    Average wait time is ten days to see your name on their website, not the two or three days that you hear about. And if you graduated from a program in CA, then you could have been given permission to test before they had a completed file on you.. Name will never be posted until that happens, and it can take up to a month.

    Best of luck on your exam.

    If you submitted a SSN#, then you will see your name on the website, but again, the wait is usually about ten days on average and can be longer.

    If you trained overseas, you were not given permission to sit for the exam until you had a completed file. Suggest that you wait two weeks, if not posted by then, contact them to make sure that there were not any problems with your fingerprints, or something similar.

    nothing to get worried about, results can take a few days on average 10 days and that many days haven't passed

    I feel for you cali23. I haven't been waiting as long but am still full of anxiety. I took mine on Wed 9/19. What I am wondering about is the date on the board site. Under the permanent licensure verification link it gives an updated date as of 9/20. Does that mean exams taken through the 20th?

    I so do not want to go through this again.

    yea, well bon is a day behind & only post for the previous day. so like if today is the 21st, the update is for 20th. the earliest you can see your name on the website is 3days, but the average is suposedly 10. a friend of mine saw their name on the website on day 7. unfortunately it is day 10 for me today. Goodluck & hang in there, im sure you made it

    Hey there..
    I know what you're talking about. I took mine last Wednesday and haven't heard anything yet either. I have an IP and according to the website, that IP will not be taken down until my results have been mailed. I am feeling a little nervous. Keep your chin up, this exam isn't the end of the world and quite honestly, I'm tired of stressing over it so much. I'll just retake it if I failed.
    Good luck and let us know
