Hello Silverdragon102,

Thanks for your advise, i probably might consider doing the RN program now.

Be aware that retrogression may still be in play when you qualify as a RN and may not be able to stay in the US and work.

To Silverdragon or anyone else that may help.

There are several different addresses listed for the IL Department of Financial and Professional Regulation. Which address do I send the request for validation of registration?

Thank you in advance for your help.

hi. i just would like to ask some questions.

i applied for cgfns CES before i got my philippine nursing license. now i'm planning to apply for cgfns VISASCREEN, do i need to request for validation of my philippine license to cgfns?

if so, will they charge me for that?

i recently passed the nclex and IELTS last january. will cgfns automatically be informed of my results?

I applied to CGFNS in March of 08 submitted all documentation, paid for a Visa Screen ( not knowing that the Visa Screen was too early to apply for BUT I paid the money and they took it...) then, once CGFNS finished with the professional application, they then forwarded it to the Florida Board of Nursing and then the FBON, gave me the application Number to sit for the NCLEX exam at Pearson Vue....once I wrote the exam and passed, the results sent to the FBON, "YOU" then have to pay an additional $25.00 for them to send the result of your NCLEX to CGFNS, who then process your Visa Screen. ( I did not know that I had to pay and extra fee for this process, so I waited another 2 months before I called Florida and CGFNS till I found out what happened.)

So CGFNS had my money for the Visa Screen for almost 1 year...

I wrote the NCLEX exam in Nov.08 and the Visa Screen was issued to me Feb 09

I hope you can understand the chain of events that happened, and now I am in the process of applying for a TN Visa to work in Florida

I have jumped through so many hoops, that I feel I am at my last straw

Hope this helps you

Sincerely

C

yes. since i read carlee's reply, i tried checking the maryland board of nursing website. under their "schedule of fees" section, you will find this - Visa Screen Verification $25.00. try checking your board of nursing site.

Yes, I had to pay the Florida Board of Nursing an additonal $25.00 us for them to forward my results to CGFNS

so that they would complete my Visa Screen.

I found work in Dunedin Florida, but still working on completion of my TN, as I am not ready to go just yet

will be ready by the end of Oct. as my Orientation date is set for Nov 9th.....providing all paper work for the border crossing is complete and they accept it.

Thank you Carlee. I have no idea what to do about the IL board as I can't find the information about 25.00 anywhere in the literature.
