hi I am a registered nurse in the Philippines. I am currently residing here in Bellevue Nebraska. I would like to ask if what are the other states here in US where I can take the NCLEX without CGFNS?

thank you

Majority of states require CES done by CGFNS. Only a handful require CGFNS exam. Some may require assessment done by another agency. Can only think of CA that doesn't and NY requires CVS by CGFNS. CA however requires a US SSN to accept application

What is SSN stands for Silverdragon? Thank you.

CA have become more strict with their requirements so many international trained nurses are having issues

Most states require CGFNS these days although some do use another service however I do not have a list, you have to do your own search but generally better to go with state you plan on living in unless a US SSN is required as requirements still have to be met. Also if visa screen is required CGFNS can use the same documents if they have to do CES and all you need to do is verify via the state you passed NCLEX
