How long does it take Washington BON to post license?

Posted

Hi all!
I took my NCLEX today at 11am. It stopped at 75 question but I did not feel very good about it because around half of my questions were SATA!!!! ? How long did it take until your license was posted on the Washington provider credential search?? I heard it's sometimes posted the same day but mine is still pending!

Hiiiii.

Here's my timeline:

- 11/19: submitted app to WA

- 12/12: "pending" license on PCS

- 12/16: received ATT

- 12/27: took NCLEX & passed

- 1/3: active practice permit

- 1/16: active license

** I think mine took ~2 months because I was an out-of-state applicant & the fingerprint check took some time!

Best of luck ?

Thank you for this! I found out yesterday on the WA provider credential search that I passed as well because my status is now Active! On 1/3 when you got your active practice permit, was that mailed to you or what? I'm not really sure what my next step is now. Will I get an email soon that explains more?

Hey yes! I received my temp permit ~1 week later in the mail. I think they'll mail a hard copy of the permanent license. But you can also download a copy via Nursys after you register.

Hey there! I am applying for a Washington license via endorsement (CA RN currently) as an out-of-state applicant. I submitted my online application yesterday, how long did it take for them to mail you the ink fingerprint cards? Thank you so much!
