Board of nursing

  1. I live in New Jersey working as an LPN. I know it's my fault my license expired. I thought I updated my address correctly but the renewal letters were being sent to my old address and with the busy of life it just went out my mind. Well I filled out the needed packet with checks. Here we are going on week 3 and I keep calling. Nothing has been scanned in I overnighted the packet it is there. I'm not sure how much longer my job is going to accommodate my mistake for. My question how long has anyone in NJ that had to wait to reinstate there licence?

    NJ is notorious for lengthy waits. There have been some testimonials of staff who've gone IN PERSON to the office to pick up their documents. And it worked.

    Might be an option for you???? Just make sure you know where you're supposed to go.

    I sent my completed packet and checks over night and have confirmation it was received 7/27/17.

    Probably 4-6 weeks for a reinstatement assuming you included penalty fees.
