Hi Suzanne and other members..
I am Johanna.. and new here.
.. I just registered today after reading the postings. I recieved that link from someone in a different forum, trying to find some help regarding CGFNS. I have spend the last two years trying to get registered for the CGFNS Exam. After endless calls to them and many, many letters I am so :angryfire . I am sure that I did do a lot wrong with filling out my paperwork, but it is very confusing !! Since it still hasnt brought me any closer to my RN License, I am trying NY!
I finished nursing school in Germany and worked five years. I have secondary school to cover my high school diploma and I have also taken the TOEFL already, which probably will expire soon anyways...
With my husband being in the Military, I do have a Green Card and SSN. Since we are not sure where our next tour will station us, I would like to prepare and work on getting my license, but not waste any more time on CGFNS Exam, since I found out it is not needed anyway. I found out, that NY will issue me a license ( after, of course going through the application etc. ) and this will be exepted in other states ( after again some paperwork ) .
Suzanne, did I understand all this correctly? I am trying to avoid asking the same questions again and again. Sorry..
I have printed the NY Application ( Form 1 ) and found the link for CGFNS. Now, of course my questions: Do I file them at the same time? And do both of them have to be notarized? The way I see it, I just send in the Forms and $$ and they take care at anything else?
An personal issue: Since we do not know, where the military will station us next and mostly important when, how good is a license for? I would want to get my license (NY) let us say end 2006 and not be able to go to the states to work for the next four years. How long do I have, untill I will have to go through everything over again?
@ Moni... thank You for the link. It is really helpfull !!
Suzanne, thank You for your time and information.
Have a great day,
Thank You so much...
