I was on here about 10 days ago after I took my NCLEX on Nov.13- I was worried, and everyone here was really great. I got my results 2 days later on the PearsonVue website and it said "pass". Great, right? Then... Today I got a letter from NY state that said, "(my name), an NCLEX examination applicant for the NY State of Nursing, HAS PASSED THE National Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses". However, there was another piece of paper enclosed that said, "Important Notice Regarding Your Examination Results: If you currently hold a limited permit to proectice or are practicing under the exemption for graduates of NY state licensure quailty nursing progemas pending receipt of a limited permit, you must immediately notify your employer of your examination results. Practice under a limited permit or exemprtion is only allowed for ten days after the date of the notice of failure on the professional licensing examination. You may use any of the flooring methods to apply to retake the NCLEX examination" and then it list the phone numbers, websites, etc.
WHAT IS GOING ON? I went to the NY online license verification, and my name is on there, I'm "Registered" and I have a date of liscensure at nov.17th and a liscense number. So..what's this letter about? If there any chance I failed? I don't get it!! If anyone knows anything about this, this is the online thing for NY; that's my real name and where I live (Canada). Any ideas would help!! i'm now feeling paranoid again...like I really did fail it...i don't know why they'd send me this!!
What does this mean to you?
