    it is not anymore recommended that you go thru cvs (ny) because it takes too long of a time for various reasons. unless, of course that is where you really want to work. only go thru cvs (ny) if that is where you want to work. otherwise, consider other states.

    to answer your other q, no you don't have to take the cgfns exam anymore if going thru cvs (ny) route.

    kindly, please post all q's pertaining to nclex applications and related subject matters in the international forum. the philippine forum is strictly for q's related to working in the philippines only as stated in the banner at the top of the web page. thank you.

    i will be moving your thread for you to that forum so that you don't have to start another thread or post again w/ the same topic.
