Took NCLEX on the 15th, PVT good pop up, license pending on BON?

  1. 0
    Hey all, I took the NCLEX on the 15th. It took me 2 hours for 75 questions and the computer shut off... I left there thinking that I had completely failed...
    I am very skeptical about the PVT, I did get the good pop up, but I don't trust it 100%...
    I checked the Maryland Board of Nursing this morning (17th), my name was up there, but no license #, it says under 'status' and 'checklist' that it is pending... The quick results are still not up as well...
    I am in a panic thinking that I have to retake it now... Because a few of my friends who were not successful, their license still says pending after a week...
    Any thoughts? And words of encouragement would be great

    It says pending for everyone who applied! Every state updates differently, I also am waiting for quick results today and mine still says pending. I even know people who passed who still have "pending" because our state is slow :-/.

    I thought the exam was quite difficult... I literally blanked on so many questions and felt like I was guessing on all of them and everything that I learned in nursing school just went out the door...
    Have you tried the PVT?

    Oh oops! Sorry I misread, I thought you had taken it already. No test is the same, so I can't really say you should study this over that... But I had a good amount of SATA questions, meds, lots of patient teaching, and LOTSS of priority questions. I had a nursing tutor that helped me with NCLEX strategies and I also did a lot of practice test questions. I used a Kaplan review book (I think there were two tests in there, one in the book and one on CD) and Exam Cram-RN by Pearson (There are 5 practice tests in there, but I found a few typos...) Also there was a slideshare that I ran into that had a whole bunch of Kaplan practice questions as well.
    And make sure you keep calm! Anxiety is a killer! Go in there and have the mindset that you will take the whole 6 hours and all 265 questions, so that if you do pass 75 questions, you won't go into a panic and start freaking out! Also don't cram, so definitely set up a study schedule and stay dedicated. I would recommend trying a practice test first and see your areas of weakness and write those on a separate sheet of people and review that content.
    Good luck!

    Hey just give it time. I took it on the 15th too for MD BON. I had pending Tuesday morning and then a license # by Tuesday afternoon.

    Crying I don't know what to do with myself right now!!!!
    Exam: NCLEX-RN: The National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses
    Grade: Pass

    So I guess the PVT does work! I am still waiting for my license # to pop up on the BON. I caved in and paid the 8 bucks. SO happy I could die right now..
