    Congrats! =] it usually takes 1-2weeks. But you can already start applying cause your license # and all the info you need is posted on the BRN website. Congrats again =]

    It depends on your state. Some states post a license number (all you need to apply for jobs) online within 1-2 days. Other states take several weeks to post a license number. The most accurate resource for this question will be your state BON. Call them and ask.

    This reminds me of the old saw about how long a cold lasts with and without treatment. With treatment, about 7 days. Without treatment, about a week.

    Your license will come in somewhere between two and eight weeks depending on how well-staffed your state's BON is. If you really have to know, call them and ask them directly. But it'll get there anyway.

    Depends on the state and if they actually sent out a license. My state does not, you get a number and a website to verify, no actual paper license.
