Question:

toefl : any progress wd my toefl exam sched?no word form exodushr until now..I applied to take the exam this month. 

Answer:   

If the application was submitted, then it will take a while to get the test confirmation. Why dont you email Exodus directly and get an update?

 

Question:

TOEFL : Just passed the TOEFL exam..Who's the right person to contact instead of EXODUSHR regarding the next step? 

Answer:   

Congratulations! You can contact the hospital HR person, Amy or Kim. Also the immigration attorney assigned to your case.

 

Question:

TOEFL : I'm a BSN in Brazil and,although I have lived and studied my entire life here,I'm an American Citizen and speak fluent English.I'm interested in taking the CGFNS to work in the USA.Do I need to take the TOEFL first? 

Answer:   

Because you have completed your education in Brazil, you will need the TOEFL. However, you can take the TOEFL after you have completed your CGFNS exams. You can also skip the CGFNS, if your state allows and just take NCLEX®, as you are in the US now. You can check out your state nursing board and their requirements for foreign educated nurses. If you wish to get your RN in state like California or Arizona, you will not need to take the CGFNS exam, which is a predictor test for NCLEX®. You can just apply for NCLEX®...through that state.

Question:

CGFNS: march 13 2002 exam result- I am Maribelle A B*** of *****. My CGFNS ID is ******* and my birthdate is ****. I took the CGFNS Exam last 13 March 2002 here in Manila. I havent received my result yet.Thank you. :  

Answer:   

You will need to direct your question to the CGFNS, not to me. CGFNS will accept fax or email, In my experience, these delays are usually related the the PRC not sending your license verification. Have you passed TOEFL and has TOEFL sent the score to CGFNS? That will also delay the issuance of your certificate.

 

Question:

CGFNS review center in kuwait: There's a CGFNS review center in ABBASSIYA, Kuwait. It is run by well experienced, CGFNS passed MSn. professor. If anyone from kuwait asks for info. regarding review classes u can ask them to contact the mail address :francisxavier90@hotmail.com :  

Answer:   

Sounds like a great resource for nurses in Kuwait.

 

Question:

CGFNS Passer : Hi My sister is a CGFNS passer and she just took the TOEFL and TSE. Is there a way you can help her find a job here in the USA or even tell us whatis needed to be done to start her application. Thanks a lot. Hoping for your immediate response.  

Answer:   

Yes, I can help your sister. She will need her TOEFL, for an I 140 AND A US EMPLOYER SPONSOR. Her resume must indicate what clinical areas she has worked, the bed size of the unit and the hospital and duration of experience. Special skills in IV or equipment should be identified. If she does the resume in WORD, she can attach it to an email to me and I will be able to open it and read it. I will then circulate her resume amongst hiring managers within CHW.

 

Question:

CGFNS : Is there a job hiring in the states or outside the country that does not require CGFNS? 

Answer:   

You can also qualify for the green card with a NCLEX® rather than a CGFNS. But, the CGFNS is only a US institution. UK and KSA, or Australia do not have this requirement.

 

Question:

CGFNS E : can you provide me with the schedule of cgfns exams? 

Answer:   

PLease go the link on this web site for the CGFNS. I know the next exam is in NOv and the last day to apply is August 14th. The schedule is on the CGFNS web site.

 
        NCLEX® (Top 5 View All Here)

Question:

NCLEX® exam: Good day! Is it possible to take California NCLEX® in Saipan? :  

Answer:   

Yes. NCLEX® is the same for all US states. However, since you must apply through a state, you can apply through California and then take the NCLEX® in Saipan. However, California will no longer issue a license without a social security number. If you plan on using your license in lieu of the CGFNS exam, then you must have a full and unrestricted RN license in the state of the US employer sponsor.

 

Question:

NCLEX-RN inquiry : I am a CGFNS PASSER had TOEFL with satisfactory result,got NCLEX-RN BULLETIN and the WA STATE application form ,:A)Can I take a NCLEX-RN without a SS no.?B)Can I submit my application form while I,m here or need to mailed from our country(PHILIPPINES)? 

Answer:   

I am not familiar with the requirements of the Board of Nursing in Washington state. Some states do require a social security number. Have you looked at their web site? If you are in the USA, you can obtain a US Employer sponsor. If you are in the USA, I would like to talk with you.

 

Question:

NCLEX application for exam in Guam or Saipan : Where can I request for NCLEX applications? I dont have a social security number can I still take the test in Guam or Saipan? Where can I get a list of exam dates in Guam or Saipan? 

Answer:   

Not all states require a social security number. California does not nor does New Mexico. If you apply for NCLEX® through a state that does not require a social security number, then you can choose Guam or Saipan as your preferred testing site. Tests are given 5 to 6 days per week, depending upon the test center. The nurse receives an approval from NCLEX® and then calls to make an appointment.

 

Question:

NCLEX® : I intent to go to Calif. for my nursing job. So,can I skip CGFNS and take NCLEX in Guam or Saipan. 

Answer:   

Yes. California is one of the states that does not require the CGFNS exam in order to be approved to sit for NCLEX®. You can skip CGFNS exam in many cases. Although my home state, Arizona, currently requires the CGFNS exam, they will endorse a foreign educated nurse who is licensed in aother non-CGFNS state such as California. Arizona does require that the nurse obtain a CGFNS Credential review of their transcripts and validation from the PRC, in the case of the Philippines.

 

Question:

NCLEX ATT : I'm planning to apply RN Licensure in Arizona State Board, as I know one of the requirements is to have an SSS number in the application form, will I be given ATT for NCLEX or release my license if pass? 

Answer:   

Arizona does not require a social security license for foreign educated nurses based overseas. You will get a social security number after arrival in US with proper work permit. Other states do require this social security number at the time of application and this can pose a problem for the nurse who has never been to USA and cannot apply until all required goverment forms has been provided.
