Hey all! I wanted to give a quick update to the Pearson Vue Trick (PVT) 2017. While looking for if the "trick" still worked, I didn't see much updated info, and wanted to hopefully alleviate some... Read More

    I am dying!!!! I took my NCLEX for the second time today after failing the first time with 265 questions. I told myself I wasn't going to do the PVT because I was so devastated the first time and got the "bad popup". Well. I took my exam at 11 today, and around question 80 (I turned the counter off, but I had just checked when I was at 75) my computer shut off. My first NCLEX exam was truly the hardest test I have ever taken in my entire life (worse than HESI and CAT) and I had adequately prepared. I did uworld, rationales, took hurst after I graduated. Everything I had read said uworld was much harder than NCLEX questions. Well for my first test, it was like I didnt study AT ALL. It was that hard. I could have studied everything I ever learned in nursing school and still failed the exam - it was almost like a foreign language. Fast forward, I used NCBSN's 8 week learning extension and questions, and Kaplan's questions because they are so challenging. My test today, I felt ready, confident, and the test I took was actually nursing related. In my about 80 questions I had 17 SATA, 2 ordering, no math, no hotspots. I did the PVT and got the good pop-up but I am still so so so nervous. I am in NJ and have to wait 48 hours for my quick results. I am dying over here, these 48 hours are absolute torture!!!!!!!!!

    Hey... So I took my boards in PA on Nov 14th 2017 at 12pm... I got there early and they let me test early. I had 106 questions and I thought I for sure failed! It was really hard and I found myself guessing between 2 answers most of the time... Had a ton of SATA. Once I got home I read about the pvt trick and heard about it from a co worker... Tried it and got the "good pop up" I was a little relieved but still not sure bc I thought for sure I bombed the test. Tried it again a few hours later and all night... Still good pop up. In the morning I was reading a blog that said if you try to register for a license again it will give u a message of "sorry. Unable to register you currently have a license". I then checked on the BON website and my nursing license was there at 8:45 the morning after taking the Nclex. So needless to say the PVT works and I am officially an RN!!!

    How soon after you take the test can you try doing the PVT? Is it immediate or do you have to wait a few hours?

    Hi Everyone,
    I read the comments about PVT and I want to share my experience. It's been a long journey after I failed the first exam with 265 grueling questions. I didn't know about the PVT the first time so I viewed the results through the Ohio board which said closed after 24 hours. In Ohio, closed means failed. I took the exam again on Saturday after Thanksgiving and I has been a long journey. I did the PVT and got the good pop up but was still nervous. This time Pearson website showed the purchase option before the board of nursing so I just paid and got unofficial pass!
    I just want to share that the PVT still works and it worked for me. I entered all my cc information correctly and received good pop up message.
    Good luck to everyone and please go and sit for the exam right after school. That was my mistake; took me 4 months to rest which made me even rusty.

    I took the test yesterday on 30th, I tried the PVT a few hours later and it worked. This morning I saw my license on the Board of Nursing. My NCLEX results are still not available yet, but does it matter? What do the results tell you, is it just pass/fail or does it tell how you did etc? I am expecting the 48hrs for quick results to be up tomorrow or by Monday but I am contemplating whether it is worth paying for the quick results.

    I can attest to the PVT being alive and well in fall 2017 (at least in my case) from both ends of the spectrum. I took the NCLEX for the first time in September 2017 and tried the PVT 4hrs after my exam. My credit card was charged immediately and sure enough, 48hrs later I got the official failing result; considering I'd have to pay to take the test again, this didn't feel like a financial loss (more of an emotional one). I took NCLEX again in November 2017 and tried the PVT at 4, 12, and 36hours later; each time I got the good popup. By 48hrs (the website updated at exactly 9am EST), the results were posted and I passed There seems to be some confusion with the PVT based on previous years instructions, you need to hit submit on the credit card page, simply going to the credit card page is not enough. The good pop up will say, "our records indicate that you have recently scheduled this exam. Another registration cannot be made at this time" and the bad pop up will charge your card. Hope this helps and best wishes for all those waiting for their results!

    Took NCLEX-PN today, 85 questions, 25 SATAs. Got the "good" pop-up. Really?!
    I was prepared to stay for hours with snacks and chocolate-covered coffee beans and L-theanine.
    Hard to believe I could pass those questions in only 85 questions! (Never got a dosage calculation?! Am I misremembering? I almost forgot how to spell my last name when they were checking my identity, and it's a simple last name. Stressed much?) My "exam results are not available at this time." Breathing slowly and deeply as I write this. Leaving for meditation group in five minutes.

    Hi!

    The PVT still works as of December 2017. I even typed in the wrong expiration date to see if it would give me the same pop-up and it did! So to those who are afraid of accidentally spending money on a "trick," just type in the wrong expiration date.

    MY NCLEX (CA) TIMELINE:
    > November 27, 2017 @ 8 AM: Exam day
    > November 27, 2017 @ 9:30AM: Received an email that NCSBN received my exam
    > November 30, 2017 @ 10AM: PVT and did it everyday until I received my letter
    > December 6, 2017: Congratulations letter!
