If you already have cgfns , then it could be used to file for you BUT YOU STILL NEED TO TAKE NCLEX WHEN YOU GET TO USA.
HOWEVER IF YOU HAVE NOT WRITTEN CGFNS EXAM, PLEASE IT'S BETTER YOU WRITE NCLEX INSTEAD OF CGFNS.
After writing cgfns exam, One still needs to write nclex.

I am 100%in. But I have already started the process with avant. And these agencies always ask if one has started the process with any other agency before. I don't know why they ask though

30-36 months is the contract duration for shearwater health.
If you have signed up with an agency, then continue with that agency to avoid breach of contract. But if a contract has not been signed at all, YOU MAY CONSIDER SIGNING UP WITH SHEARWATER HEALTH.

Hi,
Please do you know if shearwater health provides bonuses for nurses who are self sponsored and have passed the NCLEX?
