Arkansas application by examination

  1. Hi,

    I am a french trained nurse and I sent my application for licensure by examination to the Arkansas BON last week. They got it on Wednesday. I would like to know if any of you have an idea of a timeframe for them to get back to me ? (regardless of the fact that I have been trained in France. I already went or am about to go through all the equivalence's steps required)
    Also, can I do the background check process before I hear from them? (I already paid online for that and got the fingerprints card in the mail)

    Thank you so much in advance
