Hi everyone. I am not sure where to post this. I am looking for some answers about my plan to transfer to NJ. My case is very specific so I will try to get it all straight and short.

1. I am a Canadian with active license from NY. I am educated in the Philippines.

2. I am planning to apply for jobs in the US by virtue of NAFTA. I have a CGFNS visa screen certificate on hand.

3. A job offer came from NJ. I am trying to endorse from NY, however SSN is required. I don’t know how could I possibly get one given I still live in Canada. I called NJBON to ask if ITIN would do and they told me not sure about it.

 

I am not sure what steps I should do from now. Also, I understand I need to get CES report which I don’t know if I should process by now or wait till I get SS.

 

Thank you for reading my post and I appreciate any input.

One answer is use current paperwork to get nafta visa and then apply for US SSN and once you receive it submit to new BON and wait for license. Just see if you can arrange a delayed start with job.

Hi. I am Canadian as well. The State (Maine) that I applied required an SSN as well. As per the Maine RN Endorsement document - I needed to process the CGFNS - Visa Screen since I do not have SSN. Then I could get the TN visa then apply for SSN.

In order for a Canadian Nurse (that does not have a green card) to obtain a U.S. Social Security Number, he/she must contact the Commission on Graduates of Foreign Nursing Programs (CGFNS) at www.cgfns.org and complete the Visa Screen Certification process. Once this is completed the applicant may apply for a Visa (must provide proof of intent to be hired for employment in Maine), and then apply for a U.S. Social Security Number.

I got a job offer & the hospital lawyer told me a solution that the hospital can send a letter (proof of employment) to the Maine State BON in order for them to give me an ?Temporary RN license (as far as I remember) since I needed Maine State RN license to get my TN visa. 

* So far, I am waiting for my graduation date this June to receive my diploma then send to MS BON as proof of RN education then they can proceed with my RN license. They did not accept my BSN transcript but wanted a copy of my diploma. I guess because I am a practical nurse who upgraded into BScN.
