    Question regarding the ATT validity for NYstate

    Yes I did. The eligibility letter is issued after the BON accept your transcripts... After they mail that letter to you, you are able to apply for NCLEX through Person Vue. The Eligibility Letter doesn't have an expiration date. However, once you register with Person Vue they're going to send you a ATT letter that is valid for 90 days. The NY BON also told me to contact them after I register with Person Vue.

    No... You can try contact USCIS (immigration) or an immigration lawyer... But I have no idea...

    Portuguese nurse , BON wont send documents.

    Higino, that doesn't apply to me since I am already living and working in the US (not as a nurse).

    Portuguese nurse , BON wont send documents.

    Hi! I am a Portuguese nurse as well. As you, I also applied for the CVS/NY and had a hard time with the Portuguese BON - Ordem dos Enfermeiros. So what happened was that they refused to sign any document that came from CGFNS. I am registered at Secção Regional do Centro. So, they addressed my problem to the head office in Lisbon and they wrote a declaration sign by the Bastonária saying that the Ordem doesn´t provide any information about it´s members in documents that it hasn´t produced. They sent that declaration directly to CGFNS. Then, Secção Regional do Centro wrote down a declaration stating that I am a member of the Ordem (in portuguese). They were the ones that sent it to CGFNS. I had to pressure them a lot to have everything done and that included speaking directly with the president of the Secção Regional do Centro. I was bugging him by e-mail and phone. Of course that this process took a long time... In the end CGFNS accepted everything... By the way, you don´t have to translate anything for CVS. Just keep in mind that CGFNS is not going to accept any document if you send it yourself. They need all of the paperwork coming from the source. Hope this can help you and good luck with everything. P.S: My process with the Ordem was done by the old administration. I know they had elections recently and the personnel has changed...

    Question regarding the ATT validity for NYstate

    So, I just called the pearson vue to ask them about this. It looks like the letter that I received from NY it is not the ATT letter but a letter that says that I am eligible to register on pearson vue. I was told that I have to register with them, pay the 200$ fee and then they'll send me the ATT letter. Is that right??? Can somebody help me with this... I am really confused right now.... Thanks agai
  10. Hi! I hope you guys can help with this matter. So, I just received my ATT letter and the date on it is 02/02/12. However, it doesn't say when it'll expire. I read somewhere that NY ATT letters are good for 90 days only. Is that right? Also, do I have to register for pearson vue right now, or can I wait... I don't feel prepare to sit for the test yet, so I would like to shedule my test the late as I can, but of course within the 90 days. What do you guys recommend. Thank's for all of the replies...
  11. Did you find out if that is possible? 'Cause I am gonna need to do the same and I can't find any information about it. Thanks.

    Question about CGFNS process...

    Well,finally they received my documents... My status is now ready for processing and it says that they are waiting for my license and transcript validation from school and boards... I know that thing takes time... I'm gonna wait a couple of weeks and then I'll call them. Thanks for your reply... :)
  13. Hi! I just started my process with CGFNS, I did the application online, I paid and I sent in all the documents they requested... I sent the letter as a certified mail for their P.O. Box address that appears on the majority of the forms, but when I was tracking the mail trough the USPS this is what appears: We attempted to deliver your item at 11:28 am on March 09, 2011 in PHILADELPHIA, PA 19101 and a notice was left because an authorized recipient was not available. You may arrange redelivery by visiting www.usps.com/redelivery begin_of_the_skype_highlighting 800-ASK-USPS end_of_the_skype_highlighting, or may pick up the item at the Post Office indicated on the notice. If this item is unclaimed after 15 days then it will be returned to the sender. Information, if available, is updated periodically throughout the day. Please check again later. or calling 800-ASK-USPS Detailed Results: Notice Left (No Authorized Recipient Available), March 09, 2011, 11:28 am, PHILADELPHIA, PA 19101 Arrival at Unit, March 09, 2011, 10:56 am, PHILADELPHIA, PA 19104 Acceptance, March 07, 2011, 3:52 pm, MANCHESTER, CT 06042 When I am checking the order status it still says that they are waiting for the documents to be received. I found out there is another address to contact them, the Market Street one.... To which address did you guys sent your application, and how long it took to be received? Should I send the documents again for the other address? I didn't received the CGFNS ID number... Do you guys know how long it takes until they send me the number? I appreciate all the answers because I am really concern... If I am having issues in the begining of the process I don't even want to think about the rest.... Thanks in advance

    EU Nursing Education

    European nursing education varies from country to country... I can give you an example from Portugal... Over there Nursing is a graduate program, that means that you need to attend college during 4 years. All of us have the bachelor degree( in Portuguese is called "Licenciatura"). We do not have all the categories of nurses like in US (PCA, LPN, RN, etc). After 4 years of college we are a general nurse, what is the same as a RN in US. I think in Italy and Spain, the nursing programs are almost the same, but I am not too sure. For example, I know that in England it's a little bit different. But anyways I am still not too sure... So if you pretend to do your project about EU Nursing education you should consider that the programs are not equal in every European country...

    CVS-NY Application- Question

    I am not sure, but even in the CVS applicant handbook - http://cgfns.org/files/pdf/apps/2008%20CVS%20Handbook.pdf - if you see the last page, where it say You must sign and date this application in order to be processed, there is a blank for the Signature of Notary and it have a circle that is the place for the official seal/stamp. If you don't mind just take a quick look. Thanks.
