Default Getting a social security number for non-working purpose

Hi, I’m a foreign student and I’m looking toward taking major in nursing, but since I do not have a social security number, I can't participate in clinical experience at hospital. Instructor said that if I get social security number I’ll be able to participate in clinical experience. Is there a type of social security number for educational purpose? If there is one, how can I get it?
Thanks.

Not heard of this in the International forum on www.allnurses.com and a few international students post and complete their training without SSN

If you have F-1 status and are authorized to work you can be assigned an SSN.

https://secure.ssa.gov/apps10/poms.nsf/lnx/0100203470
RM 00203.470 Evidence for SSN Card — Foreign Student (F-1 and M-1)

Non work SSNs are only given out to people eligible for state or federal benefits that require an SSN and don't have work authorization.

If only it were true. LOL

Here's Your Sign - By Bill Engvall

Stupid people should have to wear signs that just say, "I'm stupid". That way you wouldn't rely on them, would you? You wouldn't ask them anything. It would be like, "Excuse me... oops, never mind, didn't see your sign."

It's like before my wife and I moved. Our house was full of boxes and there was a U-Haul truck in our driveway. My neighbor comes over and says "Hey, you moving?" I say, "Nope. We just pack our stuff up once or twice a week so see how many boxes it takes. Here's your sign."

A couple of months ago I went fishing with a buddy of mine, we pulled his boat into the dock, I lifted up this big 'ol stringer of bass and this idiot on the dock goes, "Hey, y'all catch all them fish?" I says, "Nope, talked 'em into giving up. Here's your sign."

Last time I had a flat tire, I pulled my truck into one of those side-of-the-road gas stations. The attendant walks out, looks at my truck, looks at me, and I SWEAR he said, "Tire go flat?" I couldn't resist. I said, "Nope. I was driving around and those other three just swelled right up on me. Here's your sign."

We were trying to sell our car about a year ago. A guy came over to the house and drove the car around for about 45 minutes. We get back to the house and he gets out of the car, reaches down and grabs the exhaust pipe, then says, "Darn that's hot!" See? If he'd been wearing his sign, I could have stopped him.

If I was brave enough I would give the wife one one ..

I jumped in the pool during a rain storm and she shouts out
"get out of the pool you gonna get soaked"
