I am a new RN - passed my boards in MN last January (2011). I have been working as an RN in a hospital since last Feb (2011). I would like to apply for IL licensure asap but I keep getting a busy signal at the Springfield office...
...Does anyone know if I need to use a different number than the 217-782-8556 one?
Also - does it matter how long you've worked in a different state if you went to an accredited school?
(lol: all nurses emogi selection)
You may have found an answer already but in case not
toward the bottom of the page is a Registered Professional Nurse by Endorsement packet that lists everything you need.
I have experience with the busy signal annoyance. When I was trying to get my license verification from Illinois sent to Maine, I also kept getting a busy signal. Just keep calling. It is Illinois, so I figure that either most of the people working in the office are illiterate or drunk. When I did finally get through, a machine put me on hold and I listened to the Taxi theme song for 45 minutes.
Good luck to you!
