I've had my NJ license since 1992---will faithfully renew it so I don't have to go through the nightmare of reinstatement.

In the process of reinstating my Delaware license and they want a copy of all 30 CEU certificates--pape rfile is 1 1/2" thick.

So sorry you are in this time warp. In addition to sending letter regarding your plight to local legislator and Dept Consumer Affairs:

Governor Christie's office needs to be informed how his budget cuts have affected your livlehoods.

Well today I think I made some headway after calling the past 3 weeks. Someone finally tells me "the only thing left is fingerprints" Me:What!? I'm an LPN NJ BON has them already...Rep:"did you send a payment of 22.55 for persons who have fingerprints on file"...Me: yes.Rep:"oh yes, the payment was processed in June"... Now she says she will send an email alert pertaining such. Ohhh vey! Well she was nice. She actually looked up my info. The others I don't think even bothered; they just gave me a generic answer to get me off the phone. So now she says call back in 10-15 business day( mind you it's already OVER 4 weeks already). That's too much... I think I'll call them in 5 days :)

i got a rep on the phone that told me she sent an email alert to find my Letter of Completion a few weeks ago. she said if i still get nothing, call back in 7-10 days. it's been way more than that already. until now, letter is still not processed, and still no ATT. yep, my NCLEX is never happening. :spin: :p

Leilai, maybe you should ask to speak with a supervisor or file a complaint. You know what they say...the squeaky wheel gets the oil! :)

Like mentioned earlier in this thread....If you register here:

https://newjersey.mylicense.com/eGov/Login.aspx

You can see the list of forms submitted and everything necessary for licensing. and if you are deficient in anything. I would go here first before calling or driving to Newark.

I passed my board exam for PN on September 12, 2012, until now i didn't get my license. I've been calling them to make a follow up cause i feel like they're not doing anything about it at all. First they told me told me that it will take 20-30 business days to get the license so i waited but now it's been more than a month but i still didn't get it. When i call them they give me an attitude & they keep on telling me to wait. I'm so sick of waiting for them to do their job i already waited for 3months to get my ATT from them, what should i do? Somebody told me that it's not good if i keep on calling them cause they might push my license all the way to the back & give me more problem. Someone told me to go Newark physically, not sure if it's a good idea though...

3 of us here had instant success going to Newark, as did two of my new grad coworkers. So far, going to Newark seems to be the most effective way to get things moving. Good luck to you!
