On behalf of CGFNS International, our Board of Trustees, and our staff, we are proud to stand in solidarity with the people of Ukraine. Alongside the global community we support the nurses and allied healthcare professionals currently trying to provide aid and comfort to those in need. We join the call for the upholding of all the human rights protections of these vital workers as mandated by the Geneva Convention and international regulations.
We have served nurses and healthcare professionals since we opened our doors in 1977. While we follow strict requirements for evaluating credentials, we realize that during this time of crisis, access to credentials from Ukrainian institutions may be impeded and impacted. For any Ukrainian applicants, we encourage you to click here to receive updates on our procedures that are being made in an effort to accommodate for this current crisis.
To the citizens of Ukraine: We send our support. We applaud your courage. And we hope for peace.
