Just curious if anyone knows...Took it Sat. a.m. and paid the Quick Results fee this a.m. to find out I passed...(feel bad for people in the NON-Quick results states--that's cruel)...Now, about how... Read More

    THANKS! You are what makes allnurses.com so great...I didn't realize there was a phone verification line...Here it is for others who may want to check: 1-518-474-3817 (press prompt #4, then #1).
    nyforlove: when I used this number to call and put in my SSN I heard "this SSN could not be found". Does it mean they are still working on it or they don't even have my file? Did you hear the same message?

    hi everyone,

    [color=#483d8b]clueless here, i applied for licensure in ny passed the nclex on sept 23. i am wondering if i would be automatically licensed without completing the child abuse and infection control yet, are those needed asap in order to have a license number? will it mean no license number if those were not done? im planning to do the child abuse and infection control next week though next week though.

    [color=#483d8b]thanks!!!

    congratulations!!!
    I have one question: I took the exam last Friday and got the quick result on sunday--pass. I also received the mail from BON said i passed the exam yesterday, but still can't find my name till now. Do i need to finish the child abuse first to get my license?
    Thank you!

    If you recently graduated from a NYS nursing program, the child abuse part should've been included in your curriculum....

    You're welcome

    Yeah, it takes awhile in NY to get the results. I actually called the BON's phone number daily starting around day four to verify an active license (you can do that at any time, too, it's a 518 number) and nearly keeled over one morning when I HEARD my NUMBER!!! I kept hitting the "repeat" option to hear it again....SO exciting. I then immediately went to the website (again, had been going there daily, lol) and there it was.

    Nope, not going to job fair, I'm now gainfully employed, but it sure looks like fun! AND you get 50% off Advance Shop stuff (the magazine catalog). Have a great time
    Nyforlove. I am in your boat. I took my test on Sept 21, found out I passed on the 23rd. Received the letter from state education department (which had my pic on it,) that I PASSED!! Now here is the enigma. A classmate of mine took the test the same day as mine, their name is on the BON website 6 days later, mine... not there. Another classmate took it the day AFTER me, her name was listed 7 days after her test date.

    Now it has been 9 days and counting, today is Saturday, so I guess I'll have to wait until Monday, (which will be the 12th day). I wonder why it takes so long for certain people. This is emotionally draining. I've called the number and they said my SSN is not on file, but I guess that's because I'm not licensed yet. Once your actually licensed then you hear the number ............. *Sigh*

    When I call on Monday, I will definitely question them why it took so long. We could be losing jobs to people who took test after us???

    Yeah, you're right...there are real consequences to not getting listed promptly--like being passed over for jobs--but I told employers I had just passed and they seemed confident that the actual license would be forthcoming...I wonder what the BON's "system" is for processing---how could someone passing it AFTER you who also graduated at the SAME time as you--be licensed BEFORE you? Hhhmmm, I'll check again Monday and hopefully my # will be on-line so I can print it and have it ready for interviews.....

    It can be any number of reasons..............an address change since you first applied to them will throw out your file, and then they send a letter asking you for verification. The files are manually processed, depends on who is handling your file, etc.

    As long as you have a written letter from them that you passed, no jobs should be held up.

    Well I called today, and as it turns out... Pearson did not send my passiing results to New York BON. Unbelievable, if I had not called would they have ever figured it out? how careless can they be? They said I should see my name in 3 days. So you may want to give them a call.

    Nyforlove, Im curious did you take your test in Lower Manhattan? thats where I took mine.

    Oh my god!!! But, you HAD received the letter from BON (w/your pic) stating that you passed and yet still there was a problem...that's nuts....Yes, I also took it at the Wall Street location...I'm going to call now. Thanks so much for letting me know!
