How long before you took NCLEX

  1. how long from the time that you sent in your paperwork to the board of nursing until you were able to take the nclex? i live in ohio and it has been 7wks since i sent in all of my paperwork and fees and i still haven't heard from anyone. only 2 people from my school has received their auth to test and it took a total of 9wks before they got their att. i guess they are really backed up, i cannot even get thru to them by phone or email in order to check the status. i am getting really irritated because i have a job that is pending me getting my license. just wondering if everyone else has this problem or if it is just ohio?

    The KY Board of Nursing was on the ball. VERY quick turnaround from submission of paperwork to my ATT.

    I think it's an Ohio BON incompetence thing.

    Last year I applied online and recieved confirmation on June 13th, my ATT June 25th and took boards July 14th, this is in FL, however this year the board had some issues and lost the records for the class that just graduated so their behind the game already

    My school sent my classes paperwork in Apr 25th then our transcripts May 11th. Got my ATT May 19th and tested on May 26. I live in GA. Sorry you're having to wait, I know it can be very frustrating. For some reason about 8 of my classmates still don't even have their ATT even though our paperwork were sent off at the same times. Here I've been a RN officially for almost a month come July 3rd (I was the first from my class to test) and some of my classmates don;t have an ATT yet.

    Kadel ~ when were you able to get thru to the board? I have tried for days straight and now on their website it says that the phones are down?! When did you send in your application? I sent mine on 5/15! This is absolutely ridiculous!!!

    I'm in AR and I registered with pearson vue on May 7, 2009, graduated on the 8th, got ATT on the 21st, took boards June 8, 2009, and got my license in the mail June 11, 2009. Everyone in my class has not received thier ATT though because some didn't send them in as fast. The BON had visited our school prior to our graduation, and told us since most schools were graduating within days of each other it was best to get them in asap because first come, first serve.

    I live in Michigan. Graduated April 25, took NCLEX on May 21. I think I was one of the lucky ones. Some of my classmates are just now getting their ATT. Sheesh!

    Hi there! I live in NC. My fingerprint and background check information was sent in to the BON May 12th. I got my ATT May 16th, and tested May 25th. I didn't want to wait too long. I start my new job on 7-20 and wanted another chance to take the test if the 'unthinkable' happened!!
    Good luck to everyone!!
