Hi PA RNs,

im taking my nclex on Monday (finally, it took forever to receive my ATT!) and was wondering how long it took after passing the NCLEX for the license to be issued and posted on PALS? need to start a job soon so I want to be prepared if I'm gonna have to be on the phone every day trying to get a hold of the BON like I had to do to get my ATT. Thanks!

Unless things have changed, Pennsylvania is fast during the early part of the business week. So you should see your results within 24 to 48 hours after taking your boards.

I was listed on the BON website 1-2 days after I took the NCLEX. I don't remember exactly but it was fast. The Pearson Vue trick worked the day I took the test and a classmate who had been at the testing center the same time as I was, who'd gone out drinking with me afterwards because we all left thinking we'd failed, texted me to say he'd looked up our names and we were there.
