    The only info I have is that IL is not a "walk-thru" state. Although, you can get a temporary permit.

    You have to do the fingerprint thing, too....arrrgggggg.

    The Office of Professional Registration is located in Springfield. When I moved here from Indiana - it seemed to take forever - actually about 8 weeks to get an RN license.
