*sigh* im having same problem, i passed nclex last may 24 2012 under nevada. i received a letter from them that within a year, since the start of my application to take the nlex, if i wasnt able to provide a ssn my result will expire and no license will b issued. im feeling so depressed and hopeless, even social security admin indicates on their reply to my email they don provide ssn for purpose of obtaining a license or such. i dont know what to do anymore, smetimes i feel like giving up on this
Wait, so you're allowed to take and pass the exam, but until you provide the NV BON with a SSN, the license will not be issued? It seems like more states that don't require a SSN to initially apply and take the exam, one must still provide the SSN, I know NM is like that now.
I think this is rumor, but one friend who is trying in NY, says they may also require a SSN to obtain the license. This means you can still apply and pass NCLEX, but without a SSN to follow within a year or so, you'll not able to get the license, meaning no chance to work or look around.
