Michigan RN licensure timeframe


I passed the NCLEX RN on 6/9, still dont have a license posted online.

Can anyone from MI shed some light on when they received their license after passing?

i called the board who said they haven't received my results from PV. I call PV and they say they sent them on the 11th. Pretty frustrating since I am on a timeframe here as I have a job starting soon

My license showed up 30 hours after I took the test. I took it back in may. However, my friend took it 3 weeks ago. His license was posted almost 2 weeks after.

Thanks. I have 2 classmates who took it last week on Wednesday and had licenses within 2 days. I took it Tuesday the 9th and still waiting. Makes me feel like they lost my file or something.

Apparently, there is only one person who sits somewhere in Lansing and is responsible for manually entering all the data in LARA database, among other things.

I found it out in summer 2013 when there was a significant delay in posting new licensed RNs affecting me and some of my classmates. Something happened with this worker right at the time when Spring/Summer new grads were taking and passing NCLEX en masse, with resulting delays up to couple of weeks.
