I graduated from nursing school
35 years ago and have been out of practice for 20 years....yesterday I took NCLEX-RN to have my license re-instated. If the PVT is correct, I passed!! I read a post from a year ago that talked about timeframes until your license is posted on Board website, til results are mailed, and licensing.
I'm a little hazy about what is next and if any addition $$ is required for the actual license (read someone say they sent money to get their license after they received their results).
I would appreciate recent California experiences, from past few months, on timeframes from NCLEX date:
1) being able to find yourself as a licensed on the Board website
2) receiving your results by mail
3) anything else that needs to happen after you get your results--such as submitting additional forms/fees
I have appreciated the nitty-gritty I have learned from this site!
Thanks everyone! Also, happy to share experiences with anyone who is reaching WAAAYYYYY back into their background regarding preparing to take the NCLEX after license has lapsed more than 8 years.
