

    2. I already have my CES, does that mean I dont need to send the hard copies of my school records and Philippine license anymore?

    3. How long does the VSC take?

    thank you.

    thank you.
    VSC takes approx 4 months to be issued and because you have CES the same documents can be used for VSC

    EB3 visa like work visa requires a employer and EB3 is currently affected by retrogression so expect currently several years wait once you have a employer and approval is given.

    thank you for the reply. does that mean i cant apply for eb3 by myself?only H1B? my IELTS is going to expire this september...If I can file it this month is there a chance that they'll reject it if it will take 4 months to process?how would they know that I already have CES?thank you.

    You can't apply for H1b or EB3 they are employer driven and you must have a employer.

    ICHP is part of CGFNS and they will know that you have had CES done.

    Not sure on English test validity re you only have a couple months left before it expires, they may accept it there again they may not. Have you tried contact them about it?
