The duration of time a bone would take to heal depends entirely on the extent of injury and the type of bone. The collar bone takes about 3 to 8 weeks to heal; the shoulder blade (scapula) takes 6 weeks to heal; a broken rib takes about 4 weeks to heal, while a broken finger can take 4 to 6 weeks to heal.
