NJ board of nursing

Hey,

Is anyone else having issues obtaining a license ? I have been waiting for months to receive my license number. I know we are in the middle of a pandemic but I have never dealt with such unprofessional and unorganized people on my life. Geez!

NJ has always been NOTORIOUSLY slow looooong before C19.

I know, not what you wanted to hear, but it's the truth.

I believe it. It’s awful. A government agency they should be ashamed of themselves!

Thank you for your reply.. The assemblyman of my town or where the board of nursing is?

Contact the assemblyman of your town. They need to hear how bad the BON licensing delays causing inability of new nurse to get license to help relieve facility staffing issues in lieu of pandemic.

Let us know outcome.

They took months to approve my license In 2017 because of an unbelievable backlog. I was so anxious and intimidated, I didn’t advocate for myself properly. I finally just started calling them. Call them every day. Email the correct staff member (at least in 2017 there was on person in charge of last names A-L and one for M-Z and they would go on vacation with no coverage). Keep bothering them, that’s what eventually worked. Good luck! It will happen!

In the past, some super frustrated nurses actually went to Newark to visit the Board IN PERSON to expedite the matter.

However with C19, it could be questionable to determine that the office might be staffed IN PERSON.

Thank you all for your input. I am doing my best to get some answers. I have been waiting since March. This is unacceptable. Pandemic or no pandemic they should have people working around the clock granting licenses. The building is closed and they are “working remotely” . More like sitting around with a stick up their a** collecting a check.
