    VSC can wait until you find a employer but up to you. VSC is valid for 5 years. There is nothing stopping you from looking for a employer be it H1b (but expect experience to be required due to the nature of H1b being a specialist visa) or immigrant visa just be aware at the moment it may be hard.

    Hi all!

    I recently passed my NCLEX - RN (California), and it was clearly stated they will destroy your file three years after, if you don't supply them SSN. Can somebody please give me an advice on what to do with my NCLEX results? You still need to have SSN even if you already have a visascreen, is that right? thanks guys.
    If I were you, I will simply endorse my nclex result now, AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, to Vermont BON in order to acquire an RN license but first you have to apply for CES at CGFNS, then, apply an RN license at Vermont using the NCLEX endorsement form from vermont website. Do not wait for three years before doing this. And after 4 to 6 months, you will have your RN license.

    This is something you need to discuss with the BON however as far as I am aware they do not destroy your file

    The most important thing that will happen if you endorse it to Vermont is that you will have a permanent US RN license. Renewal of license form does not require an SSN for international nurses who do not hold an SSN. You just need to provide them a copy of your passport. And Silverdragon is right, this is something that you need to discuss with the BON. And your name will be included in the NCBSN database. Your file will be there even it's inactive, active status or whatsoever. And better for you coz you can endorse your license anywhere in the US as long as you submit all requirements of that particular state you want to work at. You will NO LONGER WORRY that your NCLEX result will be destroyed... wow!

    Just a noted, you are not "endorsing" anything to Vermont. To endorse, you need a license. You don't have one, you just have an exam result. What you need to do is apply for licensure by examination to VT, then transfer your examination result to them from CA. THEN you'll get a license which can be endorsed to other states.

    Please check website of VT. There is a form that you will use to endorse your nclex results which is NCLEX ENDORSEMENT FORM for international nurses who pass the NCLEX but do not have license yet. DO NOT USE OTHER FORMS OR ELSE, THEY WILL RETURN IT TO YOU!

    hello rn_garcha... i have also sat and passed the NCLEX and already have my VSC... i have a pending approved sponsorship in the US with priority dated june 2008 at the NVC... the licensure endorsement to vermont is an option... and YES, the BON of California sends your details eventhough you have yet to get your license... just like with acquiring your VSC (which states there that you need confirmation of your LICENSE), they honor the NCLEX passing result only...

    should you not wish to get licensed somewhere else, you only need to write the BON of California at least three months prior to the 3-year expiration set on your NCLEX-RN pass letter... i said at least three months as a friend already tried to request for extension for her pass letter which will expire this december 2010... she was told to write them again three months prior to december... she was asked to "chill" so to speak

    the BON of california do extend validity of pass letter... they are aware of the retrogression... but they only extend it for a year... so you would have to write them each year, which really sucks... but hey, at least they are considerate...

    i suggest you get your VSC as it is their requirement that your NCLEX/CGFNS AND any accredited english proficiency test (IELTS, TOEFL etc) be within TWO YEARS of each other... and the VSC is required whether you wish to apply as an immigrant or would go there on a tourist visa and have it converted into working visa... it has a 5-year validity... and may be extended to 10 years...

    i have applied in canada... since they have changed their migration laws, it is so much easier to MIGRATE there... getting licensed there however is another story...

    i hope this helps and goodluck to you!

    visa screen certificate is federal and to meet requirements you need to have passed NCLEX or CGFNS exam. NCLEX is state specific
