Have you tried going online to the Board of Registered Nursing California, under permanent license, type in your last and first name. If you passed, your name will have your license number next to it. You don't need to use a SSN.

CA will not issue a license without a SSN therefore will not be published on the web. All that CA applicants will get when they do not have a SSN is a letter telling them they meet BON requirements and have to provide a SSN once in the US with a valid work permit

CA sends out the letters at the same time, they do not distinguish between pass or not pass.

If the nurse does not have a SSN#, no license will be issued, so their name will not be seen on the CA BRN website, even a year later, if they do not present the SSN#. CA only issues a letter that the nurse has passed, but no actual license.

And Anna is quite correct in what she told you. American nurses will see their names on the website when the license number has been issued. Any foreign nurse that does not have a SSN# will not be issued a license until they can give them a SSN#. They actually have three years from the time that the letter is sent out to submit the SSN#, or their application gets cancelled. This is why you see so many from overseas mentioning three years. Canadians and those from Mexico can qualify for the Nafta TN Treaty Visa, so they can get the SSN# earlier and get their license sooner. But they still need to be in the US to get the SSN# and ready to work with visa in hand.

Just trying to clear this up for any others that are reading this forum.
