NY license posting wait time

Posted

Specializes in L&D.

Does anyone know approximately how long it takes for NY to post RN license #s (whether it's <48 hrs)? I took my exam a few hours ago and 48 hours seems like a lifetime right now.

PVT was good but I'm cautious to trust it

Hey! Did you ever end up figuring out the wait time for New York? Also where do you check to see if your license is posted? I take the NCLEX soon for NYS.

Hi! I haven't yet figured this out. I found out I passed on 6/4 and I'm still waiting for my license to be posted. I've been checking this site: http://www.op.nysed.gov/opsearches.htm (select Nurse, RN then type in your name).

Some states release license numbers within a day I've heard but I think NY is on the slower side. I'll let you know when I get it though, good luck on your exam!

thank you! how were you able to find out that you passed ?

48 hours after you finish the test Pearsonvue posts whether you passed or failed but you do have to pay for it, about $8

Update: license posted exactly 2 weeks after the exam

Took the NCLEX-PN on June 16th and passed. Tomorrow will be exactly 2 weeks since my test date. I'll check again.

I'm sure it'll show up soon! Also using my full first & last name for some reason doesn't bring it up, if I just type in my last name it comes up.

I have to try it this way! It’s only been a week since I took my exam. So I won’t hold my breath. LOL

Hi LNS95, I was curious to know if the state is going by date the licensing application was submitted. Some people are getting their licenses posted in NY at about two days after passing etc.. Would you mind sharing the date that you applied for your license? I applied on May 24th and the website says they are reviewing applications received 5/12/2020. Thanks in advance.

It's been 2 weeks and 2 days today and my name is not posted yet. 😞 I'm very nervous! I'm trying to figure out what could possibly go wrong other than the fact that they are busy during a pandemic and that there are a lot of applicants. I guess NY is just backed up?

Ah man! That could be it. On their website, it states they are only reviewing applications received on 5/12/2020. Do you remember the date you applied for your license?

I thought about that too. I applied on May 4th for LPN. I don't know if your post refers to getting an RN license but either way, the processing might differ.

Hey, so the processing seems to be the same. I applied for RN license. For both licenses the website says 5/12. Maybe try sending a follow up to the state for application status?

I sent a "contact us form" but haven't heard from them yet. I also contacted my school what could be the problem but haven't heard from them either. All I know is, if ever I had a problem with school requirements they would have notified me before even being eligible to take the NCLEX. Oh well, I guess this is just a waiting game LOL

Yea it is definitely a delay on the NYSED's part. We will be waiting in this game together 😀

Hi, I applied for my license back in March because our school instructed us to do that early on. It still took 2 weeks!

After a week (since I had no idea how long it was supposed to take) I called them. I know it says you can't ask about your status through the phone so I just called to make sure they had everything they needed for my license (no holds). They ended up just telling me my status anyway and saying they're just giving me a number and it'd be up by the next week. You can give that a try but I was on hold for a very long time.
