    I would be grateful if you could help me answering my question.
    I am a nurse in Ukraine. In January 2010 I successfully passed the NCLEX-RN exam. Then I have got a letter from the California Board of Registered Nursing with notification that I have met all licensing requirements except for a valid U.S. Social Security Number (SSN) which I needed in order to get a permanent RN license.

    Can I get SSN being present in Ukraine?
    Or can I get a permanent license (not having SSN) with a help of SSN waiver?

    Thanks a lot for your help.

    You need to contact Social Security directly for a more detailed answer.

    No, you can't get a social security number like you order a pizza.

    Our SSN's have many more implications.

    You need a work visa to ply your trade in our country.

    The hospital in CA has to help you obtain one.

    You should coordinate your activities with your potential employer.

    No, that is an EIN, not a SSN.
