Retaking NCLEX-RN in Ontario

  1. Hi everyone,

    I failed my first attempt on the NCLEX-RN examination. I have paid Pearson VUE for another test since then and am waiting for my ATT.

    I am from Ontario, Canada, with the College of Nurses of Ontario (CNO) and am not quite sure how to obtain my ATT. I know some states need you to re-register with the college. However, on CNO's website and in my letter, they simply tell me to register to write NCLEX-RN again. It has been one month since I have registered and there is still no e-mail with my ATT.

    I tried contacting the College multiple times, but they are not responding to my e-mails and my calls are not getting through ("they've been expecting a high amount of calls"). I really do not want to delay writing the test further and want to set a date. I already know dates are being booked out, so I really want to schedule mine!

    If you're from Ontario, or have any idea what I need to do to get my ATT, please let me know!

    Hi. I have also failed on my first attempt. For me I called pearson as they are the ones that send them out and not CNO. When I called they gave me one right away. Hope that helps.

    Thanks for your input MJ48!

    I will try calling Pearson tomorrow. I actually sent an email to Pearson VUE, and they responded "At this time, we have not received electronic confirmation of your eligibility from your Board of Nursing."
    That's what made me think I had to reach out to CNO.

    From your experience, you paid to take the test and called to received your ATT and everything worked out?

    Thanks again!

    Sorry to hear you guys are going through all these, KS95 I advice you got to CNO office if you live close. It may take forever for them to respond. All the best to you guys and try keep us updated on your Nclex Journey.

    No problem. Yes. I did register to take the test again and then called to get my ATT as it was taking longer than it should have I believe. It all worked out in the end.

    Thanks for the advice, hopetopassnclex!

    I called Pearson VUE today, and they told me everything looks good on their end. They will need CNO to send my eligibility again for me to get my ATT.
    I don't live near CNO but will be going down there tomorrow and hopefully have them send my info to Pearson. It's been more than a month since I have paid and just want to schedule a date before they all get booked! :S

    Good that way or else you will be waiting forever. Goodluck

    I am in the same position! Just wondering if you ended up going down to the CNO and what ended up happening?
