Infamous PVT

  1. Hello! I'm new around here.
    I took my NCLEX in Texas around 2PM yesterday. I left by around 3:15PM after 75 questions, followed by a set of "research study" questions that selected candidates were to take 30 minutes after completing the nclex portion.
    I was shaking at 75 questions, when the infamous screen came up. I expected to at least get triple digits. I had over 20+ SATA, 3-4 Drag and Drop, 1 ekg, no drug calcs. I received an email from Pearson Vue when I reached the parking (~10ish minutes after the exam). I stayed in the car, called some friends, went to Starbucks to try to cool down, and walked my dog (all with anxiety, might I add!).

    Even though I told myself I wouldn't, I gave in and tried the PVT 5 hours later, then again 3 hours after that. I tried it again this morning, a total of 16 hours after the exam. With each attempt, the screen said " Our Records indicated that you have recently scheduled. Another registration cannot be made at this time." Along with a red triangle and an exclamation mark. (Which, according to my research, seems to be a good sign.)

    I've been checking the Texas board of nursing often. My name is still under "Graduate Nurse". I Will be investing in quick results. But the anticipation is killing me.. Does anyone know how often Texas BON updates? & if its possible for the PVT to turn bad later on today?

    I took the NCLEX RN yesterday in NY. I had 95 questions and then the research screen started with what seemed like a million questions(it was about 20 lol). I did the PVT about 100 times yesterday lol and I got the infamous "RESULTS ON HOLD" pop up. I just checked it about 5 minutes ago and it changed to the good one. So relieved. But I'm not celebrating yet because this can be wrong. This wait for wednesday morning is killing me!
