SSN a requirement for nclex in california?

  1. 0 Hi, I'm planning to take the nclex in california. I am still on the process of applying. I just read in the application form that I need a social security number. I only have a tourist visa and I'm planning to take the exam in California. By any chance, can I take the exam without SSN?BTW, I am a filipino and I am a RN in the Philippines.

    Re think your plans. CA will not accept application without a US SSN and you can not get that until in the US with a valid work/immigrant visa

    Forget it. That's not a wise move. You have no chance of doing that here.

    . Kabayan you can take nclex exam either in Manila,any asian countries or here in Cali.,since your here under tourist visa..,but you cant apply for licensure in Cali.because of the required SSN.

    You can sit NCLEX anywhere in the world where it is available however the issue we are telling you is you can not apply to the CA board of nursing without a US SSN.

    What board of nursing have you applied to for licensure?

    my advice for you is to check other states that does not require SSN to process your nclex...dont choose cali if you dont have SSN..

    The SSN requirement eliminates the chance of non-immigrants or non US citizens from ever taking the licensure for CA. So PH nurses must be aware if you come here as tourists with that plan in mind. And unlike the pre-retrogression era, you can't do adjustment of status anymore. That's now the way it is. Best to go home and do something else.

    If your a tourist here,and your custom paper (that's the form I 9..something thats attached in your passport) is not yet expired try going to DMV and get an ID or go to the Social Security Office, they might issue you SSN with restrictions. If you can get one your lucky you can take the exam but they will not issue the license so its not worth it..2nd option try applying to some other state that doesn't require SSN like Vermont. 3rd go back to the Philippines and ask an agency or review center like Kaplan how can you apply for Ca NCLEX, because they can assist you with your application and I think they can get SSN for you, I don't know how they do it but just try and course it has payment.
