After passing NCLEX, how long until you got your license

  1. in the mail? I forget how long it was for my LPN but I'm itching to get my RN one because I have interviews coming up...

    They can verify your license online so I doubt it would be too much to have license in hand

    You don't need your license for interviews. Prospective employers can verify your license by phone, fax, or online.

    See.. that is what I thought but my current place of employment won't pay me as a RN until I have my license in my hand even though I have a license # on the BON website. I think they are going to hear from me...

    That is so wrong. My employer verified online (first my GN, now my RN) and I got my raise effective the date I became a GN. I work at a hospital. What state do you live in? They may just be giving you the run around!! Good luck.
