im an RN who finished my exams...and applying for VSC

i just ordered online...

1. checkin GC for visa is correct for RNs?am i right? im just checking if i did the process correctly..pls let me know

2. i have already done CES but my order status for passing english score, transcript validation and etc are still "WAITING TO BE RECEIVED"...

how can i let them know that i already sent those documents when i availed CES before?

If you are applying for immigrant visa then yes GC is correct

If you have already received CES then I wouldn't worry too much about documents but wait. Takes approx 4 months to get VSC

Retrogression is still ongoing so all she can do is wait, visa will not be given if the hospital still doesn't want her so she needs to check up on that

Hello Silverdragon...I kinda needed your help.!

I just passed my california NCLEX exam this december. Now, I wanted to know the process needed to transfer my license from the california to Alaska. Alaska requires CGFNS before taking NCLEX, so I'm just wondering if Alaska would still require a CGFNS certification if I file for a "Licensure by examination."

By the way my parents live in Alaska so i wanted to practice there. I just took the California NCLEX to bypass CGFNS like most foreign educated nurses are doing nowadays. Thank you in advance!!!

do you have a ssn and if so was a license issued by ca?

you may have to contact the bon and discuss this with them. as i look at their site they still require cgfns exam this comes from this statement

registered nurse applicants who graduated from a school of nursing outside of the united states or canada must provide verification of successful completion of the examination administered by the commission on graduates of foreign nursing schools.

so going to another state to bypass cgfns hasn't really helped and will probably cost you more money. i can't see anything to say they will accept your license as endorsement having passed nclex in another state

i don't have ssn yet. my father petitioned me and i'll be flying to usa this year and hope to get the license immediately. so for example i passed cgfns, will i be able to file "licensure by examination" without any problems? or will i still have to take another nclex exam?

i actually have relatives in california, but i still prefer to practice in alaska.

NCLEX is a national exam and only taken the once, you shouldn't have to take it again as long as you meet the requirements set down by the BON.

I would say only exception to resitting the exam is if a long time has lapsed and you haven't maintained nurse experience and the BON determine whether you need to sit it again or not.

Start the procedure now and contact the BON. If you do have to take CGFNS exam it is only held certain times of the year so you can get the process started with that, they require local exam, English exam as well as all documents sent to then but wait for reply from BON first (ask them if you still need to sit CGFNS exam or will the fact CA cleared you and you passed NCLEX is enough or can the CES be used instead)
