  1. 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

    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.
  3. 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...

    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
  12. 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.

    CVS-NY Application- Question

    Hi everybody!!! I was in the CGFNS site applying for the CVS-NY and when I was filling my information I put the professional education information, e.g. my college information as post-secondary instead of professional education. Since I don't have any post-secundary education i would like to erase that information and then fill the professional education camp. The problem is that the web site don't let me erase the information. I already tried cancel the order and then do everything again but the information is still there... How can I erase this? Anybody knows?? Please help me!!! Tomorrow I will try call to CGFNS, but I think I will not have lucky because every time I try they never pick the phone!!!

    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.

    CVS-NY Application- Question

    Ok, I got you... It also said that the application must be notarized, so even if on top of the electronic form say FOR YOUR RECORDS ONLY, I will sign that form notarize it and send it. Just for precaution... Actually, do you think that is more secure pay online through credit card or through check?? Another thing I remembered when I was looking the nursing application packet of NY State of Education is related to the Form 1 - Application for Licensure. Should I send this form to NY State of Education after everything w/ CGFNS be updated or should I send now? Thanks again... You have been extremely helpful to me!!! I really appreciate your help!

    CVS-NY Application- Question

    Thank you again Silverdragon! I called CGFNS this morning and they told me to create another account... So I did that... Just to clarify this.. Even I filled all the information on-line I need to print the form and mail it to CGFNS, as well as the authorization forms right. After I proceed the payment and send everything to CGFNS, when I should apply for TOEFL??? They will send me something saying that I can apply??? I am not sure about this... Thank you...
  19. Hi everybody! I am a registered nurse from Portugal, that want to apply for the Credential Verification Service for NY state. As an emmigrant my situation here is OK, since I have green card and SS#. So what I need is apply for CGFNS and pass the exams! When I first started filling the Credential Verification Service form, some doubts popped up, therefore, I really appreciate if you guys can help me! This is the link of the applicant handbook: http://www.cgfns.org/files/pdf/apps/2008%20CVS%20Handbook.pdf In the item #1 (Preliminary Information) of the application form itself, what should I put in the item d.? I am a new grad, so I just have internships experience... Should I put N/A? #10 (Education/Institutions Attended) - What is the primary and secondary school here in US? In Portugal I attended primary school (1-4 grade), then middle/elementary school (5-9 grade) and finally secondary school (10-12 grade). So, I attended 3 different schools, but in the form I just have space for two schools. How can I fill this? Related to the professional education, I suppose that is the name of the school where I attended nursing... #11 (Registration/License) - In the Legal Professional Title box, should I filled with my native Professional Title, in other words, should I write the title in Portuguese or should I translate it to English? I am also very confused with the Authorization for Validation of Registration/License and Authorization for Academic Records (transcripts)... Who will send this to my school and Nursing Board... It is me or CGFNS? Should I contact these two entities to advise them? I am very concerned and I am not sure what is the correct procedure. Thank you so much! I will really appreciate all help you guys can give me!!! Thanks again!
  20. Well, so that's what I am going to do then.... Thank you so much for your help!!! I truly appreciate it!!!
  21. I was thinking maybe it's better if I put N/A in the 3 blanks and then write a letter explaining why.... I would like to hear your opinion!!!
  22. Well, the internships that I did were included in the Nursing program... It was like classes.. I had an evaluation and I needed to have a good grade to pass... So maybe I will fill the blank like this: #1 (Preliminary Information) d. I worked in Portugal as Licensed Nurse for N/A years. And then I write a letter explaining that I am a new grad without a truly experience itself and maybe I describe the internships I did... What do you think... I am really concerned about this... Thank you...
  23. in the item #1 (preliminary information) of the application form itself, what should i put in the item d.? i am a new grad, so i just have internships experience... should i put n/a? you could put your internship experience and where is states professional capasity put some think med/surg internship so, what you are saying is to do like an average of my internships hours during my 4 years of nursing education and then fill the blank, or just do an average of my med/surg internships?? thanks silvergragon... you help me a lot.... there is a lot of paper and burocracy and we get some point that we start to feel confused!!!
  24. What is the pearsonvue? This is really confusing for me.... What about the other questions I did before?. Is anybody that can answer it please?! Thank you again...
  25. And other question... The score to pass the TOEFL ibt is 83 or 85? I just can apply for NCLEX after pass the TOEFL, rigth? Thanks again!!!
