    Didnt know I had to send off my money and pay for nursing license before I can get them. Could that be part of the reason why I havent heard from the BON yet? So I mailed off my payment today. I had actually sent my letter off without paying for it two weeks ago explaining what had happened. So Should I send the letter off again today although I just sent the payment off today??? Any suggestions??

    IMO it could not hurt to send the letter again, and include a little explanation of why your payment was delayed.

    Best of luck.

Praying that the BON issues me a license very soon.#Stressing

    Called and checked on my application status and the are in the process of reviewing it.. hopefully they come to a decision quite soon and grant me my license... and finally all of my anxiety will be relieved !! Praying everyday ! staying positive Lord Lnows..

    So after constantly calling the BON of IL about my license looks like im going to have to get my juvenile record expunged ! Ive been waitng for about 2 months ... So filing a petition tomorrow! Getting my license very soon.

    After getting a written letter from the court, i finally got my nursing license !! It is possible to get your nursing license if u do have a criminal background, esp. as a juvenile
