    Thank you for the info! Massachusetts board of nursing severely botched my name, didn't see it until my license came in the mail. This is delaying my assignment in MA, so looks like I'll be trying for it in the Spring! Thanks to the idget who misspelled my name! It was an error on their end- they even pulled out my original application to make sure it wasn't me who misspelled it (yeah, after 30 years, I forgot how to spell my name! haha).
    Who did you contact to correct the error? I'm in Illinois, but I'm having trouble finding out how get my name corrected.

    I contacted the Massachusetts board of nursing directly. They transferred me to the appropriate people, and I was informed to send in my misspelled license and they would correct it. After exactly 21 days (that's the amount of time they say it will take to get to you, and that's how long mine took), I got it in the mail and overnighted it back to the address they gave me. It was corrected with the MA board of nursing within 24 hours, and I now have a valid license.

    I'm not sure about the contact information for Illinois board of nursing, but I found MA board of nursing contact info on their website. I just did a search for their nursing board and it was the first link on the search results.

    I hope that's a helpful answer.
