Waiting for BVNPT to make a decision

  1. 0
    I took and passed the NCLEX-PN Aug 2010. Got a letter stating my application will go to enforcement two weeeks after I took the test and got my letter that I passed three weeks after the test. I am currently still waiting for the BVNPT to make a decision on my application. My offense was 14 or 15 years ago misdemenour petty theft and bad checks. I was young and dumb. Anyway I am still waiting to hear from them and I have called, emailed and all I keep getting is all cases are different and we can't give you a time. I was told up to 60 days then several more weeks, and it is just very frustrating. I really need to start looking for a job. Why is the board so secretive and allusive about this process. I understand each case is different but if your working on my case can't you speak on my case. I am also told they are understaffed and are very busy, I get that too but I just can't see why its taking this long I did a background check to get into nursing school. I did live scan to take the test and I wrote about what my violations were. What more do they need. I just would like to know one way or the other so I can move onward with my life. This really sucks. Anyone else out there in my situation or have some advise?

    I actually got a letter from enforcement before I got my letter that I had passed the test. I am still waiting for a letter saying everything is clear and I can pay to get my license. I am on week 11 from the day I took my test.

    I finished school February 2010. My application was mailed out Feb. 12, 2010. I took my NCLEX the end of May. I finally received the letter I passed seven weeks later in July BUT it stated my application was pending due to my petty theft conviction 15 years ago. After many phone calls, I finally received a letter October 28th stating I was DENIED! Needless to say I was devastated. I am now in the process of appeals which can take up to a year from what I am told. The lawyer I contacted assured me that I would be granted my license after the appeals process but at this point I am feeling hopeless. I hope you get an answer soon and are given your license.

    Wow I'm sorry to hear that...did it say why you were denied? I would figure that they will grant you the license since it was 15 yrs ago...

    wow that really makes me scared. I have so much riding on this whole thing if they deny me well I don't know. My situation is similar did they give you any reason or just a denial?

    I have been waiting as well. Got a letter from bvnpt set. 2010 stating I passed nclex but is pending for further investigation on my case, ticket for underage drinking 8 years ago. Just called my tech. this morning and she said my license is in the final process and to call at the end of the month, so much waiting!
    I would be so ****** off if denied because a classmate with a DUI already received her license! I think it's **** **** that someone with a DUI for can get their license before someone for a ticket for underage drinking, damn bottle 3/4 full.....

    Wow, that is devastating! I am so sorry. I may have missed something in your prior post, but did you notify the board that you had a misdemeanor/felony before appying for the nclex? Just curious and hope you get a license after the appeals process. Good luck!
