    Really you should be looking at the state you want to live and work in. We have seen many post still having to take English exams when endorsing to a state that requires it

    For CGFNS, you need CVS, and then you can apply to NYSED or BON of NY.

    Guys, the ultimate goal is finding and working as a nurse.

    So looking for a state without going thru all the documentation or requirement process is just step 1 of 2.

    Here's number 2: in any case, if you're allowed to take possession of the nursing license, one will ALWAYS need either that (a). working approved SS# or (b). a working visa of some sort to work legally in a hospital or any legitimate US employer, whether it's a nursing home, any hospital job or a McDonald's.

    At the same time, the license in your hands must be valid to work in that state and if you need to endorse it over to another state that does require putting a valid SS# on the endorsement application, if it's not on the application form, it will be not only rejected, but don't expect to get a refund for the denial, as most application forms clearly state to some extent..."NOT REFUNDABLE", some applications have them in BOLD letters, some have them combined with RED letterings.

    As once that state's BON touches and opens the application, they will assume that you still at some point in time will be able to provide the missing valid SS# and usually give you 1-2-3 or so many years to "complete" your application. The clock starts ticking from that date.

    Don't count on getting hospital sponsorships unless you have at least a couple of years of paid working hospital experience and helps more if your paid experience is in a speciality field. There will be some exceptions to this general rule, but don't count on that either.

    Sponsorships are very costly to hospitals as they must pay for the entire cost and no need to spend more money for them when they can draw from a large pool of other qualified applicants (usually local US or residents) and can start the next day or within 1-2 weeks. Sponsorships today are like finding Easter eggs at Xmas time.

    This sounds like a great response. I'll be honest and say that questions about how to get a nursing license without having to do "X" (have a SSN, pass an English test, etc) makes suspect about a posters intentions. Spending time looking for states with loopholes rather than just do what is asked/required of a person seems like a sad way to spend your time in a quest to obtain a license.
