Hi,

Does anybody has any info. regarding which states requires CP before nclex? & which states requires CES or CVS before nclex? I just checked cgfns website to get this info. but I guess it's not updated because it's still showing NJ requires CP.

Thanks for your reply. NCSBN web site has list of states but it takes time to search with each state to get info. & cgfns web site has not updated,may be they will update later. but thank anyways.

I think its best that you pick 1-3 states that you would want to work or endorse to then search their initial application and endorsement req'ts. Foreign nurses endorsing to another state will STILL have to undergo another state BON endorsement req'ts and their are some instances that it is much better to apply outright to the state you want to work and live rather than apply to a "fast" state or a state w/ affordable fees because you will STILL have to do the endorsement reqt's of that state.

Good example is NY. In this case, it's better to just apply directly to NY (CVS for NY) rather than apply first to another state w/c you may think is "faster" or more "affordable" then apply to NY. Why? Because NY will still require you to accomplish the CVS for NY eventhough you might be licensed in another state already. So, by doing this you'd be actually effectively delaying yourself and spent more fees instead.

So, just pick a handful of state BONs then just compare each other's pros and cons and take it from their.

Goodluck.;)
