California Results

  1. Just took my NCLEX for the second time today and I was wondering how long it has taken people in California before they saw their name on the board's website. I know a couple people who found out in a couple days and I am not sure if that is the average or not. Just looking for some information on when California test takers saw their name. Thanks and hopefully I see mine soon!!!

    One other question, are the results posting automated or do the workers at the board have to enter them into the computer? I've heard of people seeing their results late at night or early in the morning so I don't know if they just didn't look during business hours that day or if one's name can be posted after business hours. Thanks for all the input, this waiting is already killing me!!!!

    It could take anywhere from 2days to 4 weeks from seeing your name in the website. I knew someone who stayed up all night to see when exactly the website is updated and she figured around 3am. The website updates once a day, 5 days a week. You'll receive your result by mail anywhere from 2 weeks to 4 weeks. I haven't known anyone who received a passing result in the mail without seeing their name on the website first. Goodlck to you!

    I'm a foreign nurse i have my SSN already. Is it really true 2 to 3 days if you didn't see your name at BRN in CA it really means that you failed the test? Cuz some told me if you do not have SSN you'll not see your name on the web and if you are a foreign nurse you 'll have your results in a week? can somebody please help me with me this situation...

    I don't know what the board's policy is about when they get the results on the net. I've heard of people getting their results online in a couple days and I've heard of it taking a week to see your name online. I would think it is not safe to say you failed if you don't see your name on the website in only a couple days. Like I said, I've heard of people taking a week or so to see their results on the website. Good luck!!!

    At my school, it depends on when you take it. If you took it early then, the wait could be as much as five weeks. Why? My school's administration takes forever to send the documentation to the board and, apparently, they don't post the scores for anyone until they get those records from the school.

    But, if you take it later and, consequently, after the board gets the school records then, it just takes a couple of days, unless you take the test on a Friday ...

    Or, so I've heard. If you're school is more prompt with the records then, it could be a totally different story.

    It's not a question of you submitting the records to the school. It's a question of when the school submits their records to the board. That's what can really delay getting your NCLEX results.

    Even if you have your SSN, and you don't see you name on the website..... it doesn't mean that you failed. It may show up a few days or a few weeks later ..... better wait for the results by post. Good luck!

    If you passed, AND you have a SSN, AND the CA board has all of your paperwork complete, then you should see your license online within a week of taking exam. They only update once a day and yes, that's in the middle of the night, so if you don't see it there one day, you might see it there the next morning. (I learned this all from THIS website and my own real experience just a short while ago). However, it CAN take longer...so if you see and hear nothing after 3 weeks, good idea to call board and just inquire as to whether anything might be holding up your results. I did this and found out that they never got my transcripts. So I had my school forward them and eventually my license was online, so even though I passed, my results took way longer than usual.

    So for anybody tortured by waiting for a few days, imagine waiting for 4 weeks...
