    CHN vs. CDN

    Sorry I don't. Good luck on your test.

    CHN vs. CDN

    You are welcome! It was a 200 items exam with 4 hrs time limit. I would say mine was a difficult and a tricky one. It all depends on what test set you get. I think? Use the core curriculum of nephrology from ANNA and you will do good. If your only into dialysis CHN or CDN would be good but if you are into or planning of moving to Transplant unit, PD or Renal Unit, i would go for CNN as my certification.

    CHN vs. CDN

    From what I heard CHN from BONNET once expired, you need to retake the test everytime. While the CDN from NNCC once expired, you only need to have CEU's in order to renew. I took the CNN though from NNCC.:)

    H1b Visa for nurses under FY 2010

    I checked their website and there is no contact number and address on the site. Do your research first before you pay.Although I am very interested on their list of hospital sponsoring H1B. If you are into renal nursing you can check this site also.:) NNCC

    specialty enquiry

    There are several facilities that offers dialysis training with a fee for nurses like PKDF, NKTI, BRAUN etc. But accredited in the US, I dont think so. Even if they will claim to be one. To be a certified dialysis nurse(CDN) or certified nephrology nurse(CNN) in the US, one must have the following in order to be eligible to take the test: The applicant must hold a full and unrestricted license as a registered nurse in the United States, or its territories. The applicant must have a minimum of two years of nephrology nursing experience as a registered nurse in a clinical staff (to include advance practice), administrative, teaching, or research capacity, within three years prior to submitting this application. In meeting criterion #2, the applicant must have spent at least fifty percent of employment hours in nephrology nursing. The applicant must possess a Baccalaureate in Nursing or a Master's in Nursing Degree. The applicant must have completed thirty contact hours of approved continuing education credit in nephrology nursing within three years prior to submitting this application. Once you passed the 200 items exam. You will earn the title of CDN or CNN Note: You can still be employed/work as a dialysis nurse in the US even without this certification.

    requirements for visa screen renewal

    Yes, you need a valid/unexpired IELTS result in order to renew your VSC unless you work in the US for at least 27-36 months- including nine months of the year before the date an applicant submits the renewal application., you will only need a employment summary on corporate letterhead from your employer then your English requirement will be waived.:)

  9. Just passed my CNN. I spend like $400 including registration and review materials. I would not consider that a rip off considering its a certification of your area of specialty. It was all worth it. So glad i took it.

  11. Prior to April 26, 2010, once an applicant passed the NCLEX-RN examination, the applicant was allowed a three-year time period to submit a valid SSN. After that time period had elapsed, the file was considered abandoned and the file was destroyed. Additionally, an applicant was also allowed to request an extension on the file Abandonment Date. This was done as a courtesy to the applicant. As of April 26, 2010, the BRN will no longer grant an extension on the file abandonment date. An applicant, who has passed the NCLEX-RN exam and is affected by file abandonment and file destruction, still has the following options: - Once the valid U.S. Social Security Number is obtained, the applicant may re-apply to the BRN. The applicant will not have to retest, because even though the file is abandoned and destroyed, the NCLEX-RN test result is still valid. You do need to submit a new Application Fee Schedule for Examination; a transcript and the fingerprint card. When the Board receives all the requirements (a new application; transcript from school; the fingerprint clearance and a valid U.S. SSN) we needed; the CA RN license will be issued. :)

    Visa screen certificate vs IELTS result

    Visascreen certificate validity is 5 years regardless of your IELTS 2 years validity has expired. You will only need a valid/unexpired IELTS result once you renew your Visascreen certificate after 5 years.
