yes im internationally educated.. and what is CES? what do i need to do for that? wow confusing..
Even if you are a US citizen, that is only helpful with immigration issues, but you will still need to follow what ever a state wants if you did not train in the US; you will need to follow the requirements for a foreign trained nurse....even for the states that have language requirements, you would have to go thru those, as well,
The CES is a credentials evaluation that is done by CGFNS. You will need to get that done before GA will permit you to test. Remember that licensure is based on where you trained, it does not care about your citizenship.
Licensure is completely separate from immigration issues. They are completely unrelated in their requirements.
Also, please be aware that you will not be able to even start the CES process until you have a completed set of transcripts. Not one thing can be done until then, and GA BON will not evaluate your application until they have the CES.
