I am confused..

  1. Now I am really confused..When I attended my NCLEX review today, our reviewer who happens to be the owner of the review center I am enrolled at again told us that CGFNS may then be required for all foreign nurses to take before obtaining a visa screen certificate..She kept on convincing us not to bypass CGFNS because it may soon become one of the requirements before one can be issued with a visa screen certificate..As what I have known, one can be given with that after passing 2 exams CGFNS/NCLEX and IELTS..I really don't know what she is trying to imply but I am really confused and a little bit worried/scared after hearing what she said..I just don't understand her and her predictions..She even told us that a lot of foreign nurses are bypassing CGFNS and with that, the CGFNS people may make new laws to require all foreign nurses to pass it before working in the US or shall I say passing NCLEX, CGFNS and IELTS..Such a financial burden for me...Grrrhhh...That's why right now, I really don't know whether I should still take CGFNS when in fact my state does not require CGFNS..I am completely bothered with that she said..Please do enlighten me...Thanks..

    Check out the International forum. Not all states now require CGFNS exam and requirement for immigration is a pass in either NCLEX or CGFNS exam but to work as RN in the US you have to pass NCLEX. I would just stick with what is required by your state BON. I can not see them making it law at the moment and feel they are trying to get you to take a test you do not require. Most have to go through CGFNS but more for CES rather than exam. Have a good read on the international forum I am sure you will find the answers you need
