    thanks for the very helpful response. one more question, if i get a non-working social security number, will i be able to claim my nursing license? and if yes, will it be easier to have reciprocity/endorsement to new york? or i still have to undergo the same thing with or without the actual license. thanks and regards
    1.silverdragon is right as long as it says SSN that should do it.. however you can only get one if you're in the states
    i have contacted the US embassy and clarified it since i have read that a specific department can issue ssn here in the Philippines
    provided that a"STATE/FEDERAL LAW REQUIRES IT" however the woman said that it only applies for Veterans...
    2. Well, i don't think it would make a huge difference NY requires each one to undergo CGFNS-CVS first before anything else i feel like it might take a little longer since CGFNS would have to request for two licensing bodies (PRC and CALIFORNIA BRN) for verification...

    i see. in short, non working SSN is also valid to get the license right? well i believe international students can also get a working or a non working SSN. right?

    SSN is the same regardless whether it states can work or not. If you get one that states not authorized to work and then you can work you have to go to the SSN office and get it changed however the number will be the same

    Students can apply once they have permission to work. It isn't always approved from the start

    I would just like to ask one thing. I am a registered nurse here in the Phils.. I applied for my NCLEX last 2009 and took the exam just this June 2011. I stopped at the 75th question and was so anxious to wait for the results. However, almost 4 month have passed and still I didn't receive any results. I was just wondering because during 2009, CA did not require any SSN and I passed my application during that time. But I took the exam just this 2011 when CA BON implemented the SSN requirement. Could I still have my license in case I pass? Also, I haven't received my results til now. Huhu. I just wanna know if I passed or failed. It's not a joke spending a lot of money for a single test. Please, enlighten me on this.

    hi MichaelRN14!

    we are in the same situation actually, only difference is my BON is Arkansas, I already received my letter of passing and stated there that I need to provide them with US SSN before they could issue me a license.

    Try the PVT trick and check whether you pass or fail, it is accurate IMO. 4 months seems pretty long..

    Good luck!

    You need to contact the BRN they will not issue a license without a SSN but should send you a letter

    Hi nursejas, feels good to meet someone very thoughtful here in the cyberworld of nurses. Anyways, I have reviewed this from Form 1 and it's quite confusing:

    Item no. 18
    Do you now hold, or have you ever held, a license or certificate to practice any profession* in any jurisdiction?
    �� Yes �� No
    If yes, list each license/certificate, state or jurisdiction and provide appropriate information in the columns below.
    A Form 3 must be submitted for each professional license/certificate listed unless it is a license/certificate issued by the New York State Education Department. See theApplicant Instructions on Form 3 for specific information about completing and submitting the form.



    I believe this instruction means that we only intend to send form 3 if we hold a license? IS that correct? or have i interpreted this wrongfully?

    I am an NCLEX-passer in the state of Florida and likewise do not possess a US Social Security Number, I am hoping to get all this done to obtain a license in New York since they do not require a SSN.

    And by the way, did you receive your NY RN plastic license already? Thanks.
