Contact PA licensing board. Has nothing to do with being BE/BC.
Thank you.
We did, they said they received the application 4 weeks back and haven't reviewed it yet.

You need to have an full, unrestricted license for the boards??
She did not do her residency in PA but applied for licensing there as it is quicker

You do need an unrestricted license to apply for the boards through ABPN. You'll need to wait. Look for a job and start working.

State Medical Boards move slowly, particularly when they have an avalanche of applications for the residency academic year. There is nothing that can be done, and honestly 4 weeks is not very long for a review. It doesn't help, but this is why a lot of residencies encourage people to get full licenses during their last year. There is no reason for the ABPN to give leniency here, and no real urgency to take the boards.

If someone has poor exam-taking skills and are able to devote full weeks of studying, how much time (in weeks) do they need to devote to prepare for this neuro initial certification exam?
