Nancie, HR knows they can verify your license online. My job accepted my license # until the hard copy came in. It takes awhile.

I took my boards June 28th and received my lic in the mail July 13th. However, my lic number was posted online a full week before that. They can verify your lic number until you get the actual lic in the mail. Hope that helps.

I don't know if other states are different but Massachusetts doesn't have a picture on your license. It's just a card like your CPR or social security card.

Are you sure they don't mean your driver's license? MA definitely does not have photos on nursing licenses but you do need photo ID for HR to identify you. When I got my license 2+ years ago, I saw my license # on the BON 5 days after I took the NCLEX and got my paper license in the mail a month later. I had already started my RN job by then.

Congrats on the job offer!
