    Australian Nurse Looking to work and live in PA

    Hi, that’s exciting, thanks for sharing, where are you in PA? yes, I did psych, paeds in my bachelor but not Obgyn! I’m in the CGFNS process now. Fingers crossed. I might look at getting sponsored by going with a nursing agency. thanks 😊

    Endorsement without CGFNS

    That is a good idea...I'll look at states that don't need the CGFNS. :)

    Endorsement without CGFNS

    Thank you so much for this information. I’ll have to give proof of my nursing education to CGFNS, then sit an exam with them, then contact PA BON to sit NCLEX, or sit the NCLEX then contact the board. Thats a bit overwhelming after 35 yrs of nursing!

    Australian nurse and the NNAS story- comparable

    Oh bummer, I got excited, I thought it was the USA...I hope I do great, it's such a complex system to navigate. Do you have any idea what or when you'll be able to move over? Where are you going to? How exciting either way!

    Australian nurse and the NNAS story- comparable

    Hi Chelsea, I nearly cried when I read your post. I am wanting to be with my partner in Pennsylvania. I am about to start this process. I would love your support/help if you would be open to it? I did my Maternity nursing at the old Royal Women's Hospital years ago and then hospital based EN, then my Bachelor of Nursing at ACU, then post Grad Dip in Critical Care nursing, then Grad Cert in Adult and Voc education, then cert IV if training ect, plus a Masters in Education. I have certificates in Family Partnerships, Immunisation certified, and Clincial Supervision course/experience, I work in the kids hospital one day a week in recovery, I have ICU experience in Adults and kids, I work as a clinical nurse consultant 2 days a week in the children's obesity clinic....how do you think I'll go with registration in the US? Many thanks for any advice. I love your timeline....Thanks, Ingrid.

    AUS RN to USA HELP!

    I have my transcripts, can I send them to CGFNS? I am so confused with the process and Pennsylvania nursing board aren't taking any phone calls at the moment. Thanks for your replys and support. :)

    AUS RN to USA HELP!

    Hi, I'm in the same situation, although I haven't submitted anything as yet. I have post grad quals in vocational and adult ed and critical care as well as a masters in Education. I too work in PACU at the kids hospital and also as a CNC in the community (kids obesity clinic)....what do you think? I just want to sit the NCLEX and get a licence to practice in Pennsylvania!
  13. Hi Rose_Queen, thanks for your message.  I can't seem to find the nursing registration area you referred me to?  Is it possible to put a link in your reply please.

    Thanks, Ingrid.

  14. Hi, I am an Australian nurse with a Bachelor of Nursing, Post Grad qualifications in Adult and Vocational Education, Critical Care Nursing and Masters in Education. I also have family partnership certificate, immunisation, community family care experience and lecturing at university. Do you know if I need to contact CGFNS or just do the NCLEX and apply for licensing in PA? Many thanks the process is complex, I'd appreciate any advice. Ingrid.
