NCLEX application -- HELP!

  1. ALL required documents were sent to CA BON last June 2006.

    Do I get a receipt or some sort notice that they have received my application?

    Is there an email address where I can reach them aside from calling them?

    Getting worried since its been two months now, just wanna make sure
    my papers are in process.

    unfortunately I believe CA BON takes more than 2 months to process your stuff. I am sure I have read on here a time scale of 6 months

    Time period for processing for CA BRN is 4-6 mos and there are some instances that it took 8 mos.

    There's an e-mail add. there located in their website for queries re: what you want. I believe its brn_licensing@dca.ca.gov. Pls. double check it on their website it's in their somewhere. They usually reply w/in 1-2 weeks. Don't forget to give them your full name and politely request them your queries about your status. They usually reply like "We received your application in the month of ... and we are currently still processing the month of..."

    Goodluck.

    If you're out of the U.S. they usually don't give confirmation that they received your application. You have to e-mail them. Already provided their contact e-mail above for your queries w/c is located in their website.

    If they take the time to send verification out to each applicant, then that will slow down processing of the applications. If you stop to think about that, then the length of wait will be even longer.

    Most of you forget that CA does their own credentials verification. It is always much faster to apply to another state and then just endorse to CA. You also will need to wait for about one month to find out your score, you will not see it posted. And they usually stresses nurses out more.

    I am still waiting for my Ca NCLEX results...8 days now & counting....

    To the OP, I had the same predicament when I applied for Ca eligibility. I was not informed if they ever received my applications or if it was already being processed. But guess what, after four months, I received the letter of eligibility. But you must be concerned though, I have a friend who have not received hers and it's almost a year already. I think she might be missing some docs, thus the delay. If you're sure that your docs are complete, then you must not worry. After four months, you may call Ca BON to verify the status of your application.
