Applicants Without a Social Security Number or Individual Tax Identification Number

In accordance with HB 454, as of October 1, 2023, individuals with an individual tax identification number (ITIN) may file an online application for licensure or certification with the Maryland Board of Nursing. The applicant need only login to the Board’s online application portal and complete the appropriate application, entering the ITIN in the field where the SSN is requested. The licensing system will distinguish the ITIN from a SSN. For registered nurse and licensed practical nurse applicants with an ITIN, a “Maryland Only” license will be issued once it has been determined that all licensure requirements have been met.

Applicants who do not hold an SSN or ITIN and are applying with alternative documentation as permitted by the Department of Health and Human Services under section 466(A)(13) of the Social Security Act, (the “Act”) must complete and submit a paper application along with the signed affidavit.  Please see instructions and applications below
