Do you really have to do the CGFNS exam? There are not many states now that require it. I would suggest doing a search in the International forum regarding CGFNS exam and also I do not believe there is a online course for the exam you just study the book that comes from CGFNS. Where abouts in the US are you looking to live?

im planning to work in texas. but ive already sent my cgfns CP and just waiting for the approval. what can i do about that?

Texas only require CES from CGFNS not the exam. If you have laready paid for it you could write and see if you can change the fee over from exam to CES but this is not guaranteed and may mean you paying more. Suggest you have a read on their website and also requirements with Texas. Have you yet applied to Texas bon? http://www.bne.state.tx.us/olv/faq-Nclex.html#faq25 and http://www.cgfns.org/sections/programs/ces/

I moved this thread to the International Forum as it is not specific to working in the Philippines.

There are very few states in the US that still require the CGFNS exam, and most employers will not offer a job without seeing a passing score on the NCLEX exam. This is definite for hospitals.

Please check out the Primer at the top of this forum for information that you need to have done. And if a state requires the CES, usually the CGFNS exam will not cover that requirement. You always want to check the specifics of a state as to what they want and need.

CES is an evaluation of your nurse training, would recommend going for the full course. Read the links I gave you as they tell you what is requiredYou need to write to CGFNS and see if they will change your payment from exam to CES but there is no guarantee that they will do this. If not then you will have to pay for the CES report. As Suzanne has said taking the exam will not be suffice for Texas you will need the CES report.

Take a deep breath and do some reading on this forum and make notes, things will then fall into place

California does their own evaluation and there is a lot written on here to recommend not to go for initial application as they will not give you a license until you have a SSN which you will not get until you are in the US with a valid working visa. Can take months to get ATT from CA and also takes several weeks to get results

The address to write to CGFNS is on their website and I have already posted the link

and as I have already said there is no guarantee that they will let you change you application from exam to CES
