Academic transcript CGFNS

Posted

Hello everyone!!

I am filling papers for CGFNS and going to obtain my academic transcript from Nursing school. But I did not study in the US and my school issue different record. The CGFNS needs breakdown of theory/practice hours as well as care for Children separetely. our care for children was also included in subjects like ENT diseases, ophthalmogoly etc.

Moreover, we also had clinical practice and internship which also included Children, Geriatrics, IM, Surgery, Ambulatory.

Can anybody share with me how their transcript looks please?

how normally it looks from the US school.

The transcript needs to be specific as to hours, and the way that your school has always done it. We do things differently in the US and they cannot follow what we do here.

CGFNS is used to getting records from Russia, so just have your school submit the transcripts as they would if you were applying to graduate school or anything else. They are used to doing that.

Are you applying for the CES, or for the CGFNS exam?

Hi,

I am applying for the CP of CGFNS. I think I only need to do CP and Visa screen.

CES -for those who want to study or continue their educaiton?

thanks for reply.

About my transcript, sometimes nursing schools do poor paper work. That's why I was asking.

I have some concerns. For example, in my Transcript is written GERIATRICS 57 hours, part of it theory and part practice.

I also have separate line with where written only Internship (but is also had in it GYN,OB, SURG,Pediatrics and Gerontology hrs)

and the next line is Training, which also had such subjects but it is not mentioned.

But I saw that at registrar's office they filled CP FORM and wrote Gerontology nursing total hrs for theory and practice different than in Transcript. They said they estimated and added gerontology hours from the subject itself and traning and internship.

I wonder will it be a problem or not. I am about to ask my school to calculate and write specifically what was included in "INTERNSHIP" and "TRAINING" EVERY SUBJECT AND HOURS.

But this may take very long time.

just wondering why you are going the route of CP, does the state you want to work require the CGFNS exam? There are not many states that now require this route, most accept CES

You do not need the CGFNS exam for most states, please take the time to do some reading here. Where do you actually plan on working? That is an old requirement, and has not been needed for about 45 states for quite sometime.
