I recently took and passed my boards (last Monday). I was anticipating seeing my license number pop up on the state BON (NJ) website however it's been days and it hasn't. Many of my classmates and co workers had theirs within a day or even hours of passing the NCLEX. My question is how long does it typically take? I had all my documentation, background check and application completed prior to this. I know getting the physical license will take some time but I would at least have thought my number would be up. I wouldn't be an anxious about it as I am but I have a job waiting for me and I need my RN license # to begin. I feel like I'm hanging out in purgatory continuing to work as a patient care tech. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
