Does New Jersey still needs CGFNS

  1. hello.
    I just graduated and passed our licensure exam here in the Philippines. I'm interested to work in New Jersey. I was wondering whether New Jersey still requires CGFNS before they can be considered or NCLEX will suffice?

    You will need the full CES report which is provided by CGFNS before you can apply for licensure by examintion or by endorsement

    At all times, always check with the BON that you are applying to. Requirements are subject to change.

    NJ no longer requires the CGFNS exam, just the CES.

    To clear u a few things for you: You cannot take the NCLEX-RN exam until you have been approved to take the exam by the BON. When CGFNS exam was required, you were required to pass that exam before they would consider your application, now instead you must provide them with the CES before they will act on your application.

    All 50 states in the US require the NCLEX-RN for licensure for any nurse.
