    As someone who trained outside the US you have to go through CVS with NY and the process can take up to 6-8 months before eligibility to sit NCLEX Suggest you read the NY state BON and CGFNS websites

    NYBON does not require licensure in your home country. BUT your problem would be your non-immigrant status as you need to provide your Social Security Number in your application/s. And you wont be able to have one unless you're lawfully allowed to work in the US by having either a working permit, a green card or US citizen status. The way for you to be able to take NCLEX is to take it in the Philippines. You can't apply to take it in New York. Also, you must also take the CGFNS exam to obtain a Visa-Screen certificate used in US Visa application.

    Some states and I know NY used to be one of them would accept application without a US SSN but wouldn't necessarily issue a license without it. Also for visa screen certificate you need a pass in either CGFNS exam or NCLEX not just CGFNS exam

    Just checked the NY application forum and it doesn't state that US SSN is a must but to leave blank if you do not have one

    I think initially, they allow you to leave the SSN number blank then you have follow up qs on why the area is left blank. You can choose the answer- "choose not to provide SSN" or "Dont have SSN" and if you choose the latter, you have to explain why you don't have SSN. Yes, only either of the two can happen- the BON will let you sit the exam but not issue a license even if you pass OR the BON will not allow you to take NCLEX at all.
