Secondary school information
A secondary school diploma or an external exam certificate showing highest level of secondary education received. Secondary school (high school) is intermediate between elementary (primary school) school and university, usually offering general, technical, vocational, or university-preparatory courses.
All documents must be in English. Secondary school diplomas can be translated by an applicant or someone chosen by an applicant. If you are unavailable to provide an English translation, then CGFNS can translate documents for an additional fee.
Professional education information
CGFNS will need to receive a complete academic record or transcript directly from each educational institution the applicant attended for the nursing profession being evaluated.
These documents must be in English and translated by the educational institution(s) that the applicant has attended/completed. If the educational institution(s) is unavailable to provide an English translation, then CGFNS will be able to translate documents for an additional fee.
