    I'm sure you've realized by now that CA will not send directly to you, they sent mine to IL BON. Did you get your temp license yet? I'm still waiting. That IDPR website is horrible, their phone lines are even worse. I think it's completely unprofessional to have busy signals!! I haven't been able to get through to ask if they are processing my application! At this rate, I'll never be able to work! sniffle

    They received my application on August 29th and I checked online on September 14th and it said I had an active license expiring May 2008. I received my Temp license in the mail on September 19th. I think it went so fast because I did the Livescan fingerprinting instead of fingerprint cards. I agree, the phones and website for Illionois BON are horrible. When I called, I just kept dialing the number over and over again for about 2-3 minutes and I finally got through. Good Luck!

    I live in southern Illinois and close to St. Louis, MO. Some MO nurses applied for endorsment and stated that it was a really long process. I went to school in Missouri and applied for an Illinois license when taking my boards for this specific reason. I wanted to work in Illinois and found out it wouldn't take as long to apply for endorsment should I choose to work in Missouri. The reason why it takes so...long in Illinois? I was told that they are just plain slow and do alot of the processing by hand. Wether it's true or not, I don't know.
