Initial CRNP License in Pennsylvania
- 0Apr 2, '12 by ghillbert, MSN, NP GuideI am graduating end of April from my ACNP program and trying to work out a best/worst case scenario for when I'll be able to start an NP job. Does anyone have recent experience with how long it took to receive their national certification number from AACN? Or from ANCC for that matter, I guess - I don't much mind which board exam I take.
What about how long it took to receive your CRNP license number from the State Board of Nursing (PA) once you sent in your application??
- 0Apr 2, '12 by medicrnohioGraduated early August 2011
Took boards AANP October 31, 2011
CRNP Licensure from PA Board of Nursing November 30, 2011
Prescriptive Authority in December 2011
Part of the issue is that Pitt takes awhile to issue transcripts. Did they say when they will have transcripts ready? We needed transcripts with degree posted to apply for boards.

It truly does take them about 6 weeks or so to issue the final transcript at Pitt. That being said, you will likely be able to accept a position that will be contingent upon you passing boards. I started my position before passing boards and wasn't really even able to function until January when all my credentialing was finished.

I just took the AANP and have my prelim "passed" but I am wondering how long it takes from AANP sending my certification verification to the actual date of getting a CRNP license number. Please keep me posted on your timeline, if you don't mind. This is very helpful info!
P.S. and good luck on your exam if you haven't taken it as yet!

5/24: Transcript received
5/24: Sent ANCC application
5/29: Board received application
6/13: Authorization to test email received
6/26: Exam scheduled!!
I did not expect the authorization so soon and I hope I've left myself enough time to study (2 weeks) - but I figure if I don't know it now I never will and the longer I wait after graduating the worse it will probably be. Wish me luck!
Juli - congrats on passing your exam! I also wonder how long the license part will take.. can't wait!
