I see that Illinois does not have a Board Of Nursing and seems to be regulated by the state licensing and regulation department. I just read the requirements for a International Educated Nurse and it say they only require Social Security number upon renewal of licenses. So this means they will issue a RN license without a Social Security Number? And I wonder how long you can hold a license before you renew? Their website is very poorly written compared to other states. http://www.idfpr.com/Renewals/apply/FORMS/CGFNS_02.pdf
