How to get an initail New Jersey license

  1. Hi. Can anyone please help me?
    I have passed the NCLEX in nov 2006. I received my SSN a couples of days upon arrival. I am now here in Maryland. I want to get my license in New Jersey. I called the NJ BON and they told me to fill up a new application (licensure by examination) just to update like my address because I have had my exam in 2006. My questions are:
    1. Is this really the process? From what I've gathered, I only have to give my SSN to NJ BON to process my license
    2. Do I need to submit again all the documents specified in the application form?

    Is anybody on the same situation?

    Hi. May I know if u got your New Jersey License? I am on similar situation as you before, passed my nclex exams in 2007 but was not issued a license because I had no SS number. I was told to send a new application all together. Did you get ur license? How long did it take? Did you have to submit a credential evaluation report? I hope you can help me.
