Hello, 

I was wondering if anyone knows the current timeframe it takes for a state to issue a license?

Thanks

My classmates got their license 24 hrs after NCLEX. I had to wait until Monday because I took it on a Friday. Some states, like California, may take weeks to get your license.

What state are you in? Some take a notoriously long time. What may be true in other states may not be true for the state you are in.

I'm from MA, and it took about 2 weeks for them to post my license. I passed my NCLEX July 9. They emailed me/posted my license for look up on July 22

I took my exam on a Tuesday, and got my license 2 days later. I got it in the mail many weeks later. I am from PA if that helps
