What Our Applicants Say

Since 1977, CGFNS has been at the forefront of providing opportunity to nurses who wish to migrate to energize the countries they are migrating to and quite often, the countries they return to, transforming themselves and their families in the process.

We at CGFNS salute nurses who create change in healthcare policy, in migration, in society, in their own lives—and most of all, in the health and well-being of those they care for.

Sponsored by the American Association of Nurse Practitioners, National Nurse Practitioner Week is held November 8-14 to celebrate the countless contributions of Nurse Practitioners to healthcare and raise awareness around ways to improve their ability to practice to the full extent of their experience and education.

According to the WHO's State of the World's Nursing Report 2020, at least 78 countries have advanced practice nursing roles, of which the most common are nurse practitioners, with the number of masters in nursing programs and nurse practitioners growing around the world. Given their broad clinical scope, adequately trained nurse practitioners are highly effective at providing quality healthcare, enhancing access to healthcare in rural areas and for vulnerable populations, and improving patient satisfaction.

As the world’s largest credentials evaluation organization specializing in the healthcare sector and a leading authority on the nursing profession globally since 1977, CGFNS proudly salutes the exceptional work of Nurse Practitioners everywhere and recognizes the important role they play in advancing access to quality healthcare worldwide.
