Initial License After Passing NCLEX-RN
- 0Jun 22, '12 by icu_rn_2012How long has it taken some of you to appear on the Illinois registry? Seems like I sent in my $50 weeks ago and they haven't even cashed it.

- 1Jun 25, '12 by drbettnerI am wondering the same thing!!! I can not believe how long it is going to take! I guess I did not realize I would be waiting real long. I have a job that will not allow me to start until my license has posted to the IDPFR website. The orientations are the beginning of each month, so it is looking like now I will be waiting for August! Wish my bills could wait also! Very FRUSTRATED!
- 1Jun 26, '12 by icu_rn_2012Agreed! I tested on June 6th and sent in my check for licensure on the 13th. I, too, am in the same boat with orientation. We have ours twice a month and tomorrow is the 2nd one for June...so it looks like I will be waiting until July 10th. Extremely frustrating. Two people that tested with me appeared on the site today. Good luck!
- 0Jun 26, '12 by mpklI passed on June 9, received a confirmation letter and the form for a license application. I Paid the licensure fee, it has been almost 2 weeks, I haven't received the license and I don't even see my name on IL BON. I am kind of worried because I cannot get a job. Anywhere you go, they will ask for your license.
Any help? Should I call IDPFR or just wait....I wish my bills would wait too!
- 0Jun 26, '12 by icu_rn_2012I tried calling them today but was told by the operator that the dept. we need to speak with has such a high volume of calls good luck getting through...pretty much. The classmates of mine that are on the IL BON site have yet to have their checks cashed (so don't base it off of that). Here's to hoping we show up soon! Ready to get some bills paid off!!!
- 1Jun 27, '12 by drbettnerI got thru to them on Monday the 25th and they told me that they are 2 -2 1/2 weeks behind. I wonder what their system is~is it by test date or arrival of the app? I guess the old saying is a watched pot never boils, well a watched website never adds!!!
Best of luck to you all that are waiting also!!!
