    Didnt know I had to send off my money and pay for nursing license before I can get them. Could that be part of the reason why I havent heard from the BON yet? So I mailed off my payment today. I had actually sent my letter off without paying for it two weeks ago explaining what had happened. So Should I send the letter off again today although I just sent the payment off today??? Any suggestions??

    IMO it could not hurt to send the letter again, and include a little explanation of why your payment was delayed.

    Best of luck.

    Called and checked on my application status and the are in the process of reviewing it.. hopefully they come to a decision quite soon and grant me my license... and finally all of my anxiety will be relieved !! Praying everyday ! staying positive Lord Lnows..

    So after constantly calling the BON of IL about my license looks like im going to have to get my juvenile record expunged ! Ive been waitng for about 2 months ... So filing a petition tomorrow! Getting my license very soon.
