I tried the CES but Cgfns didn't give me a comparability because my linsence was a midwifery linsence but I have been authorised to take the Cgfns exams. Please help with comments. Thank you and hope to hear from you soon.

Cynthia, eti sen? Am in a similar situation. I did mental health, and have been turned down by New York state. Please share your experience with me. How do I get to write the CGFNS exams? So stressed out.

Hello everyone! I want to share my experience about how to become a RN in the USA when you already studied Nursing abroad.
First, I studied Nursing in my native country Peru, I got my BSN there. Then I worked as a RN for two years until I moved with my husband to the USA. When I got here, I started the paperwork to validate my Peruvian BSN. I did the whole process through CGFNS. CGFNS asks you for your transcript from the school or college you had attended as well as you for your BSN certificate (more things that you can find in their official website). Anyway then I had to choose where I wanted to get my license so I choose Maryland. After that CGFNS has to assess all your paperwork to see if this comparable to a BSN in the USA, fortunately mine was comparable and I didn't have to take a extra course. Then CGFNS will tell you to take the English test (if the board of nursing where you applying requires it). After you pass the English test you may need to start the paperwork through your Board of nursing. You will receive a package with the steps to follow. So you need to do background check,take your finger prints and all that staff. Once you have completed all this, your board of nursing will give you your authorization to test (ATT). You may need to choose when to take the NCLEX-RN test. So I did it. I passed the NCLEX test on my second try. However, since I was out of nursing field for more that 3 years my board of nursing required me to take a Refresher course. I just fished it last August. Now I'm a Active RN looking for a job. Here is where it starts. No jobs. Nursing field in this area is so saturated I can't find a job. I had applied on VA, MD, DC. not response from anyone. I had applied for many positions in many hospitals.I don't want to discourage anyone, just I'm telling my experience and let you know whats going on now.

Hello,
I came across your messages on indeed.com website. I have a question and would be so grateful if you provide me any advice or guidance. I hold a master's degree in midwifery. Midwifery is a branch of nursing in my country but a direct entry program at the same time. CGFNS reported as follows on my application:
"There is no comparable program of education in the
United States, since entrance into a midwifery program in
the United States requires completion of a general
registered nurse program.The applicant had also educational deficiencies in the
following:
- 0 hours of clinical practice completed in Psychiatric/Mental Health Nursing (excluding neurology)."
Because of their report the Minnesota Board of Nursing turned down my application. Would you tell me who did you get them to authorize you to take the RN exam?
