Check out the sticky in the International forum called Primer to working in the US It has all the information that is required for you to get licensure in the US and being able to sit the NCLEX. Firstly you need to decide on where you want to live in the US and I would then do a search in the international forum for threads for that state and take it from there. There are a couple of states not recommended for initial application the main one being CA as takes several weeks before you get your results plus they do not issue license until you have a valid SSN which you can not get until you are in the US with a valid work permit so anywhere it asks for one just leave it blank.

I would check out the International forum as there will be plenty of information there for you

Hi! I dont know if I posted on the right thread but, Im just wondering how many months would it take If I would go for NY state board? I read it somewhere that CA state board take longer because of a lot of people are taking CA board. Thanks.

which state are you wanting to work? If you go through NY and do CVS but then endorse to another state you will have to follow what ever requirements are for that state ie they will either do their own evaluation like CA or request you have CES done

are you aware that by all accounts it is very hard to get a hospital in the ny to petition for a gc. nursing homes are an option but for a foreign nurse it is very hard with large patient workloads and a risk to your license whilst you are getting used to working in a different way.

cvs is a requirement for ny

vsc is a requirement for immigration unless you are entering through a different route ie fiance/marriage

don't worry about asking questions but would suggest a good read and using the search facility as many questions may have already been asked plus you may find answers to questions you haven't thought off

good luck

NY takes longer than CA because of the CVS for NY.

I would say the first step is where do you want to live? What that state BON would have a slight bearing on which BON you need to apply to. Once you have decided you complete requirements for that state BON for foreign trained. You may need CES doing or they may do their own evaluation or if New York they have their own requirements with CGFNS (CVS)

For example if you apply to NY BON (CVS) but then endorse to AZ you will need to get CES done first before you endorse, same if you went the other way, which in turn costs time and money.

ah..ok..so if I'm planning to work and live in Chicago..i should apply directly to their BON and not to CA BON where it is easier to apply for they don't require the CES, unlike in Illinois BON, before they decide if you can sit for the nclex exam..?!
