California Board of Registered Nuring Now Requires SSN to Apply for NCLEX

Effective on April 26, 2010 California Board of Registered Nursing (BRN) will no longer accept applications that do not contain a U.S. Social Security Number. 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.

For those applicants who have failed the exam and want to re-apply; CABRN will not accept re-application without U.S Social Security Number.

Attention Foreign Graduates

It is recommended that you have your transcripts evaluated by a Foreign Transcript Service.

If you are applying to the post-master's FNP Certificate program, it is required to have your transcripts evaluated by a Foreign Transcript Service.
