    Hello, I recently took my nclex and have yet to receive my results but upon looking up my license it says the status is "closed" and the sub status is "denied" was curious what this could mean?
    Kinda sounds to me like you aren't getting a license. Any chance you called the BON and asked them about it?

    Hello everyone. Quick question, when I wanted to check if I passed my nclex, I did the pearson vue trick to see if I passed, and obviously i didn't. But i didn't use a fake credit card. I actually used a valid one. Just wondering where that $200 went? Can I retrieve it? or am i out $200. I want to pay for my nclex because i got my authorization. thanks
    Obviously you didn't pass? How so? Did you get official results saying that, or are you going off the fact that you paid $200? FWIW the majority of the time paying the money means you failed and just paid for a new registration (after all that is what you DID when you sent them the money) but there's been a few people on here who paid the money and found out that they passed.

    Get official results to be sure before you start studying again.

    Sorry for the late reply! I entered the correct credit card info and clicked once, which shows the summary that will be charged. According to what I searched on the web, you should get the pop-up there. I didn't click the last button that would've made the payment, if that makes sense. So, to answer your question, I didn't pay for a new exam.
    ah, then NO, you did not get the bad pop up, as Hopeful just explained. You didn't actually complete the steps, so you can't know if it did or didn't "work" in your case.

    Not that it matters now

    Hi everyone i just took my nclex exam july 14.
    i stopped at 75 questions my last questions was SATA. Does anyone know if i had a chance of passing since my last question was a SATA?
    The type of question is utterly and entirely irrelevant. As is whether you got that question correct.

    If at 75 questions you were far enough above the passing standard that the computer determined a 95% confidence, the test stopped, you passed. IF, however, at that point the test was 95% certain that no matter how many questions you got you could not pass that exam that day, it stopped, you failed.

    Which is more likely in your case?

    N. Maren and Ertr like this.

    why would you assume your application has been destroyed rather than there is something going on with the website? Call the BON, ask them about it.

    as a reminder to those who have not yet received a nursing license, use of "rn" or "lpn" in their user IDs is forbidden on this website. Use of it indicates you have earned a license you do not have.

    Wow you have an answer for everything, don't you? Have you ever taken a nursing exam? They're so in depth and and why wouldn't someone utilize resources that are available to them? When referring to "clinical grades " I am saying just because they have test accommodations doesn't mean they can't do their job! In school and for the nclex you have to take be able to pass these tests with a certain average and just because they use accommodations for the nclex doesn't mean they will need those same accommodation when they become RNs. I was also making a point when I was in school I could run circles around people in clinical that didn't have accommodations and could get 100s on the tests. There is two sides of nursing and I'm stronger at one than the other ������ I tested separately from everyone on every test and will be for the nclex. Will I need to be separated when I'm on the floor with my patients and colleagues, nope!
    IF you could just drop the snarkiness from your reactions and response you just MIGHT be able to get your point across in a professional and even educational manner. As it is you've done nothing to shed any light on this topic or answer even a single question that those of us who are asking very reasonable questions are seeking.

    Our questions have to do with HOW it is that someone who REQUIRES a test to be read to them in order to expect to be able to PASS that test is likely to succeed in the day-to-day work a typical nurse experiences in a typical shift. No need to respond with nastiness to an honest question, it really does nothing to help your (or anyone else needing this accommodation) position to be understood. Supposedly, you DO want others to understand, right?

    Ok, so please take a moment to explain. OBVIOUSLY those of us who are real, working nurses have taken nursing exams, there's that snark I mentioned. What we DO NOT understand is how it is that one MUST have exams read to them, exams that do not have anyone's life hanging in the balance of understanding that questions, yet will be perfectly fine WITHOUT having someone read things to them where people's lives DO hang in the balance. Surely you can see the issue, the reason for concern?

    If you are saying that you do not need anyone to read anything to you at all at any time while you are working, you understand perfectly the "in depth" nature of pharmacology reference books and online resources, med references you MUST be able to read, then WHY do you NEED the "accommodation" of having someone read the NCLEX to you??

    Thank you the palm reader couldn't read a couple times so maybe that's it. I did try the trick and got the good pop up and then I tried it again and it let me pay $200. So dowas this mean I more than likely failed?
    From reading on here it looks like the big majority of the time, when people pay the $200 it is because they have failed the test. In those cases, they will need another exam anyway so the $200 is not lost. There have been a couple, two or three that I saw, who paid the $200 and it turned out that they actually passed the test. For them, they were happy they passed the test but threw away $200 each. I guess you can't be sure until you get official results one way or the other. I wouldn't want to hold on to too many hopes, because it does seem to be a rare thing that someone pays the money and then passes. But hey, it does happen.

    Ok so I took my NCLEX rn yesterday and didn't finish until 8 pm I got all the questions!! Last night it said test results on hold. Today it says test results not available. What does this mean??? Does anyone know if this is a good thing or bad thing?
    Read your other thread.

    IT is neither good nor bad. A hold is put on any test that has something that needs further review, usually something like a palm scan that didn't take on the first try, or if you took extra breaks or if there was a problem with something at the testing site you knew nothing about. If something happened that raised a possibility of cheating the video and such is reviewed. Once they determine all is well they will release your test result to the board of nursing. Results Not Available shows for any state that doesn't participate in Quick Results (they will never be available on the website) or if it's too early for the QR purchase option. You can't get results in any event until the hold is lifted.

    Good luck!

    Having a diagnosis of ADHD does not require an exam to be read to the individual with ADHD. I don't have a count of how many people I know with this diagnosis, but I am comfortable in saying MANY. And of the people that I know personally, not one has such an accommodation in place as you are describing. If this is the reason for your accommodation, the question still remains, how do you expect to hold a job as a nurse with this need in place?

    I do have to also say I am surprised learning there are 10 students in one graduating nursing class who require exams to be read to them, including the licensing exam that determines the ability to function as a nurse.

    Ah good to know. I just assumed that they were available until the next round. Now my answer looks quite silly.
    Nah, no one knows everything! It's always good to pick up something new :-)

    Of course you should like your job but to love it, thats not good because then you always want to work right, and that may not be healthy on both the body and mind.
    Not right. Actually, very wrong. Most people are not fortunate enough to have a job that they truly love doing. Those who are blessed to have a job that they love are truly blessed! I still don't understand your reasoning that loving one's job means it must be bad for you. I think you might be confusing those who do not respect professional boundaries with those who do. Loving one's job and remaining at a professional distance and pace is what keeps people loving their jobs. Those who cross boundaries, those are the people who will find themselves in trouble. I can only imagine that you have never had a job you loved. While that's sad, it is of course common too. Hope you luck out better next time.

    Start by confirming with your State Board of Nursing whether you are still eligible to take another NCLEX. Time out of school can impact eligibility in some states. Once you determine you are eligible, enroll yourself in a review course with a solid reputation. Go with a classroom setting, forget about trying to teach yourself with a review book. Usually doesn't work out well. 4 years is a long time to not be studying or practicing, you will need a strong tutoring system. Good luck.

    If I apply to a ADN/ASN program will any of my credits transfer to allow me to finish the ADN/ASN programs quicker? or will it generally be same as any other students in the program?
    An associate's degree nursing program is two years long. That is AFTER all of your prerequisite course work is completed. You would have to be able to transfer all of the prerequisite course work first or complete the school's course work there in order to be considered for the nursing program in an ASN track. It isn't that your prior degree will make it faster to get through an associate's degree program, if you have all of your prerequisite courses done within your first degree you would simply become eligible to apply for the associates program. Depending on the program, you're current GPA may make you ineligible for some Associates nursing programs. They can be quite competitive, depends on the area and the schools you are interested in attending. You can look at an accelerated BSN program, meaning you would transfer your credits from your existing bachelor degree over to another 4 years school and then complete the nursing program with a bsn being the end result. Same problem though, your low GPA will knock you out of the running at many schools. You will simply have to do your leg work and see what the requirements are for schools in your geographic region. Good luck.
