IEN Nursing Practice Gap

  1. Hi, I am planning to apply for California Nursing Licensure. I am expecting to have my US SSN in around 3 months time-physically not in the states-through my husband (he holds a green card). My question is, can I start my California Nursing licensure process and submit my SSN at a later stage? Does the council allow that?

    I gave my NCLEX already. Please help.

    Thank you.

    Hi again,
    I haven't practiced as an RN for the last 2 years.

    California will not accept application without a US SSN
