For nurses educated outside the United States, all U.S. State Boards of Nursing require credentials evaluation, certification, or verification as a first-step in the application process. Specific requirements differ by state.
CGFNS International meets the specific requirements of each state through the following services:
To apply, nurse applicants may be required to provide evidence of an unencumbered license or registration from the issuing authority where entry-level nursing education was completed.
Certain healthcare professionals, who are not U.S. citizens and are seeking an occupational visa to work in the United States, are required to complete a credentials screening program. CGFNS International is authorized by the U.S. government to perform this screening under our VisaScreen®:Visa Credentials Assessment Program.
Nurses looking to pursue further education in the United States should take advantage of our Credentials Evaluation Service Academic Report®.
