Posting new RN license

Hi guys,

I recently passed my NCLEX, and have been waiting since 1/12 for PA to post my license.  Any idea how long this takes?  I was told by SBON that even though I applied for my graduate license before sitting for boards, that since I have taken boards, they will not issue my graduate license.  So unfortunately I'm at their mercy.... impatiently checking daily for my license to post.

Apparently PA BON is extremely backed up. I have traveler friends who have had to delay contracts because they didn't get a PA license in time.
