License Verification

Posted
by JEMIK JEMIK Member

Hello guys! I passed the NCLEX (Illinois) earlier this June. However, It has been almost a month now since then and I still can't see my name on the registry. I am totally clueless about whether or not there is a process to activate my license. Can anyone please help me with this? Thanks in advance.

Did you have your SSN put in? They won't activate unless you have SSN

I have no SSN. I am a foreign applicant. So, I have no idea how I will be able to obtain one.

Here is a pertinent thread from 2015 (note requirements have changed, and you will need to obtain a SS# in order to get your nursing license):

Also more information (from 2018):

I wish you success in obtaining your US RN license!
