I graduated nursing school in May and took the NCLEX June 21st and received my pass letter a week ago. Does this mean my license is Approved or can it be denied? I looked online for Illinois nursing website and it all says pending but under verify fees and FBI check it says rejected/ fail? What does that mean? Would I have received something in the mail stating I was denied my license or is it an error? When would you know if you were denied your license?
