My renewal took less than 30 days!!!?
My packet was sent in on the 12th of May. Received by the nmc on the 14th of May
Sent to the evaluator on the 26th and the evaluator determined they needed a certificate I had already used for a renewal in 2016? After sending in the cert on the 26th, the email review staff sent the cert to the evaluator on the 8th. The evaluator issued and mailed my license on the 9th. With the expedited shipping option, I had my new mmc in hand on the 12th. Pretty impressive with the rapid turnaround. If the nmc had not misplaced my leadership and management cert the whole process could have been completed in less than 3 weeks. Still waiting on them to process my med cert though, good thing my current one is good until march of 22.
I called a few times to check up on things and also monitored my application online. The mailed letter explaining the missing cert arrived the same day as my mmc.
The current flow chart on the website where you check the status of your application is no longer accurate. I was informed by the Nmc contractor working the phones that a mmc application package clears initial screening and will not clear medical before being sent to a professional evaluator. In the past an application cleared med screening then went to professional evaluation as per the now crap flow chart
