How long does it take for endorsement to an Ohio License?

Posted

I currently live in Indiana, and took my NCLEX for licensure in Indiana. I had just decided to move to Ohio two weeks before graduation, and had already filed all my paperwork for Indiana, and figured I would transfer my license once I passed the NCLEX. I passed my NCLEX, and now have my IN license. All of my paper work has been sent in, and my license for Ohio is listed as pending on the website. Any idea how long it takes for them to verify licensure? Only reason I'm asking, is because I have a job already in Ohio, and I'm basically waiting to start until my Ohio license is active.

Another random question...They spelled my middle name wrong on the website. Does that matter at all, or does only first and last name really matter?

Thanks! :)

You need to correct your middle name. I know OBN has been backed up on several things, so would call, get your middle name fixed and ask about the timeframe.
