    When filing you 1040 form, you take the Federal employer id number on your w2 to file your taxes, it has no relation to the board of nursing and no value.

    I am quite confused with this, i thought that you cannot apply for CA NCLEX RN without ssn? how come cliffordortiz was able to take the exam when she seems to not have ssn? i am on family visa petition and looking to a one to two year time frame with the way the process is going before i can enter US so if I can pass the nclex now i can just provide the BRN with my ssn when i get to the states since a three year time is given to provide ssn..

    can i APPLY TO TAKE CA NCLEX without ssn?
    because as much as possible i dont want to take initial licensing in other states anymore when i dont intend to work somewhere else other than california coz i think i will be wasting money..

    Hi Silverdragon

    I have a qusetion coz im worried sick really
    I took the NCLEX RN for CA BON last 7/6/11 and until now its been 20 days and still havent got any mail
    I tried the PVT and got the good pop up and in a way my anxiety is lessened but im still having sleepless nights !

    My question is , if an applicant pass the test then a licence is issued right? does it mean that SSN is also attached to the licence before my name will appear on the CA BON website?

    I'm sorry for asking coz im just having anxiety attack and sleepless nights

    I am wondering...did you take the CA licensure exam without filling the SSN part?? or you leave it blank in filling the SSN in FORM?? what date did you process your papers for California Application by Licensure or NCLEX?????

    CA will not issue a license without a SSN so if you haven't given them your SSN then all you will get is a letter stating you have met requirements.
    1. i am quite worried, so i can take the Ca NCLEX even without SSN?? Yes or No
    2. but they cannot issued the licensed without giving them SSN??? Yes or No

    Check the BRN website but as far as I am aware no SSN means no acceptance of application

    Coz i applied for my ATT before the deadline which is april 2010.
    then after that they wont accept any application without ssn.

    This effectively stops all PH RNs who aren't legal permanent residents from ever applying to CA for NCLEX. Eliminates a lot of paperwork.

    If you passed the exam, you will be given a license but only if you give them an SSN. If however, you got your license already, you cannot renew or extend it without giving them your SSN within a period of 3 years..

    I'm afraid you are right, its a waste of money & time to apply at CA-BON, you might want to try other states in the US.
    There's overflow of nurses here in CA, esp in the Bay area, were RNs work as CNA already just to have a job.
    So this is just one way for them to give priority to the ones who are legally allowed to stay in the US.

    Nurses, why don't you try Illinois? I heard from my former instructor that once you pass the NCLEX, they'll be giving you your very own social security number. He passed the NCLEX in January 2011. Another friend also tried that about 4 years ago so even if she is still here in Manila, she was able to renew her US license because of her SSN provided by Illinois. Unfortunately, in my case, I applied in California and even if I had passed the NCLEX, I can't get my license number because of that missing requirement!
