    I read from other nursing forums...

    "The board will be able to verify your test results even if your files was destroyed by the CA Board."
    They even discussed that the nclex results will not be destroyed and you dont need to take nclex anymore when you passed already.. Only the files you have sent to CABON that will be abandoned and destroyed.

    How reliable is this??
    very reliable.

    The NCLEX passing is not with CABON exclusively so even if your licensure documents are destroyed, your NCLEX passing is still active. If your license expires or documents are destroyed then you can have it "re-activated" so to speak once you have SSN. However if your goal in the USA is a different state then you should go ahead and endorse your NCLEX passing to that other state to keep from having to go through extra steps and expenses later.

    to those who used ITIN before and were issued a CA license:
    " How did you submit your SSN to replace the ITIN you submitted before?"
    I just want to submit my SSN safely because of Identity theft fears I have

    You must have SSN# to apply.

    The only way to get that is become a citizen.
    My wife is from 'Pinas. She received her Social Security number about two weeks after she arrived here in the U.S. on a K-1 Fiancée visa.

    what is the best thing to do? let cabon destroy the file or have endorsement to other state? we are not planning to work to other state. just waiting for visa which takes too long

    "Once an applicant passes the examination, a license is automatically issued".

    I already passed the exam in 2008, does this mean I will be given a license? or is my status still the same?
    Hi archie

    " My question is once an applicant passes the exam, then license is being issued ,do they also allocate SSN automatically attached to the licence?

    Thx
