How long did you wait for your ATT? To take NCELX? Results?

  1. Hi all,

    I just graduated from an LVN program on August 29, and I am impatiently (is there any other way?) waiting for my ATT. I was told to expect to receive it in 4 weeks and then depending on the testing location, to wait from 1 day to 2 weeks for my testing appointment, and then, of course, the additional 4 weeks to receive my results.

    My school sends in the applications, fees, etc in for us, and we were told that our board packets were mailed overnight on or around September 10. I will love you forever if you could tell me that my ATT will be in my mailbox tomorrow. OK, really, if everyone would just be willing to share their experience, I would grateful!

    If nothing else, it will give me something to read while I wait.

    I completed a Los Angeles-area LVN program on October 14, nearly 2 years ago. I received the ATT approximately 5 weeks later, on November 21. I took NCLEX-PN on December 28, then received the passing result on January 9. After mailing the $100 check to the BVNPT, I received a license number on January 20.

    In summary, the process from graduation to licensure took about 3 months.

    The ATT is not sent out by the board in CA, it is sent out by Pearson-Vue once they have received the authorization to release it as well as payment.

    Wait time is about one month from when the required documents are submitted, it goes from then; not the day that you actually graduated.

    Best of luck on your exam.
