I applied for my nursing licensure evaluation at IERF from France beginning of March 2011. After 3 months they rejected my evaluation. After a hard call phone they finally explained what they wanted: a letter from my nursing school signed by the director saying I completed all the courses and I passed all the tests and diploma (they already had all my academic records sent by the school and translated in English as well as my diplomas) and finally I received my evaluation in October 2011 in the US.

I applied for Florida first, but in June IERF told me Florida is not easy, it will be better if I applied for another state or more. So I paid the fee for two more states (California and North Carolina). I choose these states because there were on the list of IERF and I like to live in these areas too.

You can see on the IERF site:

Nursing State Licensing Boards that Accept IERF Evaluations

  • Arizona
  • Arkansas
  • California
  • Florida
  • Michigan (vocational nursing only)
  • Missouri
  • New Mexico
  • North Carolina
  • North Dakota
  • Oregon
  • Texas
  • Vermont

I applied on line for the Florida nursing board, and I sent an email to the California nursing board to know what I have to do. They answered me that they DO NOT accept credentialing service report. I Read on the North Carolina that they don't accept IERF too.

So if you need a credential review for California or North Carolina don't use IERF!

Finally IERF sent my equivalency report to the nursing board of New Mexico and Arizona in exchange.

My application is in progress in Florida.

ok, so i applied to the IERF in Jan 2011.....eventually after much chasing around by ME(!) i got my results through 18 months later. one area it said I had failed on was microbiology......is this not included in basic nursing care such as handwashing and tissue viability or do i need to go to uni again to be a microbiologist? Also IERF lost my IELTS exam paper and then claimed never to have received it.......cowboys looking for quick $$$$ if you ask me. She said to resend would cost me $200, plus they failed to notify me that vermont is no longer taking applicants without a SSN from May 2012. I found this out by accident in Sept.......what do I do????

Hi Fred!

I am a nurse and I would like to submit my application for licensure in the USA. In Arkansas.

After reading about the CGFNS and the IERF, the second one seems to be easier to me.

I saw that you did your CES with them to and that's why I would really appreciate it if you could gice me some advice about how to do exactly.

Thank you very much in advance for you answer! :)
