- 1Jan 16 by Lillian11Today I took the NCLEX and received ALL 265 questions! I immediately tried the PVT, and alas, it took me to the credit card screen.
I am pretty much in acceptance that I probably did fail, but I am holding out a slight glimmer of hope that it is wrong.
Has anyone EVER received a false negative with the PVT??? Know anyone with a false negative???
ANY insight would be wonderful.
I am all cried out, and I WILL NOT give up! This is my calling and passion, and I won't let a test dictate how I feel about myself....Definitely a bummer, if I did fail...
Also, I completed the HURST review, studied almost every day since I graduated a month ago, and did tons of questions. I graduated with my BSN, with a 3.0... I have an 8 month old, and am married, so of course I have had lots of other things to take care of during the past month, but I am just trying to figure out where I went wrong, so that if I failed I can come out a winner next time.
Thank you for any and all advice,
Future RN ;-)

- 0Jan 16 by ssk5I am sorry to hear this. It is lil tough to study besides taking care of kids. And yes,you can do it next time definitely. I failed twice and preparing for 3rd time. My test is in next week. I have 18 months old baby. and to prepare for this exam,i sent her to India in her 10th month. You can understand,how pain it is? This time,i have to pass,otherwise i just cant expect,what happens?
- 1Jan 17 by Meriwhen Asst. AdminI believe there is a thread here somewhere about someone who had the "bad" pop-up and still passed.
IMO, you haven't failed until you get the official word from Pearson that you've failed. And if you have failed, look at the report they send you so you know what happened, learn from it, tweak your review strategy, and try again.
- 0Jan 18 by akulahawkWhat you need to look for is "Delivery Successful" status of your last attempt. If you have that status and you're getting the bad popup, you've likely failed. However, from what I've seen, that's not always "final" and there's a slim chance you've actually passed. Just wait until you get the official word from Pearson Vue that you've actually failed before you get all bothered by it.
If you have failed, chances are pretty good that you'll get a breakdown of the areas you need to work on for the next exam, so all is not lost, even if you've failed this first attempt!
- 0Jan 18 by Lillian11Thank you. I didn't pay the extra money to find out in 2 days from Pearson. I know in my state, the board posts actual licenses 2 days later, so if it's not posted by midnight, I've failed.
It's a really sad thing, I have worked so hard to complete nursing school through so many different family stressors, but it really isn't the end of the world. I have to assume this may have happened for a reason. I had a great job lined up, and I will lose that position as well if I indeed failed, but maybe I will end up with an even better job somewhere else. Who knows. Trying to stay open to whatever is in store for me, and know that I did my very best... that's all I can do...
- 0Jan 18 by ItsjustaprilThe PVT is pretty much accurate except for that one person as you guys mentioned.. I didn't pass my first time either and I was devastated. I tried the trick multiple times thinking that it was a mistake. But what I recommend would be to take maybe a few days or a week and get yourself together.. Cry it all out then get back on it. I felt that I already knew the content material because I reviewed with Hurst over and over again, but my guess was that I didn't do enough practice NCLEX questions. I used Saunders Q&A book and did almost all of the questions. I made sure that I would get at least 70% or higher correct on the different sections. I also used some free online NCLEX style questions. I did so many practice questions that I would dream them as I sleep! Lol then I took my NCLEX the second time and thankfully passed at 75.. When I had failed the first time at 100 ))): So review Hurst some more and grab a Q&A book. And don't get down on yourself too hard! I actually knew many nurses in the ICU and ER that were wonderful and very competent at their job that had failed NCLEX multiple times.. I think a few failed it 6x! Good luck!! You can do it
- 0Jan 18 by JustBeachyNurseThe one person that said the trick was wrong last posted still working as a CNA. It seems it was right and they were too embarrassed to update the original thread. If I recall correctly they assumed seeing their name on the BoN website with license as pending indicated pass when all it indicated was that her data was in the BoN computer and awaiting a pass result.
