Application fee increase for Illinois licensure

I just got confirmation that CTS, which handles applications for nurse licensure in Illinois, has increased the application fee from $79 to $82. Both CTS' Web site and the application packet that can be downloaded from the Illinois Dept. of Financial and Professional Regulation Web site shows the fee increase.

Geoff,

What if I have already submitted my CTS application last year (but they haven't received the CGFNS document so they still can't process my application) along with my payment -- do I still have to pay the difference? Or is it applicable only to new applicants?

Geoff said...

I believe the fee increase only took effect this year, so you may be spared from that. Anyways, you'll be advised if an additional payment is needed. At this point, CTS is likely to be waiting only for your CES report.

Thank you Geoff!

Hi Geoff, do you have any idea as to how long will it take for endorsement from Vermont to Illinois? Ty

Geoff said...

It's difficult to say exactly how long an andorsement application goes. Among other things, the availability of the needed documents, how fast it gets delivered, and the volume of applications both at CGFNS (CES report) and CTS would influence how long an application gets done.

I would guess upwards of three months, assuming you have everything ready.

Hello Sir, checked my CES application status at the cgfns.org, says there that its READY FOR REVIEW. In your experience how long did it take your CES report na nasubmit sa CTS? Salamat

Our application from that point on took about less than a week before the report was issued.

thank you so much mr. geoff for all the information, I've learned a lot from you. If you would have enough time, could I ask an outline or a step by step procedure on how to apply for US Illinois license? CES report first,how to send TOR from school registrar, fingerprinting card, how to pay,TOEFL, NCLEX? It gets so mixed up in my mind. SOrry for the bother. Thank you!

Geoff, i am a first-timer applicant to Illinois State for NCLEX RN..
i would like to ask if how can i obtain the 12-digit-Test Code and 4-digit-Test Center Code in my Application form i downloaded from idfpr website.
Their reference sheet is somewhat vague regarding how to fill-this up.

and how much will i attach to my application form as a money order to CTS? is it $82 only?
their form stated that i have to pay $200 to NCSBN? is NCSBN equivalent to PEARSON VUE?
