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... Read More
- 1Apr 21, '10 by Silverdragon102 AdminYou do not need SSN for vsc but getting a H1b may be an issue due to the high number of RN's looking for work especially in CA. F1 will not get you a SSN unless you get permission to work (as far as I am aware) and even if you are on F1 there is no guarantee the first year you can work in a hospital as F1 usually has restrictions in the first year plus you may find it cheaper to go to school on H4 than F1

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.

Do not wait for three years before doing this. And after 4 to 6 months, you will have your RN license.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.

- 1Apr 23, '10 by rocket bomberThe 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!
