how long?

  1. I recently turned in my Tb paperwork, medical forms etc for an LVN job I have thankfully landed in a prison. I have done my fingerprints too.. I was wondering how long it usually takes to get an official start date- I feel like it's taking forever.. I have heard that the process can be lengthly. Any info would help.. THANKS!:spin:

    I'm presuming you are talking about a state agency. With our new hires there is not a straight answer. Part of the reason is that background checks are done by the state bureau of investigation, and the length of time depends upon their workload. I have seen things completed in as little as two weeks or as long as eight weeks. Your situation may be different.
