Stumble upon this forum while searching for US nursing graduate schools.
I have been browsing around and have actually learn a lot about the licensing process for RN in US.
Most of the grad schools' require RN state licensure before enrollment.
I'm very tempted to apply to NY BON.... and just have it endorse to whatever state the school is in (still undecided).
I was actually planning to apply to California RN board 1st... cos it dosen't require CGFNS.. but the SSN requirement just torpedoed my Plan A
Thanks for the info... and on to Plan B

Thanks for the welcome.
Yup, i'm going thru' the International section...
all i can say is "WOW!!"... loads of info... wish i found this place earlier
NY doesn't require CGFNS exam either, just a special credentials review done by CGFNS.
from the NY BON's form-1, I notice that the it requires notarization.
Any idea if that must be done in US?
or I can just approach one here in Singapore?
Definitely stay away form California for initial licensure, as you will only get a iece of paper and will not be able to endorse to any other state until you have a SSN#
They have this warning, in BOLD, on the application form
"If you fail to list your social security number, your application for initial or renewal license will not be processed."
but the reply i got from ucsf was that once accepted, the registrar's office does assign a temporary SSN#
I just recently returned from living in Bangkok.........used to go to Singapore quite often...............
how do u find our country?
we're currently experiencing a heat wave :angryfire
Cats see people as flexible funiture.
LOL... that's so very true :chuckle
