It looked like you needed paperwork (a letter from your place of employment) to get a temporary license. It took me about 30 days to get my DC license (I did call them after about 30 days, they had all of the paperwork done and my license was active the next day).

PDF File on the BON site linked from "Application Instructions*":

http://hpla.doh.dc.gov/hpla/frames.asp?doc=/hpla/lib/hpla/nursing/instructions_nursing3.pdf

In there it gives some information about temporary licenses. Says you need to apply in person, and have some paperwork. I'd give them a call for clarification if you need.

I'd call the BON tomorrow and ask, and call the hospital to see if they're willing to sign the Supervised Practice form. Also, check how long you expect to wait for your license (when did you apply?)

Got one recently. In order to get a temporary license, you need to first apply for regular license. Here's the catch-in order to apply for the temporary license, your application for regular license needs to be in the DOH system and the federal background check completed. It took 2 weeks before my application was in the system (even though I hand delivered it at the DOH and got finger printed at the same time) and I could apply for a temporary license. DOH said they have a bunch of applications so it's taking longer to process them. Depending on your state (if you are doing this through endorsement), the state background check might come in fairly quickly and you would not need a temporary license.
