At first I was told about 20 business days.....which has come and gone....
Well it's been 30 business days since I passed NCLEX (7/25 got results 7/27) and still no license - background check/fingerprinting were completed and the website shows them as completed (7/30).....just waiting on my license number! I called today and a really nice call center employee said "Wow, that is long! I'll send the processing dept an e-mail" and he typed something up and read it back to me (supposedly - LOL).
I understand that this time of year the NJ BON is slammed with new applications....but really?!?!? Everything is electronic!!! Pearson Vue with NCLEX results and the fingerprinting is even done electronically now. It's not like they're searching through papers!!
Keeping my fingers crossed that I'll have my license number within the next week!!!
