    Its a poorly run department. You call the customer service line and they tell you they are not connected with the BON. they continiously feed you lies..they told me 5 to 1p business days for 2 months to reinstatemy license…not to memtion it took 2 months to even aknowledge receipt of my application..i had to fed ex my application 3 times. I called the listed BON phone nunver three times a week to find out the delay..everytime i received a different answer. I always got the run around…promised phone calls from supervisors who could help that nevet happened…finally they receive my application and everytho g is good on my checklist so i call agai. To get the status and i am told i will habe to wait am additional 8 to 12 weeka for board approval…now i am scheduled to begin work in less than a week with a pending approval status that will cost me my job. Now what…the girl on the phone tells me they have been lying to me about the 5 to 10 business day wait becuase they probably dont want to make me feel bad. Well how will i feed my childrem 7or pay my rent because these lies are costing me my job. I sat and wait as i was told only tp find out that i was lied to. My employer will not hold my job another 3 months…just not fair. I cant work without my license. I did everything on my end…i paid all of the fees which i couldnt afford and now for christmas surprise i was misled and am going to lose my job offer..no medical benefits for my children. Is this fair? I paid 400 dollars for this service ..what can we do as nurses to fix this situation..on a personal level it may leave me unemployed for months..on a state level…i have to imagine this issue trickles into short staffed facilities working nurses in unsafe environments plaving patient care and safety at risk. I am astonished that no one is speaking out on this issue.
