New Mexico SSN requirements

  1. 0 Hello there,

    I am a nurse from the Philippines, I recently decided to give NCLEX a try and I am planning to apply for it in the state of New Mexico. This is my first time to apply for NCLEX as well as applying in the said state. I have already read and reviewed New Mexico Board of Nursing's application guidelines but I didn't quite find what I was looking for.

    My question is, Does New Mexico Board of Nursing require international nurses to have a Social Security Number (SSN) before the initial application?

    Hi. No it does not. I have my ATT number through NM and plan to sit NCLEX in late August in Hawaii due to limited test in Sydney Aust. I read a couple of post stating you need a SSN to be issued a license after NCLEX. There is NOTHING on th NM website stating this. Regards SM

    Best to ask BON this question and get it directly from the horse's mouth

    BON is the Board of Nursing and they are the ones that make the final decision
