AAAAARGH.... The wait for Excelsior is making me nuts!

  1. :angryfire I passed CPNE on Feb. 18th. That was the last thing I had to do for graduation. When I finished the Info Literacy course in December, it took 5 days to update my status. Now it will take 4-6 WEEKS to do so. And nobody will tell me why there is that long of a delay.... not for graduation, I can deal with that... But just to update my status. In NM, we don't have to actually graduate to be eligible to board, just complete graduation requirements. However, I'm told it will take an additional 10 days AFTER my status is updated to get the certification form complete to send to the BON. With just that form and before taking the NCLEX, I'll get a $300/wk raise in pay from the hospital. I can't believe that after a 4 month wait to even take the CPNE, I'M STILL WAITING! :angryfire

    I went ahead and called my BON and got my application pak. We have to have Criminal background checks from the FBI and that takes 2-4 MONTHS. Can you believe? So, I got that going. It is a long process. Maybe you will hear something soon from EC

    I understand your frustration. Oh I am so glad those days are over! I have no consolation for you except now that Excelsior has all the money they will be getting from you, perhaps they aren't as motivated to git 'er done. It really bites. Sorry.

    I passed the CPNE Oct 2006 (after waiting 3 months to take the thing) and am STILL not licensed in my state.

    Hang in there.

    I can hardly wait for a nice long wait at the end! No wonder I'm procrastinating.
