Evaluation for RN in NYS for a foreign student

Julia_sh Julia_sh (New) New

Hello everyone.

Im a foreign educated nurse. Trying to get my lisence thru NY. I went thru CGFNS and all the paperwork is already send to the NYS. Have been waiting for the response from them for a year now, YES, FOR A YEAR!!!. I called them, email them , they always say we are processing your papers. Now they send me email saying we send your papers to the Burea of Comparative Education ? How much longer do I have to wait ? I don't think it took this long for anyone else !! Please give me some advise .

Suggest you use the search tool in the top right hand corner to see if their are previous threads regarding education being assessed by the bureau of comparative education.

A year is too much.... CGFNS are required after 6 months to send everything to NY BON for them to do their assessment. I think this is what they are doing now and most get an answer within 1-2 months. Have you submitted your application to the NY BON?

I don't have problem with the CGFNS. My papers were ready in 3 month and send to NY BON. Right away I send the Form 1, child abuse and infection control to BON. And since then I have been waiting a year. What takes it so long is the NY BON. And I don't know why.. I wander if it took so long for anyone else too?

And a month ago they send an email saying it's in Burea of Comparative Education.. Which I don't know what it means.

Thank you so much for the responses .

Julia_sh, how's it going now? I'm also in the same stage. NYSED received my papers June 12. Papers are now with COMPED. I don't know how long it's going to take before I'll receive ATT.
