I submitted my application for the NJ NCLEX RN, including a letter of completion from my school over 5 weeks ago. I have spoken to the NJ BON several times in the past week, and apparently my entire application is on file except... Read More

    Does anybody know how long it takes to get a license number once you pass the NCLEX?

    I called the BON for the second time today (It's been two weeks since I took my exam and over ten weeks since I submitted my application) and they said it takes 10-15 days for NJ BON to receive the NCLEX results and another 10-15 days for a license number to be issued.

    Does this make sense at all? Why would it take they 10-15 days to receive the results when other states post names on their BON sites within a couple of days?

    How long did it take you to get a number once you passed the NCLEX? I thought my waiting was over...

    I actually graduated here in the States so I don't need to go through all that TOEFL and CES stuff.
    Yes you can pay to register with Pearson without having the fingerprints first.

    Yea I heard NJ takes awhile. I recently graduated from a school in NJ but I applied for licensure in VA and so my license was up within 24 hrs after I took my NCLEX. I am now looking to also apply for license in NJ but everybody makes it seem like its going to take forever. But if you want your NCLEX results I believe NJ offers the 48 hour quick result with Pearson. You do have to pay $8. Hope this helps!
