NYS BON very unhelpful-lic question

  1. 0 I called the BON today b/c i took the boards 4 weeks ago but my lic wasn't posted yet. my conversation went like this

    guy: BON
    me: hi i'd like to check the status of my license please
    guy: RN or LPN
    me: RN
    guy: SS#?
    me: 123-45-6789
    guy: abiklags?
    me: yes, thanx
    guy: hhhmmm OK. i see we have a lot of your stuff here
    me: ok, any idea when my lic will be available?
    guy: no, call back tues or wed of next week
    me: uumm ok. can you tell me if there is a problem that is holding it up?
    guy: no call back tues or wed of next week
    me: ok thanx
    CLICK

    I took the boards june 29. I had no problems getting my ATT or anything wrong with my paper work. the rest of my friends waited about 2.5 weeks or less so why is mine (same school) taking longer? i'm nervous but is there a reason to be nervous?

    No don't be nervous. I took the boards on July 2 and didn't get my lic. # until the 20th. And that was after calling 5 times. I called twice last friday and spoke to the same woman, (who had an attitude both times) but my number was up later on that day. Just harrass them. dial extension 280 so you can avoid that guy. (I spoke to him too, lol)

    ETA: Two friends that i went to school with took the boards after me but received their #'s before me. That is what sent me into full harrass mode, lol.

    ya I may have spoken to that lady last friday too. she said it would be up sometime this week but this week is over. got the guy today on the 280 extension so not helpful. and ppl who took it after me also go it up before me which is SO unfair!

    did they tell you why it was taking so long?

    They told me it was because a lot of people are taking the NCLEX and they have been overwhelmed. The first 3 times I called, they told me "next week" each time...I guess you just have to get them to the point where they are tired of hearing from you. I told them I had a job prospect and that I would lose the position if I didn't get my license number. It's frustrating, but don't give up!

    4 weeks is more than enough time imho but then again, its the gov so they can do what they want. i guess i'll bug them tom to get my #...

    If you have a job lined up and u just passed the NCLEX, theres a form u can fill out from HR that can accelerate the licensure process. Ask ur HR and u can fill out the form and HR will file the from to NYS BON.

    got my Lic # yesterday after waiting 5 weeks for it. the person who took it 2 days before me waited 2 1/2 weeks and the person who took it a week after me got it 2.5 weeks later.

    so why was i the one who had to wait 5 weeks??????

    either way very happy i got the # so now i can apply for the NJ lic

    Does any one know how long it will take, if you are allready licensed in another state? I just sent my app in a few days ago.
