    duh!!! I haven't gotten any notification yet in my email and its been more more than 3 weeks now! what should i do next?

    What is 3 weeks, since you sent it?

    CGFNS need several weeks to confirm receipt, they get such a bulk of mail every day, it just takes some time.
    Just wait and see

    Yes 3 weeks since I sent my application and payment as well. Documents from my school and verification of license had been sent few months ago maybe about 4-5 months ago and verification of license from CA has been sent 2 months ago.

    its me again...i called up cgfns this morning and the lady told me that they did not get any application from me. she told me to check if the payment i sent with the application has been encashed and i should email them if it was encashed...hmmmm, this surprised me because i was hoping that cgfns should have a solid system on how to handle applications sent to them... the post office told me as well that if the mail did not get to them, it suppose to be sent back to me by now...its been 10 working days already since i have sent the application to PA from CA. can somebody please tell me if you experienced the same...or at least give me some advice on what to do. by the way, i'm waiting for the bank to call me if the check was encashed already..thank you guys in advance

    Hello there.

    I was wondering for the transcript verification form if it is okay if the transcript verification form comes separately from the transcript. Due to the school regulations, the transcript must be ordered from a separate agency. I'm not sure whether this will be a problem.

    Thank you in advance for your help.

    good day. here are my credentials:

    - RN license - philippines
    - passed IELTS last january
    - passed NCLEX for maryland state. no mail yet but have checked my name on lookup license.

    maryland required me to do IELTS and cgfns CES(full course by course) before they gave me ATT. i finished my CES before i took the local nursing licensure exam. maryland BON didn't require my local license anyway.
    i passed the nclex exam last week.

    VISASCREEN questions:

    1. IELTS expires in 2 years right? so it's been 8 months since i passed. is it true that applying for visascreen sort of extends the validity of my IELTS?
    2. i didn't have my local license at the time i processed my CES in 2008. now that i have local license and will apply for visascreen. do i need to validate it to cgfns CES?
    3. will i be charged by cgfns again if i ask them to validate my local license?
    4. regarding my IELTS and NCLEX results. is CGFNS automatically updated of my NCLEX and IELTS results?
    5. does maryland give license if i don't have SSN#? will i need the actual maryland license? what i have is only the license number thru the license lookup.
    6. how long will it take to finish the visa screen? i gave them my brothers address at new jersey hoping it would be faster if mails would be sent in the US instead of Philippines.

    :typingAnd one more thing, should I also sign the request for validation of license and the request for academic records with my entire name just like what was being ask for in the application form? Please advise.
