California Board of Nursing Confusion???

  1. Hello All,

    I just want your opinion on what do you think is happening on my case. I am a foreign nurse in the U.S. right now under immigrant visa. This is the second time that I took the NCLEX-RN for CA-BON. I believe that I have submitted and met all the requirements in the CA-BON including SSN and was declared eligible to take the nclex. I took the nclex last Jan 12, 2007. Until this date I have no clue what has happened to my papers and have not received any results or online updates.

    Most of the people that took the NCLEX-rn for CABON who are U.S. residents were able to receive their results within 1 week or only a few days after taking the exam. Adding more to this confusion is that I called CABON and they told me that they mailed that results to me last Jan. 16, 2007...well I confirmed it twice that they in fact mailed the results...I waited patiently for 1 week and there was still no mail. I was advised by the postman to reconfirm CABON if they really mailed the letter. The postman said that it would only take two days to receive the mail...

    I called CABON, and inquired about the status of my case, CABON told me that they have received the results of the exam last Jan. 16, 2007 but DID NOT MAIL THE RESULTS YET... and said MY STATUS IS PENDING...

    (When I first failed the NCLEX last year, CABON immediately mailed the CANDIDATE PERFORMANCE REPORT after two days from the exam date and a notification that I i failed the exam, I was able to receive my results within a week that I failed my nclex exam)

    What I am curious about is that why is my status pending, PENDING APPLICATION would mean that it would be subject for review or further evaluation by the CA RN Board... Well definitely I presume that if in fact I failed then they would not have to worry "pending" my application... They would have to send me a big envelop and a CPR and a retake appplication...

    2nd confusion, if I was declared eligible to take the exam and that means if ever I pass I am eligible to receive a license...well unless my credentials are being reviewed??? I really don't know...

    From what I understand, the moment your test ENDS...the computer/pearsonvue already knows whether you passed or not... PEARSONVUE claimed that the test results are automatically transmitted electronically to NCSBN... in that way this is the reason why is there a quick results for some states...

    In fact CA-BON has access to this electronic data or in someway NCSBN send these test results to the nursing boards electronically within 2 business days.

    So all nursing boards receives test results quickly from NCSBN and the nursing boards already knows if a particular candidate passed or failed...

    In conclusion and I want your opinion; what do you think happened to my case? Is it pending because my credentials are being reviewed by CABON before a license can be issued to me? (and it means that I pass the nclex-rn???)

    OR... I simply failed, but if I failed why is it that they have not yet mailed the results or why is my status still pending???


    clear my confusion...
