Finally got my name posted on the IDFPR website. YAY! Also, got the email that they will not send out paper licenses (I was always checking the mail box LOL).

I'm sort of sad and wanted to keep it as a keep sake (sort of my trophy for passing the NCLEX). Yet, I understand why IL did it because it saves state money with printing, paper, and postage and it can help prevent identity theft.

Anyways, just wanted to let the word out, especially towards people who did not know a bout and are expecting a paper license in the mail.

Ugh I know. I got licensed early Feb and was waiting for my license in the mail and then got an email this week telling me they weren't sending it, and had to pay another $80 to renew my license when i was just licensed two months ago!! Sigh.

How long after passing the NCLEX did they send the letter? How long after sending the check did it take for your license to be up on the site? Just passed and I've been anxiously waiting.

It took me a little less than a month that I received the email.

You can print a paper license from the website. My employer wants a copy of the paper license so that's what I did.
