I recieved my Missouri RN license originally and then applied for a PA license a couple of months after. After submitting my application, transcript, and payment, I recieved the temporary permit within a couple of weeks. Then I continued checking the PA BON website to see when I was officially a RN in PA. I was surprised to see that happened within 8 days of getting my temporary permit and then a few days later I got the paper license in the mail. It took under a month for everything to happen.
