good day! im a nurse from the phils who passed the NCLEX last december 2008. i recently applied for the visa screen certification program of CGFNS, and part of the requirements include the license verification. i sent an email to NJ BON regarding the fees and the things i needed to do for the verification process. however, they always replied that i still dont have a license yet so verification is not possible. so now im stuck! i dont know how to go about this anymore. the verification is the last document i need for my visa screen. please help me! :crying2:

They should be able to send a letter stating that you meet their requirements. I am sure that is what California do as they do not issue licenses without SSN

mmmh, normally you only need the confirmation that you've passed NCLEX, are they waiting maybe for your philippines licence verification???

Are you a credible source? Add your Credentials, Experience, etc.

nope. all of my other documents are already with them since i underwent the CES program for NJ. its also frustrating that they keep on telling me that they cant verify since i dont have a license without telling me the kind of verification or request that i need to get. i even specified that it is for the visa screen and that im a foreign educated nurse. :scrying:

Ok:) I just double checked on the CGFNS site. The nursing board needs to verify the successful completion of NCLEX-RN. That's all, I would imagine they send a verification letter.

They just need a letter. There are a few states like California that will not issue license without SSN and members there have received their VSC with no problems

thanks for your replies Silverdragon102 and 5cats. :)

so does that mean that i do not have to send the license verification form found in the visa screen packet and that i just have to write NJ BON a letter requesting for them to send some form of correspondence to CGFNS?

Exactly, BON needs to verify that you passed NCLEX.

i wrote them a few days ago, here's what i wrote:

i am a nurse from the philippines. i recently availed of cgfns' visa screen certification program. in connection to this, i would like to request for nj bon to send a correspondence, which would verify that i have already passed the nclex. i took the exam last december 02, 2008. i hope you could guide me with the steps needed and fees to be paid for my request to be processed.

here's the reply:

the board does not mail exam results until your file is complete with immigration documents and a ss #. exam results do not expire, we will continue to hold them until you have acquired all documents

new jersey board of nursing

examination section

once again, im confused. :confused:

I agree it's not a very helpful answer,lol

I suggest to ring them and explain the procedure, that you need visascreen to sort out immigration, for visascreen you need verification that you passed NCLEX and that this letter needs to be mailed directly to CGFNS NOT to you.

Good luck

If that doesn't work contact CGFNS and see what they say, you will need to talk to one of the guys from visascreen. Maybe they can write sth to the board.
