Canadian and moving to Baltimore, wrote my nclex on the 1st of Feb. Comp shut off at 75, I must say that I had a sickening feeling in my stomach. I would say that I guessed @ 40% of them. Any-body out there that wrote in MD? And how long did it take to get the results?

Here is a neat little trick... give it 72-96 hours after your exam, then call you state board of nursing & ask if a license has been issued to you [you will have to supply social security number & date of birth]. Obviously, they will not issue a license if you did not pass NCLEX. NCLEX is national, you must have taken the exam at a Sylvan or Prometric center. They are usually quick in thier results transmissions to state boards of nursing.

DO not panic if there is no liscence after the time that Tim mentioned. It took 12 days for my liscence to appear (magically) on the Board's computers. I have a friend from MD who says they are very slow- you probably did just fine. I felt that same way when mine shut off at 75- I kept thinking, wait! I know more!! Let me show you what else I know!! Good Luck. and Welcome to the US.
