    Hi Diel08! I am planning to take my NCLEX also this year and have choosen Hawaii to apply for the exam but my problem is that I dont have Social Security Number and I think BON State of Hawaii requires it. Is it possible that I can still be accepted for the exam even though I dont have it?

    If its a requirement and you don't have it, you will not be able to sit for the boards for that state

    I recently took and passed the Nclex! ๐Ÿ˜ The only review materials that I used are:

    1. Saunders Q&A Review for NCLEX-RN 6th Edition (Green Color) & Saunders Comprehensive Review 5th Edition (Yellow) . ( I bought these at C&E Publishing, Philippines)

    2. Lippincott Manual of Nursing Practice Ninth Edition

    3. Please read the Detailed and Summarized Nclex 2016 testplan, all the topics you need to cover are all in there..

    Additionally, I practiced 100-200 questions everyday from the Saunders Q&A, it has over 6,000 nurse practice questions.

    Do not forget , 3p's Practice, Persistence and Prayer. Give yourself a timeout and a dayoff (weekends, whichever you prefer.) Have faith and you will surely Pass! ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜›

    Hi there everyone i have question cause me and my gf plan to take the nclex at Hawaii..I'm a US citizen in Hawaii and we planned to take it there..but i've read about the BON of Hawaii is requiring a SSN..since im already a US citizen i already have my SSN but my gf doesn't have one and i plan to bring her to Hawaii after taking the exam..is there any suggestions/recommendations as to what is needed..like does she need to apply for a working visa in order to get one or idk...hoping for any feedback

    Why doesn't she have a SSN? If she's your fiance you can sponsor her and she can apply for a fiance visa then she can have a SSN otherwise she needs to be sponsored by an entity in HI for her to get a working visa.

    Hi sakygen! Thanks and how long does she have to wait before applying for a SSN or can she apply once shes there?

    I believe you have to be physically present when you apply for a SSN at thr social security office. Best of luck to both of you.
