    You will have to wait for snail mail for your results with CA as they do not participate in quick results and will not issue a license without SSN which you can't get until in the US with valid work permit. Good luck

    mine is on its 1st month tomorrow (took it nov.7) so after tomorrow, do i start calling the california board of nursing? I know they don't give the result over the phone but I don't think i can survive another week.

    You could ask when they actually posted it but otherwise not a lot can be done until you receive the mail

    They don't deliver mail if it's Friday? I don't know of any who received their results past 1month among people I know, although I do know it happens.

    I'm sorry that she didn't make it.
    I wouldn't be surprised if I failed myself. The test was a nightmare.

    I know easier said than done but many have posted on receiving results up to 6 weeks after taking the exam, a lot depends on CA and how quick they manually check and then mail letters, worse when international as you then have to wait for local mail

    Good luck

    They do mail it even if its friday but usually our Postal Office distribute their mails on working day basis. It got to be 5-working days, so we'll expect our results next week.

    Even I, im so scared about my result. I just hope i will receive a small white mailing envelop.

    Goodluck to you jenny, let us know what the results are.
