Waiting on ATT letter... - page 6

Has anyone received their ATT letter yet who graduated this fall?... Read More

    I'm steaming mad now.

    Nobody had explained the process to me.

    I've been thinking all this time that I would get an ATT letter, then go online and pay the $200. fee and schedule my test date then.

    NOT!

    So I called the board as my instructor said to do, and they told me to go to www.vue.com/nclex and register and pay my $200 fee.

    Now I apparently wait for the ATT.

    I had it all wrong, but nobody told me anything. How am I supposed to know the process if I haven't been through it before and nobody tells me?

    Trust me, I was in the same exact boat... I think for the most part none of the schools same a darn thing to the students. My school never piped in about anything whatsoever. I went out to Barnes and Noble and did a week and a half research myself on the process. Now I am well informed and I have been letting others know who dont know.. I told soem of my fellow class mates but they are mostly jerks and thought they 'know it all' and turn and tell me something opposite of whats even true of the process instead of actually thanking me for helping them. Throughout nursing school it was very segregated...worst experience and I thought Id making lasting friendships hahahaha! Anyway you dont get ATT letter, its either emailed or if you dont supply an email you will have it mailed and from my understanding its numbers that you type in when you go to schedule your test. Right now you need your eligibility letter from boards. Usually when boards gets through your paperwork they let Pearson Vue know... i believe its electronically then PV automatically sends your ATT and then also a couple days later you will receive your card copy of your eligibilty letter frm boards. I think on that letter you also have a candidate number and with that and the ATT number you type those in on PV site and it will drop down a box of available times and dates for your NCLEX. Good luck and if you need any additional help I will be happy to help ...

    I haven't received my eligibility letter yet...Will it make the process faster if I paid and registered for the NCLEX on pearson vue website?

    I dont think personally it will make the process any faster, but you will def. be one step ahead and when calling PV they are more willing to help than boards... I have had to call PV twice ... because they are supposed to send ATT no later than two weeks is what I read, but for me its been since Dec 7th (5 weeks)... so right now Im waiting on just boards...

    Well, I registered with Pearson and paid my $200 yesterday.

    Hope I hear something soon!

    I'm going to pay and register as soon as I finish posting...LOL

    I heard from a classmate that our instructor probably sent our information to BON on December 20th...2 days after our Pinning Ceremony...This will take foreverrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

    Oh yea! I got all of my papers today! So, if you pay Pearson Vue early when the boards sends your eligibility letter, your ATT is on that letter as well, it saves one step in the process even though I did go to my email as well and had my ATT from Pearson VUe..of course it was in my bulk folder and would have been deleted if I didnt turn off my spam filter. So I singed up for Feb 8th! YAYAYAYAY! Cant wait to get all of this over and start working... Alpha, have you heard anything yet?

    CONGRATS!!!!! I hope I get a date close to yours! I still haven't received my eligibility letter but I registered and paid for my NCLEX already (just to get that step outta the way). I heard that our director sent our paperwork to the BON probably around Dec. 20th (2 days after graduation) so I'm guessing I will receive my eligibility letter the last week of January. I stopped studying for the NCLEX for a whole week and I'm dreading to start reviewing again but I will have to...so I'll start tonight. How do you study for the NCLEX and make sure you cover everything?? That is my fear. GOOD LUCK HEARTJULZ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm excited for ya!

    Hey there Alpha, So far Ive been studying Pharm. I have a book called Exam Cram and have been doing the cd and then I take notes on all of it then also type and print it. I had to do this throughout school to make it 'stick' and so I dont forget... not sure why this works, but it does and is SUPER SUPER time consuming. Im already not doing well w sleep and having muscle spasms in my back... Im getting the feeling this is going to be a long road...ugh! I also dropped my micro. and only kept my Chem. I just cant do it right now ... my main focus needs to be NCLEX ... hang in there with your papers, I had no idea mine would be in the mail Sat. I was so stoked! So if I est. time frame from when my DON sent ours and I got my letter it was around 1mth almost exactly. I will send good vibes your way!

    Thanks HeartJulz!

    I was debating whether or not to take Micro too because I wanted the NCLEX as my main focus but 8 of my classmates who graduated with me from the VN program are taking it as well so I figured we can all support each other down this long road. I saw the Exam Cram book at Barnes and Noble...I think I'm going to buy it. Another girl from this forum mentioned Straight A's in Pharmacology (something like that)...She said it helped her with her pharma questions and she passed the first time. Pharm is one of my WEAKNESS...I don't think I have the motivation you have...wish I did...If you find other effective ways to study...please let me know! You have been so helpful since I've joined this group! THANK YOU THANK YOU! Remember, study but also get plenty of rest!

    No problem and you too have been helpful, thank you! Thats awesome you have all your class mates to take micro w. Im sure that helps a lot. I just went over the resp. sys. and feel so much better... pharm. is my weakness, too... so I gave it a rest and did a different angle. if you want, since I type up notes anyway maybe I can email you notes that I typed up. It may be useful to you... they are keypoints. Just a thought.. if you do let me know your email addy. Also I ordered 4 more books online last night @ ecampus.com. I was able to get SUCH a good deal... the cost of the books I want are average $40 per book... my total came to around 65$ and also you can sell them back when youre done to get money. So I got the Pharm made incredibly easy/PNExam made incredibly easy as well as Lippincotts PN exam review../. and I forgot what else? The times Ive been at barnes and noble and I have found I liked these the best but the cost was crazy... so just more info. if you feel like buying anymore? I have some others I bought in school but I havent used them so much right now... Im focusing more on this exam cram first then aftr Im done the entire book move onto other ones...OK, off to more studying!

    That is so nice of you to share your notes with me...It's all your hard work and studying and you"re so kind to share them with me...simeone who you"ve never even met! Well, all I can say is Thank You in advance! My email is cassandrapascua@yahoo.com
    I have the Nursing Pharmacology made Incredibly Easy book but they dont have questions...I went to Barnes and Nobles to find that Straight A's in Pharmacology Book but they don't have it so I think I"m going to buy it online...they're cheaper online anyway...I want to also try that Exam Cram but I don't feel like buying too many books and studying from too many either because I'll just drive myself crazy...I was only thinking of sticking to just Saunders and Kaplan and going a little extra for Pharma...But I"ll take your word on the Exam Cram though...Don't forget to take breaks in between studying too!!! =)
    My name is Cassey btw..lol
