Timeline for Posting PA License on BON Website

Posted

Hey y'all!

Does anyone know/have any information on how long it takes for the Pennsylvania BON to update the website with your RN License?

I took my NCLEX and passed on June 16th but my license is still not posted. I don't know if PA is just really backed up or not (I think online it says it can take up to 30 days) but I was wondering how long it took anyone getting licensed in PA to have it posted after passing?

Thanks in advance 🙂

sorry to hear that.I am also patiently waiting for mine.Its been 3 days.did you call them.

I actually just got it today! It took almost 2 weeks for them to post it from the date I tested. It says it can take up to 30 days but I was curious how soon it actually takes, so hopefully this can help someone else too!

wao CONGRATS @dcl1006. im happy for u. still waiting for mine. plus I moved to maryland and will need to transfer my licence. good luck

I’m also waiting for mine. I tested on June 18 and quick results say I passed. I have been checking every day hoping that it will be posted.

My friend took hers on the 18th and her license just showed up today, so I would definitely expect you'll get yours soon if you haven't already!

I did send them an email this morning. IDK if it was the email or them posting it because it’s been 2 weeks.

@dcl1006 Congratulations! I also got mine recently. Does your PALS say if your paper license has been printed and mailed? My job is requesting a copy of the paper license and I was wondering how long it will take.

I got mine today.My next step is how to endorse the licence in maryland with just the liscence number.I think they will mail the licence in about 6 weeks.

Thank you! What does it say on PALS? Mine says ‘PRINTED’ and today’s date so IDK if that means it’s mailed out or not. I’m in the midst of a move and trying to keep track of everything is so hectic.

also (not sure if Maryland is doing this) check if they’re doing emergency temp licensing due to COVID-19. You may be able to get it first and then do the actual licensing. I know lots of states are doing that for nurses licensed in other states.

mine says mail and shows today's date.I will also check the emergency licence and hear whata they say.

Thanks you too! On my PALS it says that my license was printed on the 30th (the day after my license was posted) and put in the "mail" category but I haven't received anything yet. I don’t know that they have actually mailed it yet so it might just be printed and is placed in the "mail" category awaiting to be sent out if that makes sense.

Since it took nearly two weeks for license to even be posted online, I don't expect to receive anything in the mail immediately.

we are in same category. Mine too says Mail then printed.Hopefully we get it soon.

Any updates? My friend had hers mailed on 7/2 and she received it on 7/9.

I received it on the 9th as well but forgot to update! So overall, I think it took a little over a week for me to receive it from when it was listed as "printed/mailed"... I think the holiday weekend also probably contributed to the delay!

I got mine yesterday. So exactly one week after the mail date on PALS.
