New to forum and waiting for NCLEX results

  1. Hello everybody. I have been glued to your postings for the last 2 weeks as my Nclex date approached. Because of that I knew that I probably would feel horrible after taking my exam and guess what...? I do!!! The exam shut off at 75 questions, but I felt like I had guessed at most of the answers. I am beside myself waiting for the results, as if life cannot go on until I know! I have heard that quick results take 48 hours, but 48 hours from what? Every minute waiting seems like an eternity. Is it 48 hours from the time your test results were received, or from the time of your scheduled appointment or from the start of the day of your exam? In the big picture this seems trivial, but does anybody know?

    Thanks

    There are always exceptions, but most people report that Quick Results pop up 48 hours after the start of their NCLEX. In my case, I tested at 9 am (I think - may have been 8:00) and the results were available exactly 48 hours later. Not 47 hours and 59 minutes though.

    Good luck on your results. Let us know how it goes.

    Thanks Eric. The quick results link popped up at 49 hours, and I passed!!!!
    I'm not actually in a quick results participating state ( I'm in Rhode Island),but I know many who have been able to obtain their results this way. I don't know if this a technical glitch or what, but I am thankful. Waiting up to 4 weeks would have been cruel torture!

    You are lucky! I'm not in a quick results state either (TN) and I tried the phone line and it said "sorry..." Well, I tried.

    Glad you found out though.
