Dec 7, '08you mean for the GC availability?
No, zero difference! Your country of birth, that is what counts, so several years waiting time.
Dec 7, '08Quote from superprincesspeachNope makes no difference you can no adjust your visa in the US employer can only file I140 and that does not give permission to stay in the US and work, all it means is once you have I140 approval you join the long queueoh really? yikes. does it make a difference if i have a tourist visa and would be taking the nclex in the US?
Dec 18, '08another question guys, i can use a recognized livescan fingerprint vendor here in illinois even if i was a foreign educated student right? at least that's what the lady at the idfpr told me earlier when i was requesting for a fingerprint card. just making sure
Dec 19, '08^thanks! i can't thank you guys enough for answering my questions, makes applying a bit easier. hopefully my ces report will be mailed soon after the holidays and i can have my fingerprints taken and then my application form with cts can finally be processed. hahaha i think my file is gathering dust already because it's been 3 months since i sent in my payment, 4 page application, and the ct-nur
Jan 23, '09Hello guys,
sorry for being away for quite some time, I needed to focus on the NCLEX.
I don't know what to say about it but I'd like to share the outcome with you guys.
I logged in to pearsonvue.com for the quick results after like 60 hours and here's my result:
I mean, that's it right? I made it through the test? Whats the next thing to do then?
I tried checking idfpr for a license look-up but I didn't find my name. Is the quickresults accurate?
Jan 23, '09Quick Results are the actual results and what the BON will receive from Pearson-Vue. The only reason that they are unofficial is that only the BON can issue a license.
Not all states post licenses right away, some can take more than a week to get things up.
But you have passed and that is what counts.

Please never do this. If the application is not complete, then do not send it in. There are actually quite a few states that are returning applications and not doing a thing with them if all is not received by them in a timely fashion. And it is highly recommended that one never send in any application until the CES report is actually completed as well. There is no reason for a BON to hang onto a file that they cannot do one thing with, they cannot even check the fingerprints while waiting.
Why do they need to have the responsibility of watching the file when there is nothing in it that they can do anything with? Without the CES report, they will not do anything with it, or can they do a thing since your transcripts are part of the CES report and without the fingerprints being submitted at the same time, then there is not one thing that they can do. And I would not be surprised if the file is not there when they have had to wait for so long. All it does is waste everyone's time, and at a time when there are not as many people at many of the BONs either.
Jan 23, '09Thank you Miss Suzzane, thank you very much.
You and the guys guided me through every step. I cannot thank you enough.
God Bless you!
Jan 23, '09Much of the information in this thread can be considered out of date now since the requirements have changed since this thread was first started several years ago.
I am going to close it and then start a new thread with the current requirements for Illinois to make it easier for everyone here.
