New Mexico doesn't require SSN. I can confirm that as I just got a license issued there as a foreign nurse.
Here's the question I have..let's ASSUME, I pass the NCLEX without a SSN, that's great! BUT how does one get a nursing job (NOT as a traveler), as it's been mentioned here "Every employer in every state does require one - you cannot get a job without one."
I know that's true as looking at any employment application, it clearly states something to the effect: "Are you legally able to work in the United States?" Sometimes, it's just a box to check "YES" or "NO". One can't check check "YES", if they don't have a SSN or green card holder, etc.
If you say "Yes", you can work, one must provide the employer with a valid SSN card number or their PR information. What are your plans to implement working in the States? I'm guessing you're already working on your PR status or ??
Thank you in advance and congrats on getting your RN license
that's one job well done!
