Endorsement Pass Application to Texas State Board from CA NCLEX-RN Passer

  1. 0
    Good Day! Thank you for helping me get started into your ALLNURSES.COM. What a blessing to have a competent and highly credible venue for nurses' crucial queries worldwide.

    May I know:
    a) if a foreign educated nurse (e.g., from the Philippines) who passed NCLEX-RN through the State Board of CA can become eligible for Endorsement Pass to Texas State Board, considering that CA Nursing Board did not actually issue a CA license to the nurse due to non-presentation of a US SSN within the prescribed period?.
    b) is the Paper Application Process prescribed by Texas State Board to international nurses educated outside America and Non-holder of a US SSN applicable to this case?

    Thank you very much for your assistance!

    Hi there, congrats on passing the NCLEX! I think based on some other reads here, I think if you don't have a SSN to get the CA license issued, then in essence, you don't have a CA license to endorse at all. I would write to the CA BON today if you haven't already and explain the situation exactly how you did here. I would send them an e-mail versus over the phone if you can actually get a hold of someone in person.

    It's best to get your answer directly from a CA BON employee.

    Will you let us know of your results and hope it's all in your favor. Good luck!

    Don't forget no US SSN means CA will not issue a license therefore you can not endorse as a license is required to endorse

    Very good!

    But just to make sure we're all on the same page. There are others here who have been granted a license from NM and like you here, a CA license. However, do you have or will be able to actually put the license ID card in your purse or wallet? Or can you put the license in a picture frame to hang?

    The reason I ask is that one can have a valid license, but they don't have one in real possession until the SSN is provided, which is needed to start applying for a job then must show them yo have it. I know many states the hiring place can verify via on-line, but I think they also want to take a copy of it for their records.

    "Granted" the license can be subject to giving them a SSN and then after that, to be in real possession of that license.

    That will be a great plus for those in the same position as you, if TX doesn't need a SSN. I know someone here has a VT license, but come her renewal time, it will not be done without showing the BON that SSN.

    I have one in real possession..Its about half the size of a short bond paper declaring that I am entitled to be styled and known as RN..it can actually be placed in a frame and can be hung. The BON had stopped distributing wallet-size licenses according to them. No harm done if others will give it a try!
