Hello!

  1. hi,everyone.
    my name is " marinsf ". it's my first time here.

    i am a registered nurse working in japan.
    i have just got att and i am taking nclex-rn exam within a year.

    i have a question about ssn( social security number ).
    even if i pass nclex exam, my license won't be validated until i get ssn in ca.
    i heard about the limit within 1 year, or 3 years but i am not sure what is correct information.

    until when should i get ssn in ca after i pass nclex-rn exam?

    does anyone know the latest information about the question above?

    thank you.

    there is no latest information, you will not get a license until you give the ca brn a valid social security number. and you do not ge tthat until you are in the us.

    you will not be able to get a ssn# until you have gone thru the immigration process and have arrived in the us. california gives you three years to give them the ssn#, otherwise you will need to reapply to them. you will not need to take the nclex exam again.

    Hi, Suzanne4

    Thank you for your quick reply.
    I am relieved to hear that CA gives me 3 years until I get a SSN#.
    OK. I wil make a plan to go to USA studying for NCLEX-RN exam.

    I highly suggest thay you do the review while you are overseas, not to come to the US to prepare for the exam. I can help you if you want.

    Hi, Suzanne4

    As your suggestion,
    I will prepare for the exam and improve english skills while I work as a rn in Japan. And then, I will go to the US after I pass the exam.

    Thanks, again.
