Credentials Evaluation Service Academic Report

What is the Credentials Evaluation Service Academic Report?

This report is designed to meet the needs of applicants pursuing further education in U.S. institutions of higher learning.

The CGFNS International Credentials Evaluation Service (CES) Academic Report provides a detailed analysis of the nursing education received outside the United States. Nurses use this service primarily for academic admissions purposes. Other healthcare professionals and report recipients desiring a comprehensive analysis of education also find this report helpful.

The CES Academic Report is advisory in nature and does not make specific placement recommendations.
