    Before you send in anything to CA, if you do not have a SSN#, then it is most definitely not advised. Much has been written on it, just do a search.

    A bend is okay, they do not want the fingerprint part with any folds in it.

    sorry.... if i had use my internet for searching i would have encountered this website and i should have never made this mistake. my bad suzanne.. but the SS# sux big time. ;0. hehe
    Your country will not even permit a foreign nurse to get licensed there, let alone work there as an RN. So why can someone complain of a requirement for the SSN# in the US?

    Just makes no sense at all to me.

    thanks suzanne! one last question. the bent i was referring is in the right thumb area. it's a slight bend from mailing. like a coupon bond can never be really bent free. strictly speaking, a fold is when you literally fold the hard card right?

    i'm really sorry for the clarification but i hope you could give your opinion on this. thanks!

    Hi Suzanne and others I just want to ask, if the 3 yrs have lapsed and one wasn't able to supply their ssn# to cali boards will it mean that the person should take the NCLEX exam again after passing but failing to supply an ssn#? can one reapply in other states?

    If it is more than 3 years and Ca have destroyed the file then the NCLEX results would have also been destroyed so you probably have to sit the exam again even if you go to another state. You will need to start the application from the beginning even if going to another state

    for others who might need help on their fingerprint cards, a slight bend on any part is okay for as long as it's not folded. that's where my confusion was before. my fingerprint cards got accepted even if there was a slight bend due to mailing at the lower right corner.

    hello.. good day to all. i already sent my nclex application (california) last july 2008 thru FEDEX and i haven't receive any answer or letter up to now regarding it... some of my friends received a letter from the BON and some already received their eligibility... I'm just wandering why i haven't received mine. I just want to follow it up and I hope my application will be processed soon... Or if I have any lacking documents and mistakes regarding my application, I also hope that I may be notified... Thank you and Godbless...:wink2:

    are your friends licensed already? i mean, those who received their eligibility? how long did they wait for their papers to be processed?

    dnt get why many of you still chose cali as your initial licensure when there is no license given to you if ever you pass the nclex-rn exam due to SSN requirment. with the retrogression thing right now i dnt think you can provide the ssn requirement with in the 3 yrs span allowance given to you by the cali brn if you manage to pass the exam. anyway im not against to those who are into cali but take time in chosing your state. make into consideration on the retrogression thing and what state do give license regardless of no SSN thing.

    Takes average 4-6 months for Ca to give eligibility

    for ysabella.

    we're all board passers here in the Philippines... those who received their eligibility, they waited not less than 3 mons. first, they received a letter and then, their eligibility... that's why i'm wondering why i haven't received anything yet.. i passed my requirements earlier than them...

    If you just applied this past July, the average wait time is about four months to get approval. And do you actually have a local license? If not, then CA is not going to do anything with your application for licensure.

    They usually will not notify you of missing documents, only if you failed to submit the local license.

    Not sure if you have done any reading here as to why you should not be using CA if you do not have a SSN# already. Much has been written on this very topic, you would be wise to do a search here about it.

    im pretty much sure that i've submitted all the needed requirements/documents to them aside for the copy of my license w/c i already forgot if i included it when i passed it. but if not, according to you, they'll give me a notice right?.. maybe i'll just wait for it since it's only 2mons after i passed it... tnx anyway
