    If a State requires credits to renew your license it does not matter if you are currently working or not. They will still require them. Don't worry they are really easy to get. You can do them online. There are loads of sites but I use CEBroker.com
    The CEUs can be done in a couple of days if needed, but it is more important to make sure that the license doesn't lapse. In most states, you do not need to submit the actual certification of hours with the renewal. This is what I meant by that.

    Remember that you were under the retrogression, so nothing is delayed in your case. There were no interviews set up for RNs from the PIC countries over the past six months.

    I do not have to take cgfns.
    I want to go to Florida but am applying for licence via Vermont then transfering it to Florida.
    You have to take the NCLEX. This can now be taken in London

    Florida is one of the states that you do not have to take the CGFNS. All you need to take is the NCLEX which Ann has already said you can now take in London.

    My advice for books is Saunders, and any that have a CDROM - practise questions after questions.

    Hi Anna,

    After reviewing this thread I aggree what we discussed yesterday my dates were slightly off, dunno know when payment was sent but packet 3 sent middle of July. So I am 8 weeks into wait for medical now, so could/may/want/need to hear sometime in Oct. It just seems an age since july. Everytime letterbox goes I run to the front door with great expectations. Wish i hadn't got an ideal date in mind then I could relax lol. I so want to be gone by december but may have to revise my plans and look later, only problem is where are we going to live??????????? You cant rent for a month or so.

    hi kay

    not having an ideal date to be moving probably would be better and with all the delays I have had I am just wishing for beginning of next yr well first part of next year, whether that happens or not depends on how quick I can get approval 2nd time around. Could you not have a word with however has bought the house and see if they would be willing to take you on as short term tenants??? the other not so nice option could be a bedsit
