New Mexico licensure applicants now need CES

Foreign-educated applicants of nursing licensure in New Mexico now need to get a Credentials Evaluation Service (CES) report as part of the requirements for NCLEX eligibility. The New Mexico Board of Nursing issued an updated application handbook, which takes effect this month.

The NM BON has accredited four agencies that issue a CES report:
Educational Records Evaluation Service, International Education Research, Joseph Silney and Associates, and the Commission on Graduates of International Education (CGFNS).

When applying for a CES report, choose the agency that is also accredited by other states so that in case you need to submit one to another state (for endorsement, for example) you won't have to pay for a new one.

Click here to read the new requirements for nurse applicants in New Mexico.

IVT seminar in Martinez Memorial Hospital

A reader shares us that Martinez Memorial Hospital in Kalookan is still accepting applicants for its March IVT seminar. Call to inquire about the requirements (632)288-8861 and apply in person. I'm not sure if the hospital or the college is conducting the seminar, but a short phone call should resolve this question.

Another reader tells us that the hospital is conducting the training. You can also call this number 285-5091. Thanks for the tip.
