UK trained nurse who just got the ATT from NY BON


Hey Nurses,

I have just received my ATT from NY BON and it feels so good?

This is how i got the approval. I have always wanted to move to the States ever since i qualified few years ago but i never got round to doing anything about it. But late last year, i finally decided to start the process. I looked for an agency who was willing to employ me and help me with the process.

My application was sent directly by the agency to NYBON early November with 1f form , my university sent my transcripts with a 2F form directly to NY and NMC sent the verification of license to NY via online. This is a faster process compare to using CGFNS. There was a bit of a delay with my application because NMC has a new process in place but NY wasn't aware of this so NY kept asking for a paper copy of the verification. I had to keep calling NYBON to relate this new process to them. Eventually NY accepted the verification via online. Few weeks laters i received my approval letter via email.

I am glad i did not give up because a lot of people in this forum stated that UK trained nurses do not have the required hours to qualify for Nclex. Although i did a 2 week mental health placement but never did a placement in Gynea, labour or peads ward. But my transcript did include 75 hours of peads and OBs cos i did few weeks placement in ANE and i had the opportunity to care for children and pregnant women.

Nclex next???
