California BRN Requires Social Security Numbers for Licensure Applicants
Posted in NCLEX News by admin On May 3, 2010. 2 Comments
The California State Board of Registered Nursing (BRN) will no longer accept applications that do not contain a U.S. Social Security Number.
The announcement was made on their official website. http://www.rn.ca.gov/
The Nursing Practice Act provides for a unified examination and licensing application. Once an applicant passes the examination, a license is automatically issued. Under these circumstances the BRN cannot accept applications for the examination and licensure without a U.S. social security number.

With this ruling, there will be no more NCLEX applicants to California from the foreign-educated nuses from the Philippines and elsewhere.
