    VSC is valid for 5 years and if you have to renew it your IELTS or English exam has to be redone as it needs to be current and valid

    My wife has a working Visa and I am under H1-B Dependent Visa. I already took the California Nclex but I failed. When I reapplied, my application was denied because I do not have any SSN.

    Is there an alternative for SSN? In my case I am under H1-B / H4 Visa? I have an iTIN but from what I read, this is not accepted by CABON

    It's sad to know that I can't get in coz i don't have SSN, even though i passed my NCLEX already. *sigh*

    I dunno what to do about it. It's so depressing.

    I don't think there is any alternative, only other option is apply to another state.

    Thanks for the reply. I already called them and they told me that there are no alternatives. You must have SSN# to apply.

    The only way to get that is become a citizen.

    This is so depressing

    Incorrect, you can get a SSN if you have a valid legal work permit or immigrant visa

    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??
