    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.
    hello michaelRN14!!!

    1. sad to say but unfortunately they will not issue any license not unless you would be able to
    submit a social security number... it has always been like that from time immemorial, you must be
    asking "why would they even bother to find you eligible to take nclex when they wont even issue
    you the license?"... that's probably the reason why they dont accept applicants without a ssn now a days.

    2. regarding your concern on ur results, i suggest you contact BRN but you can also try the pearsonvue trick
    theres a thread that teaches you how to do it but just to give you a heads up heres what you gotta do..

    2.1) log on to you pearsonvue acct.www.pearsonvue.com/nclex
    2.2) upper left corner theres a tab that says "register" below "current activity"click it
    2.3) select nclex-rn
    2.4) you will be directed to a page that says REGISTER:SELECT A COUNTRY then you would have to select
    the country where you "took" nclex-rn in my case its Philippines click on next
    2.5) then a page would appear with a gray background that contains several questions
    those that appear with a red * sign are required fields
    2.6) its gonna ask yoU "HAVE YOU EVER TAKEN NCLEC EXAM BEFORE" answer YES
    next question *SELECT THE NURSING PROGRAM FROM WHICH YOU GRADUATED. PLEASE FILL IN ANY COMBINATION OF THE
    FOLLOWING FIELDS COUNTRY: PHILIPPINES THEN HIT search button to get the program code
    make sure "philippines" option is toggled says program name: philippines program code 99-425 locationhl
    2.7) answer * SELECT the BOARD OF NURSING FROM WHICH YOU ARE SEEKING LICENSURE: answer where the board
    where you sought in my case its CALIFORNIA BOARD OF REGISTRED NURSING
    2.8) click on next

    it is said that when you have passed the examination pearsonvue will not direct you to the credit card page and a
    prompt will appear
    but if you have failed then it will automatically direct you to the payment option page
    for further explination i suggest you make a reseach on it as well, i have tried it and it is 100 percent true
    in my opinion


    wish you all the luck hope to hear from you soon

    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.

    hello markosmea

    thank you for the compliment its also nice to be of help to others, why make
    the world difficult when you can share something right

    1.) that question got me wondering as well, heres how i did it...
    i emailed nysed and they told me to just leave it blank however
    i wanted to be sure so i answered no then wrote a note *passed nclex in state of california,
    ssn not availble... then wrote my file number hahaha you can try to email them as well i dont have it with me now
    you can just google it but it wont hurt to just write a note as well

    2.) i havent gotten my license yet... and just to set up ur expectations
    i saw my friend's NY LICENSE and its just paper and she had
    to laminate it... hahahhaaha.. my prc license isss wayyy better

    hi markosmea! i just want to ask if Oregon does not require SSN too? im really confused because i've checked their site and they said they need SSN to issue my license, but when i called the agency who assist nclex applicants, they said Oregon does not require SSN, just IELTS. thank u...
    hello jenxx

    i suggest you believe what the site informs you
    1.) because they are the source of information,
    2.) some agencies in my opinion are just plainly after the profit...

    @jenxx

    congratulations on passing the NLE in my own personal opinion its 10x harder than nclex, so am sure ud be able to pass it!!

    well for one NY doesnt need ssn...
    hmmm texas doesnt need one either, am not sure if virginia requires ssn..
    but please do "more" research as well you can try emailing them to verify all information
    GOODLUCK... i suggest u choose texas my friend got her license in 3 months

    Hi jenx, i believe Oregon has stricter regulations for licensure. I have once read that they needed an SSN for you to acquire your RN license. I suggest you try NY and Texas. Best of luck
