I have researched this case on behalf of my niece who wants to apply in the State of Texas and what I found out is that you don't need a qualifying exam from CGFNS. However, you need a Credentials Evaluation Service(CES): Full Education Course-by-Course Report from CGFNS which is $328. Once you get the approval of CES, this is the key to get your permission to sit for the NCLEX-PN or NCLEX-RN exams. The rest of the requirements are FBI FingerPrint cards, $139 payable to Texas Board of Examiners, Registration with NCS Pearson/VUE to take NCLEX with $200 fee, certification from your school that all courses were conducted in English to exempt the candidate to take the TOEFL test, and 2" X 2" passport photo.
