Thank you and hope to hear from you soon.

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?

Hi Jacinta
I’m in the same boat. I just got my CGFNS report and I have deficiencies in clinical experience in pediatrics and theory and clinical experience in maternal/infant nursing. I haven’t heard from the Kansas Board of Nursing yet but now I’m worried no one will let me just take those classes! Did you eventually get them done?

I came to the US from Chile. After working as a RN, I started working with the same NCLEX review course that helped me pass the license exam.

The company is called Feuer Nursing Review and we help many international nurses pass their NCLEX-RN or NCLEX-LPN tests. We have live classes in NYC and online courses available 24/7.

I'd be happy to help anyone with questions about the NCLEX!

Hi Chloe
I eventually gave up :( i was working this the state board to find a uni or college but none of them wanted to take a student for just a few subjects. You might have better luck in your state though!!

It's been a while but I did hear/read that there was an education centre in California but I wasn't prepared to move to California for the short term .

So frustrating :(

Good luck! I'd love to know if you have any success

Hi! Maybe one of you had the same situation as I have. My cgfns report was not comparable, because I have been graduated from primary school,not from high school. However, I completed high school's program in vacationed school. And these 2 classes they didn't accept.
Please if you faced with this situation,feel free call back .

Hi Angelica, I´m from Chile too! I was wondering if you would have a minute to talk to me about the Credential Verification process and NCLEX. I,ve waited 6 months and don´t have any response from CGFNS. I was considering going directly through NY State but don,t want to cancel anything with CGFNS yet. Any help is appreciated!

My best friend just passed her exams to medical school, all thanks to Arthur Vitali who hacked and boosted her grades without leaving a single trace. I am so very grateful to him and I promised to post his contact all over the net. Contact Arthur on EMAIL- quickarturhack@gmail.com OR KIK- Arturquickhack
He also helped me hack an entire phone and I could view the entire phone activities from my computer. I will write a book about him if I keep going. He offers a long list of other services.
