Am I required to have a US Social Security Number to obtain a Florida nursing license?

A Social Security Number (SSN) is not required in order to take the exam; however, Florida law prohibits a license from being issued until a SSN is received. Prior to being made eligible for the exam, any references to the SSN still pending are provided solely for the information of the applicant.

For additional information with regards to the Social Security Number process, you may contact the Social Security Administration at or by calling 1-800-772-1213. Once you have received your SSN, you may submit a copy of the SSN card to our office by fax or regular mail. Upon receipt of the SSN card, if your file is 100% complete you will be issued a license. If any further problems are found you will be notified in writing of what items may be needed.
