Hello Fellow Nurses,
Does anyone know, how long [average...] does it take for NBV to process RN registration? NBV received all my requirements and payment since January 2008 and I haven't received any positive outcome since then. I tried calling several times, they usually put callers on automatic nominal on-hold for about 30 mins. or so. And, once the operator answers, usually tells me it's still under process.
Is applying to other board i.e. Nurses Board of South Australia better?
Seems to me that NBV is full of backlogged applcations? I had my US RN license in less than four months - from Registration to Credential Verification, to Eligibility and Examination until I received my ID license. This is pretty quick despite the thousands of applications are done each day, still managed to accomplish their job quickly and efficiently.
I'd expected Australian Nursing Boards to be better but I guess not....
