I have an RN license in Vermont but can not renew it because it now requires SSN for license renewal

How can I obtain SSN for me to renew my license?

Just asking because once I get my Australian citizenship (originally from the Philippines) which is early next year I plan to fly to the US and work there.

I dont know but it is always my dream. I love sports and I want to watch the NBA and NFL live. Ive been to LA SF NY Vegas in 2012 and just really enjoyed my stay there.

I want to comeback again for a longer holiday and work at the same time. I am 31 now so a working holiday visa is not an option since it is only for 30yrs and younger so please dont suggest that:cat:

There are a lot of members in this forum so hopfeully someone can help me out.

Cheers

Until in the US with valid work or immigrant visa you can not apply for US SSN. Even once you have sorted Australia citizenship you still need to find employer in the US before flying to work there

Hi Silverdragon

Do you have any idea if nursing agencies can be a sponsor for a working visa or only hospitals or healthcare facilities can?

I just want to work for nursing agencies to make me flexible in moving from state to state

Oh ok

Thanks

I think it is better if i just contact the US immigration and certain agencies instead of asking here

Seems like no one wants to share their experience once they found out the answer to their enquiry or

no one is in the same boat as me.

I am pretty sure that there are a lot of international nurses here who can not renew their licenses because

of the SSN requirement but having said that, no seems interested to respond

Thanks Silverdragon for your time

Cheers
