*still Waiting...*

  1. Will my ATT ever come?
    I sent in my paperwork on the 25th...
    should have heard by now, I would think...
    I called today and was told that the nursing supervisor hasn't looked at my application yet...
    maybe today or Monday...
    Then, if I am deemed "eligible", she will send my paperwork BACK to the first place it was, and they will send me an ATT...
    might take 10-11 working days...
    at this rate, I'll be graduated ASN before I can take my LPN boards!

    Will keep you all updated.....

    yup know where you are coming from...I am still waiting too. Ours were sent in on the 25th or 26th. But with NCLEX changing their testing sites we have to get the test sched. by Aug 15th or we were told we would have to wait until October to test! This is crazy! I am going nuts sitting home all day! I am actaully going to take a CNA job just to get some money come in before I go on vacation in September...they promised me they would move me up to a LPN as soon as I passed my test...*sigh*

    Julie, I know its frustrating. It took 3 wks for my ATT. However, once mine came the wait was over. I called and signed up for the NCLEX within the next week or so. Good luck on your boards. Once the ATT comes, you will take your boards, and then you'll be waiting for your results. Wish you the best of Luck!!!!!!!!!!

    Thanks for your encouragement everyone...
    I've just decided to dive deep into work and forget about it...maybe the anticipation of my next check (got a $2 raise) will ease the pain...

    I have come to the conclusion that I will have to wait to test until October. I don't believe the ATT will come before Wednesday. If it does, it will be a freaking miracle. I called up there and they said I was still pending eligibility with the nursing board. How long can that take?? They've supposedly had our applications since what?? May, June?? Plenty of time to do what they've got to do.
    Got a job...med/surg...7p-7a.....5 minutes from home....had police/background check ran last week, had drug screen and blood work done yesterday, supposed to have orientation on the 26th. And I'm not going to be able to go to work for them. I have to go in there next Friday and tell them I can't come to work until Oct. I don't think they will hold this job till October and I don't blame them. But then again, the job has been empty for some time now. So maybe.......This bites!
    Maybe they'll let me work as an aide till I test? At least I'll be able to get a feel for the place before making any commitments.
    WHO KNOWS?????
    Julie, looks like we're all in the same boat!!

    Just a little PS!! I think they picked a crappy time of year to change testing vendors!!! WINTER!! How many schools graduate this time of year??? WINTER is the time to make big changes like this! Maybe January????? LOL!

    ugh...this is giving me panic attacks! Seriously I had one Saturday and I get SOB when I think of it! It so pi**es me off that it is taking this long. That is why we sent in all that crap in June...so we would only have to wait 2 weeks...they have had almost 2 months to reveiw our applications so this is just crazy! I am calling Ms Horr in the AM and then the BON and see whats up.
    You know that guy I know that went to PN school in Ironton? He graduated 4 weeks before us...they sent all their stuff in the week WE graduated and he is testing TOMORROW!
