1. What exactly is the jurisprudence exam? The Jurisprudence exam is about the laws governing a PT working in that state. In FL (where I am) it is not that difficult and in some states it is an "open book" exam, meaning you can have the law book in front of you as you complete the exam.
Is it difficult compared to the NPTE exam? The NPTE is much more difficult
2. What does this internship is exactly? It means you can not practice without a licensed PT watching you.
What pay I will be getting during that time? some places will pay you, some will not.
Where can I read about it? http:// http://www

3. I have a 1st degree is PT. I saw on APTA's website there is a thing called a transition program which end up with a high degree than my current one, however I saw it is not recognized by CAPTE. Does anyone have any experience with that? I might be better off doing a masters degree in Israel before immigration? The Masters degree is defintely better as far as credentialing and immigration goes because it includes clinical time and the transitional dpt doesn't. (that I've seen) What credentialing have you done?
4. I saw that in order to get a license in CA one must have an SSN. How do I get one? To get one you either have to be a student in the states or have your working or immigrant visa.
All that being said if you are coming into the states to work as a PT, California is probably the worst state to choose. Because of all of the information above and because the cost of living is very high (but your pay doesn't follow). Were there any reasons in particular you picked CA?
