Hello, I took my NCLEX on 12/16 and passed (via Quickresults) I mailed in my fingerprint card on 12/28....how long will it take to issue a license, and is there any temporary license I can get in the meantime (considering the hold up is most likely with the fingerprint and background check). I am new to NC and am having an extremely hard time finding new grad openings. I finally have interview tomorrow and really need to know how long it will be before I have my actual license. I am in the Raleigh area. The NCBON has been of no help to me. Thanks!!!!
