I graduated in one of the Nursing Schools here in the Philippines (outside US), and i took NCLEX Licensure Exam a few months after i passed my RN License here in the Philippines...I passed the NCLEX Examination,and received a notice from california...my problem is that, i wasnt able to read in the document which they sent to me that i should have verified or something like that, my NCLEX License...when i was informed about this process, i visited their website and i read that upon receiving the document they sent me, i should verify my license within 2 years or else, my license will be forfeited...
more 2 years have passed now, can i still verify my license using the endorsement process in other US states? and if possible, are there any US state that does not require SSN for application?i cant have an SSN since im from outside, not currently residing from US and am not working in the US.
Hello kabayan. You have to do the whole immigration thing to be processed for SSN. You have to apply for work visa at US Embassy in Manila. When you get your work visa, you have to apply for SSN (Social Security Number) at your nearest Social Security office. They look at your immigration status, US immigration stamp on your passport, passport, birth certificate, and many more. Social Security is similar to SSS in the Philippines, after you retire at the age of 65 yrs old you get monthly pension from gov't. You have to be on a H1B visa (working visa), immigrant, or US citizen status inorder to get a Social Security Number valid to work in the US. Then, you apply for a state ID which also checks your immigration status again, passport, and SSN. When you have all these, then you are ready to go. All employers, when you apply for a job, gives you an application to fill-up and make copies of your ID, green card or visa, and SSN to make sure you are valid to work not illegal immigrant. Then you have to undergo a background check & medical check-up.
