california license verification for visascreen application

YUWESAREN YUWESAREN (New) New

hi! how can i have my california license verified if i haven't been issued a license yet due to lack of ssn? i didn't declare in my visascreen application that i already have a license in california because they asked for my license number which i don't have yet. i just put there that i already passed the nclex. can't they just verify with pearson vue the results of my exam?

Pearson-Vue has no control over your results. They are unable to share them with anyone. The only one that can release your results is the Board of Nursing, or the BRN for CA and that requires your written permission. Peason-Vue just acts as an agenct for the Boards of Nursing, nothing more.

You will need to use the form that comes with the VSC application and send it into the BRN to complete and please include $60USD for them to do that for you.

And you were correct not to include the license on the VSC form as you do not have one.

Good Day,

I would like to ask on what to do about my license verification from NCLEX RN California for my ICHP visascreen. I would prefer payment thru credit card. Please help me. Thank you.

You complete the form that is with the VSC application and then send it to CA BRN to complete. And they require a payment of $60 US for it. And believe that the payment must be by bank draft for it.

You can check with them to see what they will accept.

Thank You Suzanne. I Believe They Dont Have A Credit Card Payment Scheme..thank You.

Hi to all, I am in the process of completing my visa screen. For license verification step, since I am not yet a license holder (just an NCLEX passer for that matter) which one should I pay: copy of test result or ICHP Visa Screen? or both? I am just confused as to what form should I send.

Miscellaneous Fees

DESCRIPTION FEE AMOUNT Certified Copy of School Transcript $30 Confirmation of License Renewal Letter $2 Copy of Test Results $10 Dishonored Check Penalty $15 Duplicate License $30 ICHP Visa Screen $60 Verification of CA RN Licensure $60

I read somewhere in one of the threads here that I will be using the form (License Verfication Form), even though I don't have the license yet (No SSN , no License requirement of California BON).

For the VSC processing, the cost is $60 for CA to complete the paperwork. It is verification that you have passeds the NCLEX exam as there is no license to verify.

They are not asking for a copy of the test result, but the form that is with the application needs to be completed by the BRN and their fee is the $60 for that.

hi, i would like to know, about the visa screen application, am i allowed to send the documents sealed and signed from my school to the ICHP or the ICHP need the documents from my school specifically? I am planning to personally send the documents in u.s instead of sending it from philippines so that they will receive it immediately..thank you..

As long as the envelope is sealed and signed you shouldn't have any problems sending the documentation yourself but would recommend using a carrier like FedEx, UPS etc so you can keep track of it and have record it has reached destination

thanks so much!

Hi suzanne, i would like to ask what step will i do next? i just passed my NCLEX exam in cali and i want to endorse my results to the state of IL. I'm just wondering, will i endorse first my license before i do my visa screen? or the other way around?

Do you actually have a SSN#? If not, then you cannot endorse your results and must use the License by Examination application.

Also not sure what type of visa that you have since you are needing the VSC. You are looking at more than five years for a chance at a green card or to be able to adjust your status, chances are more than likely that the VSC will need renewing by then.

If you go for licensure in Illinois first, then you will be required to obtain verification from them as well for the VSC.

Thanks for the reply :lol2:

no i don't have an SSN. I'm a foreign graduate nurse from the Phil., I'm thinking to start my VSC now so the process is moving while im here in US..then wait for the retrogression to be lifted in the phil.. And if it is lifted i will apply for licensure by examination to IL to transfer my results.

Is that a nice idea suzanne?:coollook:

We do not expect it to be lifted for more than seven years with the number that are already inline in front of you. The VSC is not actually needed until one is ready for their interview if going thru Consular Processing out of the country. Only passing of the NCLEX is required for an employer to offer you a job in the first place.

I would wait to do anything with Visa Screen at this time. But just make sure that you go thru Illinois for licensure before your letter expires. No sense to do it now.

oh i see :idea:

thanks for the suggestion suzanne but yesterday i called BRN of IL and they said that i cannot apply for licensure by examination to them coz they also need SSN number to give me license so they said that i wait for my SSN number in cali and then endorse to them my cali license.

Is that make sense?

thanks again

The majority of states are changing their requirements now. They will permit someone to sit for the NCLEX in each and every state without the SSN#, but most will not issue a license without the SSN# any longer.

Since you have already tested, there is nothing that Illinois can do until you possess a SSN# and a license to endorse. You would be applying for licensure by examination and then CA would have to submit the results to them. But there is nothing that they can do so they do not want to keep an open file on you for multiple years.

VT is still issuing a license without a SSN#, but do not know how much longer that this will be in place.

okay, thanks so much suzanne, your a great help

Hello, I am a nurse from the Philippines. I took and passed my NCLEX for California but I don't have my SSN yet.

I am also applying for my visascreen. I read on the Ca BRN website that I need to send my "Validation of Registration/License For VisaScreen" to the following address:

California Board of Registered Nursing

Attn: Renewals Unit

P.O. Box 944210

Sacramento, CA 94244-2100

However, I received an email from the Renewals Unit where they said that since I do not yet have a license, all questions/paperwork should go through the licensing unit.

Do you think I should change the "Attn" to Licensing Unit? I'm worried, I don't want it to be lost because I sent it to the wrong unit. :-|

hello! i also have the same question... please please can somebody post the exact address where we can send via Fed-ex the Request for Validation of Registration/License for Visa Screen together with the $60 bank draft...

do not post a link, it really confuses me.

or...just tell me which one of these?

1.)Board of Registered Nursing

1625 North Market Boulevard, Suite N217

Sacramento, CA 95834-1924

2.)California Board of Registered Nursing

Attn: Renewals Unit

P.O. Box 944210

Sacramento, CA 94244-2100

:redbeatheMuch love!

[and what is the difference between the $10 bank draft and the $60 i've been hearing and reading about???]
