California NP license

  1. 0
    Hello all.
    I am very frustrated so had to write on this board. I graduated in december and applied for my NP license and furnishing # back in November which payments have cleared almost 4 months ago.

    I have wonderful job offers from multiple clinics however my license have not updated on website. I called numerous times to boards and 90% of time phone has busy signal. Emailed them countless times with no response. Few times I got through they told me to give it another week. And another week goes by with no changes. The employer needs me to have valid NP license and furnishing number before I start not to mention I would need to apply for my DEA which will take another 2-3 months once NP furnishing number becomes available.

    This is so frustrating to just wait and nothing happens. Any suggestions???

    BTW I have colleagues who graduated same time as me and their license was up back in January. The rep I spoke to told me few weeks ago they have all the information from me and its matter of getting it processed. I know there has been a delay according to the boards website but I am beginning to think my license will not update for a long time and I keep telling my employers give it another week. Not sure how patient they will be with me. Also I need to start paying off my loans. First payment is due this month. *sigh*

    I am in the same boat as you. I graduated in November 2013, applied for my NP license in December and so far no license. I have called the BON numerous times and I got the same answer as what you heard. I finally got the evaluator's direct phone number and was able to talk to him. I am working on what's missing from my application. If you want pm me and I'll provide you with the contact number I have.

    Hello CAFNP. I don't know how I can PM you. This was my first post. I read somewhere you have to have minimum # of posts before you can PM someone. :-(

    Hi CAFNP. I don't think I can PM you. This was my first post. Can you PM me with the #?

    I am also in the same boat waiting for my California license, but I do have a question though, may I apply for my furnishing license now or must I wait until I get the California license. I can't get anyone on the phone at the board of nursing to ask that question.

    The application for Furnishing License has a box that asks for an NP license number. That suggests that licensed NP's must apply for the Furnishing License. However, it doesn't necessarily mean you can't apply simultaneously for NP and NPF. You just won't get your NPF license until you get the NP license.

    I applied for my NP furnishing number and NP license at the same time. When did you apply for your California license? If you haven't done so, I recommend you apply for the furnishing license asap since that will take some time to process and lot of employers want you to be able to prescribe by the time you start working.
