CGFNS Verification for Nursing Professionals
The CGFNS, known as the Commission on Graduates of Foreign Nursing Schools, is an organization that assesses the qualifications of internationally-educated nurses seeking employment in the U.S. This includes verifying the individual’s identity documents, academic and professional credentials, and nursing employment history. The organization’s goal is to ensure that internationally educated nurses have the necessary qualifications and education to practice safely and effectively in the US.
Procedure of CGFNS Verification
- Application: Start by submitting an application to CGFNS, providing personal and educational information.
- Credential Evaluation: CGFNS reviews your educational credentials, including transcripts, nursing program details, and licences. They assess the equivalency of your education to the standards required for nursing practice in the United States.
- English Language Proficiency: Demonstrate English language proficiency by providing test scores, such as TOEFL or IELTS, to meet CGFNS requirements.
- CGFNS Qualifying Exam: Take the CGFNS Qualifying Exam, which assesses your nursing knowledge and ability to practice safely in the U.S. healthcare system.
- Credential Verification: CGFNS verifies the authenticity of your credentials, including licenses, registrations, and any other relevant documents.
- Visa Screen: Upon successful completion of the above steps, you can apply for a Visa Screen certificate from CGFNS. This certificate is often required for internationally-educated nurses seeking a U.S. work visa.
