See Florida BON regulations and resources:

Licensure Information for Applicants Educated outside the UnitedStates and in Non-NCSBN Jurisdictions



Before a license can be issued, the licensee must have a social security number (SSN).
The SSN is not required to complete the application process and take the NCLEX exam
