How long until my license arrives?

  1. Hello all, I just passed the NCLEX-RN, took the test on Tuesday and found out that I passed on Thursday. My question is, how long does it take to actually get my license in the mail and see my name on the web site? Any know?
    Thanks,
    Shannon~

    Yes, I heard you can check the NYS licensing website and your name and license # will be there in about 2-3 days---which you can then list right on your resume--CONGRATULATIONS! I hope to follow in your footsteps shortly Just waiting for my authorization to test (graduated Aug. 31)....

    I called and they said 4-6 weeks. Sadly I may not get a job offer because of the time it will take them to issue
