I am a nurse from the Caribbean looking for liscensure in Massachusetts. I know I need to get my education evaluated by CGFNS, but what are the other steps in the process?

Have you checked out the state’s nursing website?

yes I did however they did not give specific info about applying with their state after the cgfns process. It's not very specific. this part is what is confusing

Usually the process is once you have report from CGFNS you submit application to state, pays fees and wait for review. If approved then you apply to Pearsonvue and they will issue ATT and you can arrange to sit NCLEX. If not approved they will inform you why.

Hi. I am a permanent resident who graduated BSN degree in the Philippines. Do I still need tl take the board exam from the country where I graduated or can I take NCLEX California right away? Based on my understanding on the state's requirement, it can either be a license or just a diploma. Am I right?

California usually requires a letter stating why you didn’t sit local exam. You will still need to provide copies of your cases etc and depending on when you did your training will depend on whether you have to make up some courses

I don't know about California but here in Las Vegas you don't have to be licensed in the Philippines. It is best to contact directly the California board of nursing.
