PA nursing license

  1. 0 Hey I had a question for anyone who can answer me. I applied for a PA nursing license and a TPP on August 20th. I still have not gotten my TPP and I am supposed to start work on Monday. I called the Board of nursing and they said that they haven't even processed my application yet and that it could take up to four more weeks! I am stressing out because I just moved to the area and want to start work, not to mention I am in desperate need of some money! Has anyone been in a similar situation?

    Yikes!!! I just finished school on Sept. 5th and sent my info. off right away, I still haven't gotten my TPP yet either and I start work Monday too!! Our nursing director said it would probably only take 2 weeks because it is not the usual time of year that people are applying, yeah right!!

    My information was sent on May 9th and my permit was mailed May 28th. It was the busy time of year and took 3 weeks.
    Good luck to you Larlar!!!

    I am worried because I think that I will have to push my start date back until I get the I correct? My RN license that I have now is for Delaware so without my TPP I don't think I can start work as an RN...does anyone know if i could work as a graduate nurse until my TPP comes in? I am going to call PA hosp. tomorrow and see what they say, but was just wondering if anyone knew! Good luck to everyone!

    Hi Laurie-
    check the PA's website for vertification

    I am listed in it but have not gotten the paper version- as long as I have that number I was told I am fine. I applied Sept 8th. Hope that helps!

    Just found out today I'm listed too, I just haven't gotten it in the mail yet. You should be fine Laurie, but I'd call your employer and let them know what is going on.

    Well my TPP didn't come and I had to reschedule my start date to Oct. 20th. Boo. Oh well I guess I should enjoy these 2 more weeks off while I have them! Good luck to everyone!
