    So I won't be able to renew the license unless I get a SSN? Is there any way around this rule?

    It is clear from the rules and regulations of Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulations, that upon renewal of your nursing license, you must provide your Social Security Number. So strictly speaking you must furnish them your SS#. Now, if you are still in the Philippines or in any country outside US, and you still have no SS# on the basis that you are one of those applicants whose application for immigrant visa under employment base category, was on hold due to the retrogression, you must have to write the Illinois BoN, indicating the said fact. They will still renew your license on the basis of your justifications why you can't furnish them one.

    What if you are taking NCLEX in IL, without SS.. are you going to be penalized for it? professor from CCC said i should just take the exam, since im getting married this may with my longterm gf (i got expired visa).. Can i Still take exam without getting in trouble?

    I know you got one year to provide SS# once you renew of license.

    - Suzanne/Silverdragon i need your help on this one. i have not taken my exam yet bcoz i dont want to risk anything. I was under H4 visa until my dad dropped the bomb on me that my visa expired when i was in nursing school (so i just finished it coz of all the wasted years i spent on it)

    I doubt you will be penalised for not having a SSN the issue is sorting your status out and will probably need to speak to a immigration lawyer experienced in sorting out your status

    Hi, I recently passed my nclex rn exam in NJ. Even though i have passed, this did not result in a license as my visa status does not allow me to work. I have social security number but its not work authorized. Does anyone know if board of nursing of NJ will issue a letter saying that i passed nclex rn . I am not sure where to get proof that i passed NCLEX-RN. I asked pearson vue and they are telling me that the board of nursing i am applying to shoudl be informing regardign this but the NJ BON is telling me that they can't do anything and they simply don't issue licenses to people who are not work authorized.
    Any input would be appreciated.
    thank you

    What proof have you had that you passed NCLEX? The state should issue a letter stating you meet requirements and that they will not issue a license until you provide proof of work/immigrant visa

    You need to contact the BON as soon as you get your SSN and they will issue you a license, I doubt, even with permission to work, you can work without a license. Usually doesn't take long once SSN is given to the BON

    Hi Silverdragon102, how can I secure SSN, If I am Canadian. Do I need to go to California to find a job first or do they allow me to get SSN first as soon as I get to California then find a job? Please let me know, I appreciate it.
