Retook NCLEX & GOOD PVT message

  1. I was scheduled for the NCLEX-RN today in California. I had 75 questions, at least 20 SATA, a few exhibits, a couple drag & drop/ordered response as well as graphic alternate questions. I did not have any math which I was kind of bummed since that is my strong point; but hey I passed according to Pearson Vue Trick because I have taken the NCLEX before and never got the message. Instead I was prompted to make a payment to register for the test again. So seeing the message was good thing for me. I am so relieved that this obstacle is over and on to the next which is looking for a job; preferably an RN New Grad Program/Internship. I am celebrating and Thanking God for this moment. In preparing for the test, I used Kaplan on Demand as well as the Kaplan NCLEX-RN Strategies book. Love that book, strategies, strategies, strategies are so helpful. Will go into details about studying at a later time; once the official results come in!!

    Ok, so I just want to clarify, you have already taken the NCLEX? And you re took it, and got the good pop up, and you know you already passed? I am asking because I re took the Texas NCLEX PN, yesterday, and I am getting the good pop up, the first time I took it, I got all the way to the credit card info page, and I knew I had failed it. So I am wanting to make sure that the trick works on retakes!

    Mommylove2000, I did retake the nclex and the trick does work on retakes. I studied with other students who had previously failed and they took the exam again a few months ago, they all got the good pop up as where before, it went straight to the credit card info page. Hope this helps!

    I agree, never give up. I did postpone the test several times and almost postponed this last time. Life kept happening and felt the added stress would cause failure. Despite having 3 deaths within a two week period prior to the test, found the strength to pull it together.

    As for the fee's, I had to pay $150 to reapply to the state along with $200 Pearson Vue testing fee. $350 is the total you have to pay in Ca to retake the test. Sucks but have to pass one day and would continue to pay it until that happens; and in my case, Oct 19, 2012 marks the day I became a nurse. Yay!

    congratulations! I took my test in Chicago on Oct. 19th and got the good popup. I had a lot of Sata, couple of order question and no calculations. Stopped after 85 questions and I thought the test was pretty easy. Looking forward to official results.
