CA BVNPT Enforcement delays, how long was your wait?Register Today!
This is a discussion on CA BVNPT Enforcement delays, how long was your wait? in Nursing Licensure With A Criminal History, part of Nursing Career Advice ... I took my NCLEX-PN exam on 1/14/2013 and received my letter stating I passed the NCLEX-PN on...by ddlvnv Feb 21I took my NCLEX-PN exam on 1/14/2013 and received my letter stating I passed the NCLEX-PN on 2/13/2013, "but the processing of my license application will be delayed until the BVNPT Enforcement Division has completed its review and evaluation". Would anyone be willing to share how long this process took if you recently experienced the same situation? I submitted all my documents twice, first with my application and a second time on 1/23/2013 because I had received a letter the day before I took my test that BVNPT needed additional information. Thanks, look forward to hearing from anyone else experiencing enforcement delays.

- Feb 21 by DeBerhamThe BVNPT is a bad joke. They are traditionally the slowest board to send out license information to requesting agencies when I file for reciprocity in other states. They also sat on my (and the other California resident's) application for 6 months post graduation. When I say sat on, the application sat on someone's desk because my school failed to stamp a page. Apparently calling the school or us was too difficult a task so there it sat. I lived in Sacramento so I was doing weekly trips to their office to see what was taking so long. Good luck
- Feb 23 by ddlvnvThanks for the input, I appreciate it. I wish I was a little closer to their office, but I have been checking any which way I can think of. I had left several voicemails without any response it just seems like its taking forever. We graduated in Aug 2012, received our Authorization to Test right before Christmas, and I tested on Jan 14th, so its going on six months now. I am trying to be patient since it is out of my control, I understand this additional delay with the background check is due to mistakes that I made when I was younger, but you think they could begin the background investigations when the applications are submitted? I came across and was reading some of the previous Board Meeting minutes and quarterly Executive Officer's reports that are posted on the BVNPT site for public viewing, I was amazed when I found the Enforcement Analyst assigned to my case under the section listing people who no longer work there, and she hasn't worked there since Nov. 2012. I just received my pass letter a couple weeks ago and they are still putting her name on things when she's been gone for 3 months. So I sent an email inquiring who is actually reviewing my case, if she is in fact no longer working in the department. I could not believe it, someone answered my email and in the same day! I am very thankful to the this employee who gave me updated info on my application process, but I am still very nervous. Even though I passed the NCLEX-PN, I do not know if the BVNPT will grant me my license. I guess I continue to wait and work on my prerequisites for the LVN-RN Bridge program, hopefully I find out before applications are due for the next semester. Anyway, thanks for sharing and thanks for reading. Much appreciated!
