    Usually by post mail. From the date they released the results, the certificate will arrive within a month or two. Congrats!

    to be honest, I have no klue, how I passed cgfns..... I passed it with 1 point over the limit...... the questions are so stupid..... but the only thing that really helps mew as to take your time to read the questions.....

    I took it twice, and the first time, I finished it to early.

    I wish you good luck and all the best!!!
    my fingers are crossed!!!!

    best wishes

    Hi Friends,
    I prepared for cgfns in just 3 months without any review classes.i will not advice for that also.I read all the instructions carefully on the cgfns site about the exam.exam module is like Nclex exam module.difference is only it is in two different shift and paper-pencil test where you can recheck your answer and coorect if needed,whereas Nclex-rn exam is Computer adaptive. and in one sitting only.
    In exam there are different sets so it sure that all candidates may not have same Qs in same order or entire Qs set is different.
    on my personal experience i can give tips-
    plan you study hours according to your convenience.and follow tips given in any preparation guide books.I would recommend reading-1-Kaplan
    2-saunders' review with CD and mosby's review.
    I also studied lippincott and NSNA but i would not recommend them at all as there are different rationals i stopped reading them after few tests. so better to concentrate on one or two books.
    If you can just go thru mosby or saunders' for review and do as many as Qs you can.
    3-Don't get tempted by' CG secrets' etc online sold books,i purchased that too but i would ask you to think twice before you has given me no benefit at all.
    what i feel preparation is more or less like NCLEX -rn exam[because i am preparing for tht now using Suzanne's first tip.
    -while preparing for exam-forget abt everthing other than your target to pass till your brain is no more grasping anything.-[may be for 2-3 hrs at a stretch]
    -note down time for any test you complete.because time is important in cg. exam-u will get only one minute per Question to read and answer.
    -Pray to god everyday for success.BE POSITIVE about yourself.
    -you are a nurse you know the content -practice more and more tests.
    -do relaxation exercise,listen music,talk to frnds when you feel exhausted.
    -well these all are from my experience.hope you can get some benefit out of it.
