How soon did you guys get your card in the mail after passing NCLEX? I took mine 12/10, passed and sent out the money order for the official card license the following week. Ugh, I'm so anxious to go back to work. I am NOT used to having this much free time on my hands!

I'm in KY, we no longer get a physical card, just an email with our license number.

SC no longer sends them out either. I didn't get an email, just checked the BON website and saw my name and license number :)

It took 10 days, in my case. I am from California. I've seen my name on the board's website first before I got the hard card though. :)

I'm from California too! It's almost three weeks since I took the exam. And two weeks since I sent out the money order. I'm assuming with the holidays and New Years it will take a little longer to process.

I've been told you don't have to pay anything to get your license card but when I had received my letter saying I passed it asked for money in order to receive my card =\

My name has yet to show on the Internet still :'(

Oh you from Cali too. License Fee is needed. I was shocked as well that we need to pay 150 for our licenses though we can't do anything about it because we need to pay for our License numbers to get processes. :) Once we pay, they give our license numbers.

Maybe because of the holiday season, the processing gets delayed. Maybe this week you'll receive it or if not, expect it by after new year. Once you see your name on the site, you're good to go :) You'll get the hard card by after a few days. :) Don't worry, it may take 3 to 4 weeks for them to process it, but if it goes beyond that span of time, you might as well call the Board for a follow up! :)

ADD:

I didn't notice your new post. Well congratulations! :) You got your license number now! :)
