The state of MD requires a social to be licensed in that state. Not every state requires an SSN. Are you a foreign educated nurse? If so, there is a page on their site that gives you instructions, but you must have a social security number PRIOR to applying.

Here is a link to the Social Security Administration site with information for non-citizens on how to obtain a social security number: Learn what documents you need to get a Social Security Card

Please understand that you will not receive legal and/or immigration/citizenship advice on allnurses.com forum, it is against the term of use.

MD may accept application without a US SSN but will not issue a license without providing one. You can not get a US SSN until in the US with a valid work/immigrant visa
