Don't know, but the NYS licensure division is very friendly and usually can answer your questions. (518) 474-3817 Board of Nursing.

If you are canadian, try this site:

I was trying to find out license requirements for several southern states, and the Boards of Nursing in 2 states told me things that disagreed with this site. I have application packages in the mail from these places, and I'm hoping the secretaries were wrong about needing the CGFNS. It s a *very* expensive certificate to obtain, especially if you don't live in one of the cities that hosts the exams! Makes me wonder if they really want us down south!
