How long did it take to receive license after passing boards?

    I know everyone is from a different state which means different boards but typically how long did it take to receive your RN license after you passed the NCLEX?

    I live in PA and my name and license number were on the BON website the day after I took the NCLEX. I can't remember how long it took the paper license to arrive.

    I'm from ohio, it usually takes 48 hrs for your name to be posted on the BON. However I took mine on a Friday so I didn't receive my results until Tues.

    I'm hearing GA is slow in posting your name especially now with one furlough day per week. I've heard it can take up to 4 weeks after passing the NCLEX. I got my ATT yesterday after applying Saturday so that gives me hope that maybe it'll be quicker than what people are saying. One of my friends graduated in December and it took a month for her class to get their ATTs and about 2 weeks for the license.

    I took boards on Tuesday morning, results were posted Wednesday morning, and I received my official results on that Saturday. I'm in Ohio.

    48 hours to get my quick results, and 72 hours for my name to pop up on the BON.

    I'm in TX, btw.

    I'm in CO, my Lic. # was posted on the states website the next day. My wallet card arrived within 5 days.

    i'm an old person and it was eight weeks before my license came in the mail after i took my boards (paper and pencil, two days of exams, about two months after graduation was the only time they were scheduled).

    all that time i had a piece of adhesive tape with "gn" on my name tag covering up the rn. and the day my license came i got assigned to an isolation room with full gown/mask/gloves garb.....and nobody could see my gn tape was off!!! ::sob::


    three whole days, huh?
