Good day my fellow brilliant and passionate nurses. Please will anyone be kind enough to share ideas and advice on my present challenges faced with endorsing my New York State licence.

I am a UK nurse graduate with 3 and a half years experience in general medicine ( med/surg) and i recently immigrated to the US with my family in 2018  and precisely now live in Georgia.  I passed my NClex in feb 2019 with the NY BON and i applied to the Georgia bon  for liscensure endorsement as RN, they required a CES report from CGfns and after my report evaluation, i was told that i have a deficiency in peads/obs/pyhch nursing hereby refusing to issue me a licence. 

I got a job since March 2019 and my employers have been waiting, but strangely i have done some research and found out that Texas, Washington dc and some few states don't require a CES report for foreign graduates, hence  i was wondering on relocating to Texas or Washington Dc, or New York to work, but  I am concerned  about  nurses demand in these states.

I cant afford a tuition fee for the deficiency course plus there are no schools in Georgia offering the course.  Please can anyone give me a hint on best places to work in New York, Washington DC and Texas and of course family friendly environment to raise brilliant kids.

your responses and hints of names of good receptive hospitals will be greatly appreciated. By the way, i am originally from Nigeria just in case anyone might know me...lol....

Moved to the Nurse Registration forum 

Unfortunately this is something we see common with UK trained nurses. Even if the state doesn’t require CGFNS they still require another company to do a report on your transcripts and you may still find the same issues of being short. US nurses are general trained unlike UK nurses
