I need help from anyone who took NCLEX in California!

  1. 0
    Hello

    I took NCLEX last Thursday on 2/2/2012 at 10:15am, and stopped around question 86 I guess.

    I tried PVT 6 hours after the exam and has been getting good pop-up since then.

    I have been checking BON everyday but my name is still not on the list...

    Yesterday, I found someone else who took the exam on the same date and at the same time got her name on BON.

    Now I see a thread that is saying PVT is unreliable and my anxiety level is getting higher and higher over time. I almost cried this morning...


    How long do BON usually take before they post our name on their website?

    Should I email them? or call them?

    I will wait for your reply..

    I am in great despair..

    How long ago did you graduate nursing school? Has your school submitted all of the required paperwork to the BON to prove that you graduated? If not, that could be the hold up.

    In my case, about a week passed between when I took the NCLEX and when my name appeared on the BON website. Usually it only takes 2-4 days. I called the BON (I know they say not to, but I found it actually wasn't that hard to get through to a live person) and learned that the paperwork verifying that I had graduated was sitting on somebody's desk somewhere. The person who answered said they would process the paperwork that same day and I guess they did, because my name appeared on the website either the next day or the day after. I took the NCLEX less than 2 weeks after graduation. This was in June 2008.

    Good luck!

    I just called BON and was able to talk to the operator but they kept saying the result will be sent in mail within 3-4 weeks and they are NOT the one who can check the result for me.

    I don't know what's going on with BON. Now they don't deal with NCLEX result? I am confused...

    Pay $150 dollars for my licence? what do you mean?

    I paid $200 for NCLEX registration and another $200 when I sent my paper application to BON... Is there any extra that i need to pay?

    I took NCLEX-RN, not NCLEX-PN..

    So I need to pay $150 more after I get the official result via mail?

    Wow.. so much money..

    I took the NCLEX-RN in CA on Jan 19th 2012. About 8 other people in my graduating class took the exam the SAME day as well. Long story short, about 3 of them saw their name and license # on the BRN website about 7 days later. I was PANICKED because my name was not there (and neither were some of my other classmates), and we took the exam on the same day. My name (and my other classmates names) all finally appeared on the BRN site about 12 days after our test date. Moral of the story is have patience. I know that this is much easier said than done, TRUST ME!! I did the pearson vue trick, and I whole heartedly believe that it works!!! Good luck to you, and try to enjoy your weekend!! I'm sure you did GREAT!!!!!!
