I sent in my application to the state about 3 weeks ago and haven't heard anything back yet! Just wanted to know how long it took you to get your ATT and stuff (that is, if you sent it in).
I'm debating if I should call or email to check the status of my application. I searched for my name in the database and it wasn't in there.
Hello, I recently went through the same thing, but have since passed my NCLEX!! I'm finally a R.N.!!
What a relief it is!! Anyways, I waited a long time for my ATT as well as for my Temporary Permit, which the check had been cashed almost a month before they posted it. I was getting a little frustrated as I had already been hired as a Graduate Nurse (G.N.) and my pay was about to be effected. I ended up calling the DRL quite frequently and I was checking the website daily. This can be frustrating as you have to sit through a long phone message, only to leave a message. But they are required to return your phone call within 2 business days....and do not be afraid to ask for the manager if your questions/concerns are not being addressed in a timely manner.
Apparently the main person who does the majority of the processing of applications was on medical leave, so everything was getting processed very slowly and in little bits at a time, including my own.
The best advice I can give you is to keep calling, especially if you paid for a temporary permit. They do have deadlines they should be meeting. I eventually spoke with a Kathy, who I was told was the manager. Shortly after speaking with her, everything went through much quicker.
Once I passed the NCLEX (I took it Feb. 22nd), the DRL website did not post my license until Mar. 5th. I was able to gain the results after 2 days (I took it on a Friday at 2pm and got the results Sun at around 2am). I paid $7.95 to the PEARSON VUE Website....and it was well worth it!!
Best of luck to you!! Feel free to message me if you have any other questions.
