Hello,

All the posts seem to be older.  

I just wanted any advice or clarification on the process of a Cdn RN who graduated before writing the cdn NCLEX for licensing in California. 

I was going to pay to go through CGFNS - credentials eval option.

I have already been an RN for 9 years in Vancouver BC . 

I wanted to do travel nursing- seems like an easier process job/visa wise.

Is there anything more I can/need to do? 

 

Thanks!

Do you have a US SSN? California will not accept application without it.

That’s not the only way to do it. 
 

I know there’s other people in my situation who don’t have a sun card. 
I’ll wait until someone else answers.

I would suggest looking for employer willing to support for visa application but it doesn’t have to be a travel nurse as nafta isn’t difficult to obtain as long as you meet state requirements, have a license, visa screen certificate and a job offer
