Got my ATT: Is this a good/bad sign?

Hello all! I am looking for advice. 

 

So...after graduation, I applied directly to WA state for my nursing license from out-of-state. I disclosed my 10-year drug possession felony & misdemeanor charges, all of which were dismissed via deferred entry of judgment, in my application. I also included a lengthy letter of explanation, certified court documents, police reports, probation reports, rehab documents, substance abuse/mental evaluation, and letters of recommendation. After 4 weeks of waiting anxiously, my name appeared on provider credential search and then a week later... I unexpectedly received my ATT and I signed up for NCLEX.

 

But now, I feel confused because I got my ATT before I submitted my fingerprints. I am worried that it's a conditional approval pending my fingerprint results, even though WA didn't say that. However, I have nothing to hide-- I've been upfront and honest about my charges in my application. I also did my own livescan to confirm. Maybe I'm just overreacting because I've been worrying about this for so long that perhaps I think it's too good to be true. 

 

What do you all think -- is it a good sign that WA is allowing me to take NCLEX? 

 

Thank you in advance 🙂

What good is it doing you to catastrophize the matter and make yourself sick over it? They will do what they will do. When you get your instructions, follow them to a T and rest assured you have done what you can. Then you will be successful or you will have more to do. Worrying about it at this point is not going to change the outcome.

Thank you for this - I did exactly what you advised! I passed NCLEX and was issued a temp practice permit and I'm now just waiting for my permanent license.
