On a technical level, what is the process between being a nominee confirmed in the senate to being on the supreme court?

Just curious. Does the senate give her a piece of paper that she brings to the supreme court saying she was confirmed? What is the process involved that literally gets her on the bench after the vote to confirm her?

    She is sworn in and then is on the SCOTUS.  Done.

    There is NOTHING technical. The Supreme Court Justice takes the Oath of Office. Once confirmed, they ARE on the court.

    Dave: A judge isn't even nominated until their is a vacancy and they ARE a member of the court as soon as the confirmation vote is complete.

    The senate has to have a majority in this case it was down partisan lines 52-48 and then the Senate says she's confirmed. I don't know how long it is before she starts the job. but since it is empty, probably sooner than later.
