How long before your license shows on breeze?

  1. Has anyone recently taken the California LPN NCLEX and if so how long did it take before your license showed up on Breeze? Space I took my exam on January 31st and I got the good pop up and now it's been 2 weeks and I still haven't received my official results and my results are not on Breeze. Is anyone else in this situation?

    Your license number will not appear on Breeze anytime soon because you simply do not have a license number yet.

    When you receive notification of the passing result via mail, you must mail a copy of this notification along with a $150 check or money order to the California BVNPT. The $150 is the fee that pays for your LVN license.

    The BVNPT staff cashes the $150 check or money order, then your license number appears on the Breeze website a few weeks later. Overall, be patient: this process could take more than a month, perhaps longer.

    Thank you for the information I recently moved to Washington so I plan on transferring my license as soon as it's posted, so I don't actually need the hard copy license for the state of California because it won't do me any good, do I still need to pay the $150?

    They won't issue you a license number "to post" without paying the licensing fee... so yes you have to pay CA the fee for the license because you need an original license to "transfer." And then you'll have to deal with super slow CA when you endorse your license into WA.

    Yes, you need to pay the $150 fee. If you do not pay, you will never be issued a license number in California whatsoever. This has nothing to do with the hard copy license card. No LVN license number will be posted to Breeze if you do not pay up.

    Without payment of the $150 fee, you are considered unlicensed in CA. The $150 is what pays for your license number. You must pay.

    I took my exam on Saturday Feb 4th. On Monday I got the good pop up.
    I went on breeze on Wednesday and I was able to log on and pay for my initial license. On Friday 2/10 my license number showed up online.
    Good Luck!

    I took my exam on a Friday and my license # showed up on breeze the following Wednesday. It was nerve wracking to wait. I didn't do the pop up trick because I was afraid to lose money and not sure if it works anyway. Good luck

    How did you able to apply a license on breeze website? I can't find any option to pay the initial application for the license. Thank you.

    I have the option to apply for
    initial license but don’t know if I should pay cause it was asking a scanned copy of my results. And up to now I still dont have a letter saying I pass. Just wondering should I pay it now? lol and also If I have the option to apply for Initial VN license does that mean I pass?? I took my exam last Sep 8,2017. Thank you

    You probably shouldn't pay for it yet if you haven't gotten your results through the mail because if worse comes to worse and you failed then you paid the $150 for nothing and there are no refunds. Just wait it out.

    so your saying that having the option to pay for initial license doesnt guarantee that you pass?? That kinda weird though why would they let you pay if you didnt pass?? oh boy...

    Paid my initial license 9/26. Logged in today and my license number is posted on breeze. It took 9 days to process. Anyway, license/ registration expiration is 11/30/2018. What does it mean?
