ok.. I applied in June of this year...and i FINALLY got my license issued Nov 2...application for endorsement...NJ is the WORSE state ever to deal with when it comes to applying for endorsement...they take FOREVER...please make sure you fill out everything and call them to ask if they received everything from finger printing cards to the check...I called and they claimed they never received my check in the package...they lied it was there and they misplaced it ...how do i know i received the original check back in my mail box "check was cancelled" ...So I had to send another check...when you do mail everything give it about three weeks for each step...you send in the original app...takes approx 3 weeks to process...then you send them the finger print cards...takes them three weeks to send to FBI and its now taking the FBI 3-6 weeks to process background check and report to NJSBON your clearance...make sure when they do send the finger print cards to the FBI you call the FBI to verify it has actually been received..B/c NJ will tell you they sent it and they didnt...get my frustration with NJ?...lol..send in everything as soon as possible follow up with phone calls...MANY phone calls...stay on top of them and hopefully you can get your License in three months...but on average now its anywhere from 3-6 months...
two reasons NJ is so slow:
1. We are very selective. We just don't let any Idiot nurse in our state. Only the highest grade of Idiot we let nurse in our State.
2. Affirmative action. The State of New Jersey does not decimated just because of Race, Creed or Color but also ability. We have a lot of Flying Monkeys working at the BON. you can not call them. No one answers because they don't know what a telephone is anyway. E-mail that's a good idea. They keep looking at the mail box out side of the building. I'm still waiting for and answer from an email I sent them two years ago When you sent your application in, that means that Bobo had to get off of his tire, signal for Zippy to stop dance for the organ grinder and process your license. It's hard for Zippy. He only knows two words,"Sun Good"
Zippy should send you your NJ License in four to eight weeks.
