    All the information and forms you need should be on the Illinois BON website. Have you looked there?

    Everyone please keep in mind that not all 50 states are involved in the reciprocity exchange. For each new state you go to, you must go online to their BON and download the appropriate forms for ENDORSEMENT. If you took your program in one state and are thinking of doing the NCLEX in a second state, I wouldnt reccomend it. It is easier to just do your paaperwork and test in the state that your program is in. (I just waited three months for GA to tell me they wont accept my credits from my program in FL and all of my classmates in FL are already licenssed). Good luck to all

    Ok, how about RN license in Hawaii, but less than 1 year exp and went through "non-traditional" program? Moving to Georgia, and I know that there has been a big deal about the non-trad programs and licensure in Ga. Anybody know about this one? I have read the Ga BON requirements, but it sounds like the BON can decide that I need to do a pre-ceptorship-how would you find one of those if you didn't go to school in GA?
    PLEASE HELP!!!
    Its starting to feel like I just can't win-finally get through school, pass exams, get license-but not good enough for GA? WTH...

    To anyone attempting to get an IL license...keep in mind that there are between 1 and 3 people staffing the nursing license office *for the entire state*. No, really.

    This means that if you are applying for reciprocity from out of state, you will be pushed back behind those who have taken the exam in IL (or so the dude who used to work in that office told me once) and are waiting. IL has a horrible record relative to time between application and approval, mostly because of it being one person.
