CGFNS is a qualifying examination that every foreign trained nurse needs to take to work in the US. Whether you are a registered nurse through a graduate program or Diploma, you need to clear this examination to work in the US. The exam is conducted in various parts of the world and is organized by the Commission of Graduates of Foreign Nursing Schools.
To practice the profession of nursing in the United States, all nurses are required to take the NCLEX-RN examination in the US, for the particular state. A passing score must be obtained to be designated Registered Nurse or an RN.
The NCLEX-RN is a computerized test and test results are forwarded to the individual State Board of Nursing who will then notify the nurse of their test outcome. Simultaneously, licenses are issued to candidates that have successfully passed the exam.
Approximately 85% of the states require a CGFNS certificate from foreign-trained nurses before they are allowed to take the NCLEX-RN.
California, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Maryland, and South Carolina do not require CGFNS as a precursor in order to take the NCLEX-RN exam. New York is independent in its process of educational evaluation for foreign-trained nurses. New York does not require the CGFNS, however still uses CGFNS in its process.
For nurses who have not undertaken their professional training in the United States, Canada or the UK, the American immigration process re-quires you to take either the IELTS (International English Language Testing
System) or the TOEFL/TSE (Test of English as a Foreign Language/Test of Spoken English) tests. It is the standard examination for many universities entrance exams for those whose first language is not English. Countries such as the United States, and Canada accept it.
TSE is an international test designed to measure oral proficiency in the English language. The examinee is given some speech tasks which include functions such as providing directions, telling a story, speaking on a
given topic and so on. Responses are recorded via tape for evaluation by
experts. In order to be placed abroad, a score of 50 or more is required rather than a band of score of 20 – 60.The test is conducted in various locations worldwide, including numerous centers in India.
