Got the ATT

  1. I submitted all the paperwork to the board and just recently got my approval to test. Does this mean the board has approved my application with a criminal history. I'm in California. I also got a letter from the board stating I was found eligible to test. What exactly does this mean? Can they still deny me after I take the test. I'm confused

    Yes, they can still deny you even after authorizing you to test.

    Has this happened to you or anyone you know here in CA?

    It hasn't happened to me, but people do post about it occasionally. If you search the site, you should find some first hand accounts.
    Good luck to you.

    Can you tell me how long it took from application to ATT? Also, how did you submit your documents? Several of my classmates and myself scanned ours and two of my friends got a letter requesting records to be sent. I did not receive a letter requesting records. I'm nervous. Either I am still waiting on that letter or my scanned documents were sufficient.

    I sent my application by mail in February. I got another letter requesting certified documents about a month latter and just got the ATT a week ago.

    They can still deny a license. I applied to the BRN in December 2017 and I scanned in my documents. I got my ATT in February 2018 but I never got a letter indicating whether or not they would pursue anything further. I called the BRN and they told me over the phone that I was cleared and would be granted an unencumbered license if I passed NCLEX. Well I passed NCLEX and I did receive a license WITHOUT any restrictions. My advice is to call the BRN and ask because you don't want to find out you passed NCLEX and were given a provisional license at the same time. That would be a bummer.

    I know many people complain that the BRN never answers, but they have answered the times I called. I called as soon as they opened and waited 35 minutes to talk to someone, but they did eventually answer. Good luck!

    I submitted my documents online by scanning them. I did not receive a letter requesting any documents.

    Just a FYI. I never received the good news letter and just found out I passed and my unrestricted license has been posted!

    Well I took the nclex , passed and my license was posted 2 days later. Unrestricted. So I guess you don't have to receive the good news letter.
