    Welcome to

    Please take the time to read the "Primer" that is located at the top of the International Forum, it will give you all of the information that you need.

    It is going to be much more than a form to fill out. Each state has its own requirements for licensure, some require the CGFNS exam, some do not. Some require the CES, a credentials eval done by CGFNS, some do not.

    All will require the NCLEX-RN exam, as well as a Visa Screen Certificate. You will be required to pass a series of English exams as well.

    Please read the above, and then let us know if you have any more questions.
