    Congrats on graduating! Good luck on NCLEX. When ever you come to MD, go to Baltimore to the MDBON. That's the ONLY way you'll get answers. Forget e-mails, phones, SOS or doves. With MDBON, everything is better done face to face.

    actually, when i went to the mbon a few months ago i was in & out after 10 minutes. i was quite shocked!! and when i passed the nclex, i had my license # the next business day (took my test friday, had license on monday morning). of course, it could have been the time of day & time of year too. i went around 4 pm. and it was in latemarch/early april..i guess that's a slow time of year. i imagine now that it will be somewhat chaotic.

    anyways, you need to get your background check & fingerprints done first. you have to take the paper to provide proof that you've done it when you go to the board. there is a place inside of the mall where the bon is located where you can get this done, it costs $57.25 i think maryland board of nursing - criminal history records check for nclex, endorsement and 1st-time cna applicants

    also, you have to bring the application filled out by your school. i think you can request it from the board. you will need a 2x2 passport photo to attach to the form. the application fee is $100. and then when you get there, you have to fill out a declaration of state form. here's the link that provides a little more information maryland board of nursing - nclex application instructions for a us trained rn

    nd of course, fill out your application to pearson vue & pay $200. good luck & congrats!

    Congrats on graduation! I'm from NY, grad and licensed in NY in 2009 and moved to MD a month ago. I honestly had no problem with getting my license in a timely fashion. I sent for the forms, got fingerprinted, sent money for both a temp and permanent license and got my temp license within two weeks and my permanent license in about a month. I called them twice with various questions and never had an issue getting a response. Maybe my experience was different but it was super easy for me. Good luck!

    It only took me a week. But I sent my application to Pearson Vue first before I took my papers to the BON (my school took FOREVER to sign off on our forms lol). To make things go faster, use your e-mail address when dealing with Pearson Vue. It's faster. Those who get correspondence from them via snail mail tend to wait longer.
