Hello, I am in Canada (Winnipeg) and I will be marrying my Fiancee next year. He lives in California and I will be moving there. I am currently a registered nurse (RN) here in Winnipeg. I was looking at the requirements to take the NCLEX for the states and saw that the CA board requires anyone who wants to take the NCLEX, have a social security number. I currently do not have a social security number and will not have one until I move to California next year. I want to take the NCLEX as soon as possible while I am here in Canada. I called the CA Board and they mentioned that I could take NCLEX for another state that does not require a social security number to take the NCLEX, such as Texas, and then when I move to California and get a social security number, I can register with the CA board.

I wanted a confirmation from the people on this forum if this is a valid approach. Has someone went through a similar situation?
