License endorsement-how long does it take?

  1. I applied for an RN license endorsement recently and am wondering how long it will take for BON to process it?
    Should I call the BON of the state I applied and find out the status of my license?

    Thank you for your help.

    It depends on a number of factors, and can take anywhere from a few weeks to several months. Make certain you provided all the required information, as any deficiencies will only prolong the process. Also, check to see if the state of your original licensure requires a fee to process your endorsement information. Most do, and won't process your information until it's paid.

    If everything has been properly submitted, and you are waiting to start employment in your new state, it may be possible to apply for a temporary work permit.

    Good luck!
