IL License Status pending....

  1. Hi everyone!

    I was just wondering if anyone had ever had the same situation I have in regards to the status of my license. I passed the NCLEX for IL last Jan. 12. I then sent in my payment of $50 a week after. Now, im waiting for my license, however when I checked my license status online this is what I saw..


    New Initial Application Enter/Check Education History Pending

    New Initial Application Administrative/Board Review Pending

    New Initial Application FBI Check Failed/Rejected 07/11/2017
    New Initial Application State Check Failed/Rejected 07/11/2017


    This was my second time that I took the exam. The first time was on July 10, 2017. I was just wondering what these things means..and if I have to do anything.

    Hoping someone can enlighten me!

    Did you reapply to Continental for your second NCLEX?

    I guess I would call Continental to see if you can get it straightened out. Could be an artifact of their computer system, since it looks like it may have been generated after your first nclex attempt. If you received your official pass letter, you could continue checking the BON website for you license?

    Thank you for replying, and to answer your questions...Yes, I did reapply again through Continental Testing for my second attempt for the NCLEX. And I did received my pass letter 10 days after I took the NCLEX the second time I took it.

    So it would be Continental that I should contact then..? I contacted IDFPR last week and they said they never received anything from my fingerprint scan, which is weird because how could have I taken my exam?

    I have been checking everyday the BON website, but still no update on my situation..

    I think licenses can take a while to post. I would say call IDFPR since they issue the actual licenses? Honestly I called them three times to request fingerprint cards (which never arrived) and each time I felt like I was talking to a very incompetent person. I'd suggest calling and bugging them until you get someone that can help you. If you're in Chicago or Springfield maybe you could go in person? The squeaky nurse gets the license.

    I'm sorry that I can't really help because I have the experience. I felt bad that no one answered your question.

    Good luck!
