I received a letter from my state board of nursing two months after sending in my fingerprints for the CBC that the FBI rejected my fingerprints;they were smudged or something to that effect. In the letter they explained that I could continue to take the NCLEX exam as scheduled and receive the results of my exam but cannnot be a RN until I resubmit acceptable prints. This has been a nightmare, I resubmitted the prints the next day but I was wondering if anyone else had this problem and how long it took them to do the CBC...???

Technically it is no big deal, but I have now taken and passed the NCLEX, yet I am not a RN and will not be for another 4 weeks while the re-submitted prints are processing. Telling me it is no big deal is like saying "you failed NCLEX, well you can take it again in three months!" So, it may not seem like a big deal; but another month working as a CNA when all my classmates are with their preceptor making twice as much money is!
