How long after NCLEX-PN should your name appear on the CA BVNPT license search?

Posted

On the bvnpt website there's a search section to type your name in and find if that name is licensed.

How long does it usually take for it to show up? Before your results get to you in the mail?

You will not see your name on the BVNPT website until you have received your results via mail and sent in your payment and they have processed your payment

silverdragon - just out of curiosity, how much more do we have to send to BVNPT?

my class just graduated and our applications are being sent in this week. we got hit with the increased app fee (it's $150!). are you saying we have to pay a separate fee for the license as well?

According to BVNPT you pay $150 for exam applicants and $150 for initial 2 year license

20. Fees- I already paid $150.00 to the Board. Do I have to pay the NCSBN $200.00 to take the NCLEX-PN also?

Yes, there are two fees involved each time you take the exam.

The $150 fee is for the application review and processing.

The $200 fee which goes directly to the NCSBN is for the examination.

An initial licensing fee will be charged to obtain the license after successful completion of the licensing examination.

In CA waiting on state employees is a money-intensive endeavor.

yowzaaa! $150 more plus the $200 exam fee?

looks like that cash that came in for graduation is going to testing (and hopefully) licensing fees.
