    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!
    can you provide proof of this.... il can not issue ssn only the federal government can do this and for that they need legal proof that you are in the us with a legal work/immigrant visa. the il bon may issue their own number for the license but a ssn can not be issued by the bon

    how do i get a number and card?

    to apply for a social security number and card:

    * complete an application for a social security card (form ss-5); and
    * show us original documents or copies certified by the issuing agency proving:
    o u.s. citizenship or immigration status [including department of homeland security (dhs) permission to work in the united states];
    o age; and
    o identity.

    Very unlikely that this is true.

    BON does not issue SSN, only the US Social Security Administration.
    They will ask for proof of your legal stay in the US, work elligibility , age, & identity, you may mail or go to their office in the US. They will mail you if your papers are valid for additional requirements like biometrics/fingerprinting/photo ID. Do not believe what other are saying reg SSN, its a hoax...go visit the website of US Social Security administration...
    btw, not all SSN are valid for work, there's 3 types one that is valid for work, one that is valid for work but w/ DHS authorization, and the last is not valid for work. So it does not mean that when you have SSN you may work in the US.

    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
