    if they send you a mail with your return payment, it means they need your SSN....if not then wait for that eligibility first...if they did accept w/o SSN.

    sure you may take the nclex in other states of the US that does not require SSN...but you may only apply for reciprocity to CA if you already have SSN.
    otherwise you cannot practice.

    Yes its true, there's a lot of TNT's in CA who took the nclex hoping to get a job right away, but what they don't know is NOW, no green card no nursing job, because the employer if caught will pay $2,500+ for every alien caught working w/o papers, and will serve jail time too.

    yes its true you may use a federal employer number, but make sure it is really the employer that you have & not someone elses or your license may be revoked for fraud.

    yes, if you pass your nclex now you have 3 yrs to give CA BON your SSN, since you are on petition you may get your SSN once you get to the US.
    However, please do check really the time frame of your petition, you may check it at the website of USCIS, to know exactly when you may be approved to migrate to the US.

    i DO NOT AGREE, you may have an SSN even if you are not a citizen.
    the K-1 visa granted your wife first a conditional green card, that is why she has SSN, after 2 years she has to remove that condition from her green card so she could stay in the US.
    a GREEN CARD does not mean that you are a US citizen, it simply means you may stay or work in the US.

    This has been discussed several times, I don't think they will give extention but main way to find out is ask the BRN. You need to have a valid work/immigrant visa to be able to apply for a SSN
