Anyone know how long it takes to get your Illinois license? I'm planning on traveling there at the end of July, but don't have my contract lined up yet, and I don't want to apply until I know FOR SURE that I'm going there.

Apply early! While Nursys is actually in Illinois, Illinois is not part of Nursys. Right now I am waiting for verification of my license from Illinois as it is my original state of licensure, and it's going on four weeks now. I did call them and was told that right now it is taking anywhere from 3 to 5 weeks! Good luck.

I don't know where you are, but my advice on getting your fingerprints done is to find a place in IL that does the livescan. I received my license from IL in 3 weeks, would have been about 2 if I had done livescan from the begining. Also, I went to RN school in IL, so I don't know if that sped up the process or not
