CGFNS should be able to reuse forms already submitted to them. They need results from NCLEX to show you passed. Is there anything in the handbook?

hello, im a little bit confused regarding visascreen, ichp or 212 ® certified statement. I am educated in the philippines but also studied in an approved school in canada for my professsional integration program. textbooks were in english. In my application for visa screen, when i check for my personal file overview. ICHP is being marked. thats because i put philippines as my entry level of education. any thoughts about this before i send my application? I am asking because i passed my nclex and i am licensed in one of the 5 states to be eligible for 212 ® so i dont have to take the english test.

It would be best to ask this question directly to the visa screen company. I recently used CGFNS to certify an overseas education. I was required to pay for the English as a second language test which I was exempted from taking as my entire education was in English, English is the national language. It was ridiculous, but it was required.

It doesn't matter if you get it. You follow their procedure or you don't get the visa screen. Nursys is for BoN to BoN or for employer verification.

@ tosca rose

Are you waived from the ENGLISH language result to get the Visascreen Certificate since you have the education background form John Abbott College?

Thanks for your reply!

CGFNS are profit driven! I have used them twice. After the first time I paid them to store my documents. When I was forced to use them a second time they informed me they couldn't just resend the report they had already prepared to the new BON or use the documents I was paying them to store. That's right I had to pay them again to create another report with all the same information including arranging to have all my documents resend. 

Thank goodness I now have a multi state license. My advice is deal with CGFNS, its painful and expensive, then get a multi state license as soon as you can!
