If you sent it to Albany, sometimes paperwork gets done FAST and sometimes so slow you can't believe it.

When I was dealing with ATTs, new licensing this past summer, I found a phone call clued me in more than anything else on the status of my stuff. Remember to be VERY courteous, very nice, and I had it returned :)

Good luck to you...and welcome to NY!! :D

Welcome to New York! I have just relocated here myself and I am still looking for a job... Anyways, the processing of NYC license is less than a month. I suggest that you call the NY boards to follow it up to be sure that they are already evaluating your papers. Good luck!:nuke:

Hey.. sorry if I sound stupid but what paperwork are we required to submit when relocating?

I currently have MA RN license and I applied to NYU fall semester, admissions told me that I need to show evidence of holding an active NY RN license before enrolled. I don't have to retake NCLEX in order to do that do I ? I mean, there should be ways to endorse one's license. However, I just went on the NY BON website but I can't find any information regarding this. It'll be great if someone can point me to the right direction. Thanks!

I hope you have gotten it by now but my advice to you is to send it overnight and send a return overnight envelope to them as well.
