PA BON Requirements

Posted

I am an out of state nursing student in IL and wish to apply to PA nursing board to take the NCLEX in PA. PA requires fingerprinting for out of state students, but I cannot find the service code for IdentoGo to use. I tried contacting the BON for help, but no one has gotten back with me. Does anyone know what service code should be used so that my fingerprint cards will go to the PA state nursing board?

Thank you!

Currently my application is pending review and it has been this way for almost a month :( ...

Everything is moving super slow now. Have you tried emailing them? They actually do respond. You’ll get and automated email back but then within a day or two an actual human gets back to you. I’m waiting for my ATT, all my documentation has been accepted. They’re reviewing my transcript. I just want to get this Test out of the way!!

That’s good you are almost done with the application process ! I emailed them two weeks ago with no reply, so I will have to try again . Best of luck !

My fbi has been pending review since the first week of May and my IL name check has been pending since the second week of May. I don’t know if they will even accept what I submitted from out of state. I tried emailing the board 2 days ago and no answer .

Because of COVID, everything is working at a snails pace. Expect to take a week or more to get an email response as some staff furloughed while others working from home.

Hope your license issues resolved. If you've obtained PA residency, could reach out to State Representative for assistance.

Thank you for the advice!

I have not gotten my ATT. I emailed the board twice a month ago and two weeks ago with no response. My application still says pending review, so I don't know what to do. My driver's license has always been PA even when I went to school in IL, so I don't know why it is taking so long for me. I even contacted my school to see if they sent the education verification form, which they did. I am really at a loss...

Hey:

PA states ACT 31 requires a 3hr Child Abuse Recognition and Reporting course for initial licensure then 2 hr course with each license renewal for health care professionals, funeral directors, those working with children. One is available online for free from Pennsylvania Child Welfare Resource Center--course results automatically sent to BON. Nothing gets approved until BON receives report CE completed.

Thank you. I have completed my child abuse training already .
