I am a recent graduate of a BSN nursing program in Iowa. I took and passed my boards about a month and a half ago(Which took forever to actually get my approval to test from the state of Illinois). I have still not received any word on the status of my license and I am becoming very frustrated because my fellow graduates have already passed boards and become officially licensed in no time at all back in Iowa. Anyone know exactly how long before I am officially an RN instead of a person who just passed their boards????
