NCLEX and licensure question...how long did it take

  1. for you to see that you were an RN on the NC BON website? I know it takes a few weeks to receive an actual license in the mail, but I'm just curious how long it took for you to realize you passed the exam. I've heard a few people say they knew the next day as to whether they passed or not. Does anyone have anymore experiences? TIA!

    The NCBON updates this site every Tuesday and Fridays. So, your information should appear on the Tuesday or Friday following your test (during the holiday season, it may take longer). However, the extensive criminal background check may take a week or more for some candidates. Even if you passed the NCLEX, your number will not appear on the website until you clear the background check.
