    Welcome mahtab. Glad to see you here. I am not too familiar with taking NCLEX when coming from another country but I see GitanoRN covered that. Hope to see you around the site.

    Some states require a SSN while others do not. The only state I am aware of that DOES NOT require a SSN to take the NCLEX is Minnesota, although there are other states as well. However, Minnesota is one of the fastest to process licenses and the cheapest in their fees.

    Best to know which state do you want to work in and go from there. The reason is that if you want to really settle in X state, but X state has the SS# requirement, you can get your license in Z state, but may have issues going back (endorse) your license into X state, as you'll need to meet the same requirements as having applied into X state to begin with.

    There might be another way to circumvent this, just not known exactly how or if possible, as it seems all state's BON's are loooking harder into this process.

    If the state requires SSN then there is no way to get round it.
