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..
