Do you get your license number faster if you pay your license fee in person?


Hello, I got my results of my nclex-pn on Monday 8/18. I had applied for a job a day after, got a call and said I couldn't get an interview till I was able to be looked up on the board of nurses.

So I was wondering if it's faster to get your license number if I went to Sac to the BVNPT office and payed my license fee? Or will it still take 3-4 weeks? :arghh:

Specializes in Complex pediatrics turned LTC/subacute geriatrics. Has 11 years experience.

Probably not as BVNPT is 4-6 weeks back logged processing initial license paperwork. It's a two step process. Congrats on passing and the job offer though
