pa state board of nursing

  1. Has anyone else had a tough time getting in touch with someone at the state board. I have called at least 5 times and have yet to talk to the right person. I get transferred to voicemails that are full, or transferred to voicemails that arent the right person. It's rough. All I wanted was to find out if my school sent in everything for me to get a temporary practice permit. I recieved an ATT and scheduled nclex but still no practice permit. I know I paid for it. Thanks for hearing my rant.

    i know i went to the state board of nursing site last year on my nclex exam and used the link st-nurse@state.pa.us</strong>. i know when i posted an email to this address they responded relatively quickly. i just posted a question on a different matter today on scope of practice and they responded with in a 1/2 hour. try this if you can't get through on the phone.

    good luck,

    i've also used the above link, and the sbon has always replied to me in a timely fashion. just remember that i believe they only work to 1700, keep this in mind when sending your email. good luck and welcome to pa

    Why don't you just search your name here http://www.licensepa.state.pa.us/default.asp?bpoaNav=|
    I put my own name in and it shows that I had a temp permit before my real license.
    Worth a try.
