    ok so it means it will be easier for me to find an employer if a have a VSC? if it is not too much to ask.. i need some advice to my situation here. Im recently residing here in L.A with my husband and daughter. my husband just holds a student visa which makes my status dependent to him (both no ssn). my daughter is born here(lucky her bcoz instant ssn).. I tried to apply before in CA but just return my app bcoz of no ssn so i tried NV instead luckily i got att letter and scheduled to take the exam this oct. but i just learned that my application to them got expired already since i applied it last yr and it is just good for a year. so now, if hopefully,i pass my exam this oct,what would be the next best thing to do? What are my options? Can i renew my app w/o ssn? Will VSC will help me in the future? Or apply to new york to have an actual license endorse to CA? oh wait Ca will not process endorsement app w/o ssn ryt? PLZ HELP ME>>> i really intend and wish to work here in CA soon. Also is't true that if you fail to submit ssn in given time they will destroy it and then you have to take the exam again? I have a friend in the Philippines with the same situation and she is afraid that she had to take another exam again. Also, even if my app is already expired will the NV board still informed me my exam results? or i need to renew my app first? Thank you so much. God Bless

    Having a VSC will not necessarily increase your chance of finding an employer wishing to sponsor you for a work visa. It won't change the fact that the employer needs to go through all the process of the immigration and sponsoring a foreign nurse, which these days are kind of rare. It is one of the requirements, though. So it'll save you time in the future.

    Regarding the NV licensure application. I'm just confused on why they issued you an ATT and yet your application is already expired. I don't know for sure how it goes, but I would contact your BON and ask them for sure what to do.

    And regarding the reapplication without a SSN. I think you can still reapply even without your SSN, but some states will not issue an actual license if you don't have that SSN. And no, they won't "destroy" your NCLEX file. California used to do it I guess, but it won't matter now coz they won't accept application anyway without the SSN.

    oic tnk u for your reply. about the application. I was able to schedule my exam before my application expired. When i scheduled to pearson vue they quickly send me an att letter but my application to NV is only for one year.

    be sure to check with your BON. It maybe possible that since you already have your ATT, they may give you some sort of extension. So if you haven't talked to someone from the BON just to check your status, then do so.

    I always recommend the pen and paper application to them, not the on-line form, for this very same reason. Once it is sent, it is sent and cannot be corrected.

    Just call them.

    You will not get a cgfns ID number until you have applied and fees paid

    hi silverdragon! thanks for the reply.. yes i know i can get a cgfns number after i apply and pay.. because there's another blank for the order number.. i wonder what to put there?

    If it is asking for ID number and you don't have it then leave blank, can always put a covering note explaining

    Does anyone know how long it usually takes for a certificate to be issued once all documents are received? I have a potential job offer with a start date of Feb. 20th and my documents were received at the end of Dec. I was told that I could expedite for an extra $500, but they wouldn't give me anymore information about it unless I told them I wanted expedited services for sure. So what I'm trying to get at is, do you think I will have my certificate issued in time or should I go ahead and pay to get the expedited services? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. TIA!

    i just hope anyone would answer my question....I passed the NCLEX and now it will be expiring few months from now... I just need my SSS number to finally complete the process.. but the problem is i still don't have 1 (was waiting for my petition from my mom-im on the final process now the interview but i don't know when will it be, been waiting like forever, was misinformed by my sister that it will be soon and all-(the lawyer told her that its just few months after completing the requirements we will be scheduled for the interview)....that's why i never process the VSC. now i'm so scared that my NCLEX will expired... i don't know what can i do to at least extend my NCLEX.. i'm not really up to going to US now i just don't want my Nclex to expire.....
    I know I'm so stupid to wait for the interview... Now, I'm trying to figure out if i can do something bout this...
    Thanks...

    Suggest you either contact the state and see what is required to keep your NCLEX results active or look at applying to another state, meeting their requirements and arranging for your NCLEX results to be forwarded to new state
