Hi I’m Tierra a new RN to Las Vegas area. My temporary license recently expired and I am only waiting for my fingerprints (Livescan done in NV) to clear.. they were taken on March 20th. I have a job offer with an hospital here and want to know how long was the wait for electronic fingerprints to post on your nursing portal? Is it really STILL 2-4 months for electronic fingerprints?

My experience is no. I have been licensed in the state for several years, and we have to submit fingerprints every five years with license renewal. I just turned mine in. I went to a place that submits fingerprints electronically, and my renewed license was posted a week or so after I sent the paperwork to the NSBON in Reno.

Yours is apparently by endorsement, so it may take a little longer. When I did my endorsement license, I submitted my fingerprints immediately upon arrival in Las Vegas, and I was within about a week of my temp running out when I got my permanent license. We didn't have the electronic option back then.
