Passed NCLEX-RN, still have not received my license. Help please.

  1. 0
    I took the NCLEX-RN on December 20, 2011. I received my unofficial results on December 22nd that I had passed. The Georgia Board of Nursing website has still not been updated. Is anyone else in the same situation? Have any of you December grads received your licenses yet? How long does it take to receive your license in Georgia once passing the NCLEX? Any info you can supply is greatly appreciated.

    SJ Cory,

    Your in for a very long wait! They (GBON) had a meeting for the past three days. One would think these meetings would produce better fruit! Did you graduate for Excelsior? If so, you will need to do a preceptor-ship more than likely..One of the rules they should have changed at this latest meeting. Nevertheless, best wishes on receiving it,and Congratulations on passing! One hurdle down, and one to go!

    Thanks for replying. I actually graduated from GBCON in May. I took the NCLEX in July, but did not pass. I took it again in December and passed the second time.

    It's still alittle too soon w/the holidays to have gotten anything..I'd give it until the 30th then call them. Remember they will be closed this Mon. as well.

    Yes, I passed 12/22/11 results 12/24 and have not heard anything. Same with my study buddy. We have called and called... Told now that next week they may have an answer.

    Thanks everyone for your answers. It's so hard to get yourself out of the "anxious" mode for so long. You keep assuming the worst. I want to apply for jobs, but I want to have my license number first before doing so.

    Just wondering if anyone else has heard anything. When I called I was told to wait a few more days.

    I too am awaiting licensure; I am an EC graduate, passed boards 12/27; BON received the results 1st week in January. Still checking my status and it remains under review. I am getting very, very anxious and if I am to complete a preceptorship would like to start ASAP. *sigh*

    Shocked to find out that "traditional" grads are having the same/similar issue...*sigh*

    Have you tried calling? I called last Wednesday. They told me they had everything, but for some reason nothing had been done. She could not tell me more than that. She told me that someone from the Georgia BON would contact me within 48 hours. Well, no one ever called, BUT I did receive an email today from the GBON with my RN license number!!!! I don't know what happened. Maybe my application was sitting on someone's desk somewhere. Give them a call. Maybe they just need a gentle reminder.

    Congrats, SJ. I called today and got the same song and dance "your file is under review with the cognizant board...based on a first come first served basis". How long could it possibly take to review a file when all of the paper work was submitted very much before I took boards. I'm still trying to be patient but if I don't hear something by the middle of this month I am going to make arrangements to show up to the meeting in March.
