    Nothing to look at, You can not get a US SSN until in the US with a valid work visa or immigrant visa. As I said before I suggest you look at another state, get sorted, pass NCLEX then find employer, meet TN requirements and get TN issued apply for SSN once in the US with TN visa and then if license required like for CA then apply to state including SSN on application. There are several states that will now NOT issue a license without a SSN or immigrant/work visa but CA have stated they will not process applications from April without a SSN which means many International nurses looking at other states for initial application

    im from texas, and i dont have a philippine license. after i graduated, i went back to texas but i didnt take that route for getting texas license 'coz i knew i had to get cgns and texas board of nursing requires 2 years experience when you're a foreign graduate. instead, i applied for california license (the dont require local license), and i was approved and took nclex and got my california RN license. and then, i endorsed my license to texas and already have my texas license..
    -I currently hold a license as a Nurse here in the Philippines and on my way to Texas, I read the same requirements from Texas BON site CES from CGFNS and the 2 years experience. How is it possible that you were able to transfer your license from California to Texas? I can't find a law that states a reciprocity between registered nurses of california and texas. and Texas has this Nurse Licensure Compact and California is not a member? and isn't TEXAS BON going to ask for an explanation why you took the CA NCLEX just to have your license transferred to TEXAS.? would they require an explanation? Because am also thinking of applying for CA NCLEX then have it transferred to TEXAS...
    Hope to be advised on what I should do...
    God bless! and thank you..

    hi! i just passed the july 2010 board. Im now here in LA and I want to take my oath at the Philippine consul. The requirements include the certificate of passing which has the scores as well but I dont know how to get that. My friends back home arent instructed about that either i think. do you guys know how i can get that and what i need to submit?

    also, if i send an SPA to my representative so she can register for me, what other documents do i have to send as well?

    hey there! congrats for passing the board.

    i think BON sent the certificates of passing/board ratings of the students in my school (i'm not sure) then the teachers distributed them to respective students. since i was already here in texas that time, my brother had to go get it for me. it would be better if you call directly to your school and ask about that.

    in addition to the SPA, you have to send your representative a copy of your passport page showing your personal info and the page showing the date of entry abroad. and of course the required documents for initial registration in PRC. you can check their website for more info (PRC Official Website)

    • graduation from an approved school of professional nursing (general).

    remember though if you don't have a ssn then some states, especially ca, will not issue a license therefore you are not licensed in another state
