PA Board of Nursing Temporary Practice Permit

by Peyton Hampson Peyton Hampson (New) New


I am wondering if anyone has any recent experience with applying for their PA RN license and what the timeframe was like? I have applied for my endorsement license and temporary practice permit and have sent in all of the required documents but my application has not been updated in 3+ weeks. Due to COVID, they are not taking any phone calls and have not responded to my multiple emails and voicemails. 

Any guidance or information would be greatly appreciated!

Pre-COVID it took me about 4+ months to get my full PA license via endorsement (I applied in July and received it at the end of November after numerous phone calls). My mother just applied for endorsement to PA from MA and it took just as long, if not longer. I had to contact my state representative to get some movement on the license for my mom but he lit enough of a fire under them that she had the full license 48 hours later.
