    jersey's pretty bad too.. especially if youre a new grad with no experience...

    my ny license took a little over two months to process.. with a couple bumps in the road...
    first nj had sent my form back to me because they required a fee to release the information.. so call your state of licensure ahead of time to see if they want money.. second, it was a little over two months with no word yet... so i had contacted nj bon and my school to ask when they had sent in my forms.. turned out that they had sent them two months ago... so i called back the ny licensure dept to check on the status.. they said they had not rec'd the forms... i told them that i had contacted the proper instututions and that they had sent the forms months ago.. so i made them dig through their piles of mail to find my forms... i was licensed that day...

    dont be afraid to follow up with persistence... i had to do the same with the nj BON as well... slackers....

    CVS takes approx 6 months but you can submit application to NY when ready however it will not be looked at until CVS is sent to them

    I am in the same situation as you. since you got education in another country, I think you need to go through CVS, and it takes a long time.

    I am in exactly the same situation... I worked as RN in TX for a year--but we had to move to NY. I heard horror stories that reevaluation of education and endorsement for foreign graduates takes forever--(up to 8 month) And everything need to be done through CGFNS ... again.... It is NOT FUN....
