I am an RN from Vancouver Canada and I moved to WA. Yes, they require CGFNS and also you have to do an online HIV/AIDS course. You need to first contact CGFNS and apply for transcript evaluation. Then contact the Washington State Nursing Commission and apply at the same time. Prepare for everything to take a lot of time. I have my BSN from a well-known school from Vancouver and I applied in May 2010....... I still don't have my ATT letter.

The easiest way to get your RN license is to apply via California Board of Nursing they do not require CGFNS once you get all your requirements approved by CA.BON then you can take the nclex RN exam once you passed you can endorse your license to WA. But take note CA. will not release your RN license if you do not have a social security #. Good Luck
