The California Board of Nursing requires a United States Social Security Number to apply for a California nursing license...From my research, I figure I must apply through a state that does not require a SSN to apply for a nursing license (for example, Minnesota) and then obtain licensure by endorsement to California (basically transfer my license from MN to CA).Does anyone know if there is any way around that? Is it possible to get a US SSN without being American? I know previously, California used to accept applications without a SSN however, they no longer do. As far as I know, once my license has been transfered to California (or in the process of) and I get a job, I can apply for a SSN once I have a letter of employment?Has anyone had experience with this?!Any additional information would be greatly appreciated!!
