    hi..I paid the $7 and saw my results but it was not posted on the BON website for almost 2 weeks...so hang in there or maybe you could go to the other website.

    wnt2be, I know that it is a bit expensive, but if I were you, I would go to the pearsonvue website, and pay the fee. At least it would ease your mind. I think that you can call on the phone, or put your credit card info into the computer, and it will give you your unoffical results. The waiting is misery.

    Did you check the website www.rn.ca.gov go to the lower right corner for license verification. Hope this helps. Just hang in there. May I ask you how you studied the second time around. I too failed the first time on 2/28 and I am preparing for my 2nd exam in end of May. Good luck to you. I know it is hard waiting for the results.

    hey everyone, i did not pass for the second time and feeling really depressed. my manager told me that if i pass the third try that she could not offer me a med/surg position. i am feeling bad right about now, and have no advice for studying for your exam. i still have to figure it out.

    ca is one of the states that does not allow applicants to pay extra and see early results

    Did you take Kaplan review, also I heard Saunders comprehensive and Q & A are good Nclex reviews. Don't loose hope, you just need to study harder, and soon you will become an RN. Just give yourself enough time to recover from this one and when you're all ready just try again.

    Hi, I 'm going to schedule NCLEX test late of this month and didn't expect to pass.I know CA board is expected higher score from applicant than other states.This is the truth because they wanted high quality of RN that reason why percentage passing rate is lower that other states .
    Keep trying .You will pass someday.
    I studied so hard before I found out about interim permit kind and after I applied for it .I study but only 1 or 2 hours a day .Now they told me They don't want interim permit who is foreigner and have no experience in USA.
    I don't care about passing the test or not right now /I just focus on going back home in Thailand mid of May and get a job as RN
    .Thsi is my advice can you get another application in other state ? Like FL or TX ? Maybe the the score will be lower than CA board ?And you get a job as RN too

    hi aun, thanks for the reply and advice, i just may give it a whirl. will you keep writing once you go back to thailand and keep me posted on how you are doing. i just want to be a nurse, not a professional test taker. keep writing,

    jazznkate? do you know if i can take the kaplan coarse online? i live in upper jabip, so finding a class locally is impossible?

    You can take the kaplan couse online, but you have to be diligent in listening to the videos. I am taking the online course and I am finding it difficult to sit and listen to them talk for hours. Good luck to you. I know many people who have had to take it a couple times. Like my boss say, some of the best nurses did not pass the first time and sometimes the second time. I take it at the end of april for the 2nd time and am very nervous.

    Hi wnt2besurgrn

    Just to let you know I have just taken the NCLEX for the 3rd time (had to finance trip from UK each time) and Passed. I also had to do 265 questions for the 2nd time but it can be done, done give up, not after all the hard work you have put into it.

    Hi, sorry .I sent you private message and I didn't really read iabout the article.
    I though you are one of my foreigner nurse friend
    I wish you best .Keep in touch and just like I told you .This is really fact " CA board is expected higher score than other states so If I were you I might considering to get RN license in other state eventhough I have tot ake over and over again
    Or you can get class which open by KAPLAN or PEARSON VEU (provider for nclex-RN) I don't know which one is better but I think maybe i will choose PEARSON because they are providing NCLEX Test so they might have more percentage to pass the test or maybe the question you have seen in the calss will be semilar to NCLEX RN
