California BRN Requires Social Security Numbers for Licensure Applicants

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.

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.
