Time Ran Out! (NCLEX-RN) - page 2

Hello everyone.. new here. yes I need to change my screen name because when I picked, "nurse" I was referring to student nurse.. or even IP. That's how Kaplan referred to the class... as "nurses"..... Read More

    So there is still hope.....thank you lovethisjob! Does anyone know if you there is a difference in mail time if you pass or fail. If you pass does it take longer to get your results through the CA mail then if you failed? How long should I expect to wait to get my results by mail?

    Dear lovethisjob, Do you think you could ask your friend how long it took her to hear a response?? We're all just so curious. These nursing graduates are being such troopers it would be nice to give them more hope. Keep up the positive energy guys!

    hi Beetle, yes i also used the decision tree. Lord help us!

    I just checked this morning and it's been updated yesterday. must be sometime after 5pm because that was the last time I checked. Yes, "no news is good news".. but even though it's still early, like wdiehl, each day with no news seems like an omen

    thanks "ipassedyay2006".. you're so supportive and encouraging.. it's definitely needed because this discouraging feeling dwelling in my stomach everyday is such a downer.

    wdiehl, i'm not familiar with the pn format.. but i did just hear my friend's best friend just passed the pn and it took her 3-4 weeks as well. at least you still have a reason to have hope!

    i guess i feel down when i had someone tell me that if i passed i'll see something in 2 days here in cali. but we all know that it took 3.5 days to update the site. but yes i'm extemely worried.

    thanks lovethisjob.. i lovethisjob too. lol. wish i was working already. i get sad driving by the hospital i want to work at. thanks for giving me hope about your friend. what state was she in? and like ipassed, do you happen to know how long it took for her to find out?

    i'm thinking for those of us who ran out of time, maybe there's more reviewing involved to get the proper estimate of the last 60. but then again it could just be all computer and immediate like those who end in 75, etc. lol, it's funny when we start overthinking. but we can't help it! thanks ipassed, you are so correct.. we're just trying to hang in there and be troopers.

    beetle, i failed the first time. and my experience was... i had a friend take it the day after me. she had transcript problems and i didn't... we both kept checking in.. and when her transcripts cleared.. she begged for them to tell her if she passed.. although they weren't supposed to, they did tell her she passed and said that it would be online the next day. when she told me this, i knew that it must not be good for me. but i tried again anyway, and received the same response that my transcripts and files were complete, they couldn't tell me anything over the phone and that the letters haven't gone out yet. i didn't know what that really meant at the time.. but now i hear that if it's not up in the 2-10 days you find out the bad news in the mail in about 3 weeks. again presuming your file is up-to-date. and that was my case.. my friend found out immediately.. and i found out through the mail in that time.

    so although i do know a few people who were told over the phone they passed but did not have their transcripts, i did have another friend beg to be told and they said they couldn't tell her over the phone.. but then she found it online 2-3 days later.

    holy guacamole.

    good luck to us all. it's great we have this support team to vent to and with to help get through it. no one else really knows what we're going through. thanks thread!

    As Kaplan says, "I WILL PASS!"

    Hey FutureRn,

    Yes, I see that they updated the website. No luck for me either. I don't know if there is a longer review for our tests? Something is making the BRN slow down because of how long it has taken them to update. The BRN does a good job of keeping the whole process a mystery. All we can do is pray and wait for the mail to arrive! I'm glad we have each other to talk to for suppport.

    another updated site to no avail i'm starting to lose hope. i called yesterday and i was told "it has not posted yet." i don't know what that meant.. but i'll try to stay positive. but i think i better start planning a study plan on top of my grad classes. Please Lord, let me pass!!!!!!!!!

    how u doin' beetle?

    I'm in the same boat as you. Still waiting to hear something. I'm thinking I'm going to have to take it again. I haven't got my results in the mail yet. When I called the BRN last week they also told me that my test had not been posted yet. Do you think that it takes longer for "timed out" tests because of the last 60 rule? (Grasping at "what if's") I better start a study plan too. I should just submit another application now so I don't have to be waiting on the ATT and have my 45 days turn into 90. I wish there was better news for us!

    the mailing time really isn't affected whether you passed or failed. results do come depending on your local postal service. mine arrived a little less than a month.

    here's a tip: if the letter comes in a small white envelope (a thin one), then you definitely passed! if it comes in a thick big envelope, sorry to say, but you didn't make it. it's thick, they say, because it comes with a re-application form.

    goodluck! hope for the best...

    my friend took her ca nclex-rn exam in hong kong. since calif does not give out results via the web, then, one just has to wait for at least a month to get results. it usually takes that long for letters from their bon to arrive. (at least in my country) however, in other states, its much faster to get results online, just about 3 days.

    today for spring cleaning, i cleaned out my closet. i have lots of scrubs handed down to me from my mom who's been an RN for 26+ years. i used them all throughout my nursing school rotations. I kept them hung in the closet, anticipating that I would use them again soon. Today, I decided to fold them and store them in a storage bin it was such a sentimental experience. no i'm not "giving up..." but i realize i'll take them out when it's time.

    oh thanks beetle.. i didn't know we could re-apply already. if we "get lucky" and find out we passed after all, will they refund the $75 reapply fee? are there other things we have to send that we'd have to wait for the official package for? i guess i'll take a look-see.. but i feel like i remember having to wait for the official package to do anything.. i can't remember. i'll focus on holy week for now.. and then face reality on monday

    it's like i've accepted it as time goes by without my name on the ca website. but each new dayi look, with those last ounces of hope.... seeing that the site has been updated...and then don't see it again, i feel like i was re-stabbed in the heart and i have to pick myself up again. sigh.

    good luck to all.

    Not sure what state you are in but have you heard of the Pearson vue trick to see if you passed or failed? If you are in a state that uses Pearson vue to register for tests then you should be able to try it. Go back on Pearson vue and try and register to take the test again under your existing account, if you get a pop up to pay again then you failed, but if you get one that says you recently took it and contact the board of nursing then you passed. Let me know. Good luck.
