I was able to get my license number by just taking the drive up to Newark. I was able to get it the same day. It's a shame that we have to go up there but if you really need it take the drive. It's so worth it $$$$

Question. I accidentally entered the wrong year on my NJ BON application for when I started my program. I entered 2012 instead of 2010. With all the applications for jobs etc. I was filling out, I must have had the wrong thought in my head. Is this a major problem. I still graduated successfully from my BSN program. Thanks!

You can see if you can edit your online application, use the contact form on BoN website or try calling on Tuesday. It will likely get flagged but not be a huge deal (as in a typo)

WOW Took my test on Monday (Aug. 5th) and just learned that it may take up to 12 weeks to get my license. I went to school with people from NY and they had their number in 48 hours and their license in hand about a week later, this really sucks. I have to opportunities for work and I am missing out on them because the state takes long to process paperwork. How is it that NY can process their paperwork and issues the licenses so fast and NJ take up to 12 weeks (or longer). I just called them and the person that answered didn't even take my name just said you have to wait and that was it. Very disappointed in the State of NJ.

It took me about 4 weeks to get my license. I know I got it quickly because I showed my face at the BON. Of course, if you call they'll tell you not to come because it won't speed up the process but it worked for others before me and it worked for me. I passed Jan 3rd and already accepted a RN position and was working by Feb 11th. Some of the delay was my job with preemployment physicals and all. I say take the trip but wait at least 2-3 weeks.

They held up my license for 3 months. ****** tells me she will mail my fingerprinting form and when I call to follow up, she tells me to wait yet another 7 to 10 bus. days and finally, after the 3rd "7 - 10" bus. day wait, she'll tell you she never mailed it out and may even apologize for it. After I finally got them to mail my fingerprinting form, I called there to give my new address, of course, they mailed it to the wrong address anyway. So I call to find out where my license was mailed to and get 4 different answers from ****, ****,****,*****." There is no *****, that's the name they use when they don't want you to know who they are. When ever you try to get them to give you accurate information, they say, "we're just a call center." As soon as they realize you've got their number, they put you on hold forever, tell you they have no supervisor or hang up the phone on you. Ask for *****, he's the manager, he'll resolve your issues asap. When they tell you there is no such person as ***** or that he's gone for the day, keep calling back until you get one of them who is honest and will connect you to him.

Hi everyone. I applied over the summer and got my att in October...passed nclex 12/19/13 and its now Jan 28 and still no license...they say because I have a pharm tech license and my background check info is with that my application is delayed because they have not submitted it and so I may not get my license for a while. I am furious...I have already lost 2 jobs because I don't have my license. I have a interview today and had one last week...I can't lose another job because of these people. Any advice?

I also have passed my NCLEX on December 2nd and still no license. I called a couple times a week and was told everything was in...finally someone informed me I needed to pay 22 dollars to have my fingerprints rerun due to them being run the first over 6 months ago. They told me today another 10 to 15 business days for my fingerprints to be rerun and another 10 to 15 for the board approval. Does anyone have any contacts at the board? I think this is absolutely bizarre.

Go to the board office and tell them this! You will leave with your license or within hours it'll show on the web.
