I just took the NCLEX - PN, my thoughts. - page 5

I feel like burning most the LVN review books I bought as they did me no good what-so-ever on the NCLEX. The questions I got came out of left field. Stuff that wasn't taught in school like post... Read More

    Hey you guys- I did get my results in 16 days, but let me say again how unusual that is. Everybody else I know had to wait three weeks. So I guess you could say 16 days is about the minimum wait, not the norm. I do know how hard this is for you, but remember all of us here are pulling for you!


    Please try to remind yourself how well you have done already- you graduated! And you are a nurse. period. You have really accomplished alot! Nobody can take these things away from you. Now you just have a test, and if you didn't pass it, you will find a way to take it again, and get that license to practice in this byzantine, rediculously slow state.Yes, not passing and retaking is a big hassle, but it is not a statement about you at all. But you know you passed- My personal feeling is that most people who do not pass on the first try already know they always have a test taking problem, test stress, or whatever.

    You've made it this long; just a little longer...

    19 days and NO result. This is getting insane. The worst part is my life has literally been put on hold for the last 3 weeks. I have a plan B if I fail, but I would just like to know something, anything about my result.

    Mine shut off at the min amt of questions and i was sure I failed. I also had a lot of questions about diet, and a bunch of things I had no idea about. While I was taking the test I remember thinking to myself that we never went over a lot of this. I passed the first time though! Good Luck!!

    hey popcorn- I passed about four weeks ago, and my name is still not posted on their site. I really think they don't post it until you send in your $100.00, which is the license fee. Only then do they process your license, and give you a license number, and post it. In Ca., you do not automatically get your license when you pass the test; you must pay more $$$ first, or no license.

    Hang in there!!!!! You will get that letter any day now!!!!!

    And remember: a small, business-sized envelope is good news because it will likely contain a license. A huge envelope is bad news because that means you failed NCLEX and therefore need to complete more paperwork. I am crossing my fingers and praying that you all receive a little envelope.

    yes, getting a failing result before christmas would just ruin the holiday mood for me. it's been about 20 - 21 days since i took the nclex and the wait is really the most brutal part. i get asked daily if i passed from classmates and co-workers. when i say i am still waiting the lvn's give me this look and say they didn't have to wait that long. it really sucks hearing this as it makes me think i failed. i really try not to think about the nclex but it is impossible. my future depends on this result. i have a great jop lined up and just need my result to get it.

    i have given up checking the lvn board. it depressed me to not see my name up thier week after week, but like pine said, her's isn't up there yet and she passed. that is refreshing.

    popcorn21.....you should be getting your result today or wednsday, and i think i will get mine thursday or friday since you took yours a few days earlier.

    yeah , once I open the mailbox I will know instantly if I passed or failed. A big envolope will get thrown across the parking lot and jumped on repeatedly, and a small envelope will give me a much more positive outburst. hehe

    Those of you who are taking California LVN boards won't see your name on the website until you pay an additional $100 licensing fee. Therefore, it's pointless to keep looking on the B.O.N. website for your name when it will not yet appear. The California LVN boards operate totally by hand, so you will be notified of your NCLEX results strictly by mail only.

    oh and one more thing you shouldnt feel down about ppl telling you how it didnt take them that long to get there results because this alot of ppl take there test around this time and its going to be slow regardless bc its christmas. I dont understand the diff between the size of the envelope i know one is thick and the other in thin..unless one is larger width wise..but anyways where are you going to be working if you do pass?
