I have a question. So I just submitted my application for licensure along with the $200, passport photo, etc. Now I'm just waiting for them to send me the stuff for fingerprinting and my school to send the boards my letter of completion. My question(s) is..how long does it take for them to send fingerprinting info? Do they usually wait to get the letter of completion? And was I suppose to do anything on pearsonvue to register or was sending the application just enough?
I'm still waiting. BON called me last week and said they had never received the letter of completion from my school, even though I KNOW they mailed it in April.
I received the fingerprinting info about a month after sending in my application. I scheduled my appointment online and the earliest they could do it was three weeks from when I scheduled. I HIGHLY recommend calling the fingerprinting location and asking if they can do it sooner. Appointment times are every 6-8 minutes, but the whole process only took about 2. You don't need to have your fingerprints done in order to get your ATT.
They do need the letter of completion to give you the ATT, and that seems to be the longest part of the process.
I suggest you register with pearsonvue and submit your payment for the NCLEX. It's 200 dollars up front, but then it's done and you don't have to worry about it. Pearsonvue will email you with your ATT after the board of nursing approves you. Otherwise you may have to wait an additional 24 hours for the pearsonvue registration to verified before you can schedule the exam.
