Two business days for the results?

  1. Hi there!

    Just took NCLEX yesterday (Thursday) and wondering if I am going to be able to get my results tomorrow morning, since it is a Saturday. I am asking this because of course, I don't know if I can wait till Monday to find out!!!!!

    Hoping some of you could lend me your expertise. Plus, I needed to do something constructive while waiting. This is out of control!:smilecoffeecup:

    I was wondering about that too, it says two business days, though, not 48 hours...

    Saturday and Sunday are not considered business days. Monday thru Friday only. You can also exclude any Federal and/or State holidays as a business day.

    If you took the NCLEX on Thursday, 2 business days would be Monday. You're going to have to hang on through the weekend. Or does your State have the quick result? I know you can call with certain states, pay like $7.95 and get the results.

    Thanks for the responses and the support. Still sweating it in my 36th hour. I got 75 questions. Thought I rocked the first part and then kinda fell apart at the end. I really bought into all the rumors I had heard about successful candidates only having priority questions at the very end. That didn't seem to be the case at the end. Seriously, I think that the less a person knows about the NCLEX format, the better. At least I wish I hadn't done so much research (some reliable, some not) My head is a mess, and I only remember the ones I know I got wrong.

    Something else that has me a little on edge is that there are a total of five graduate nurses new on my unit, including me. They have never had all of the new orientees pass on the first try... As of this week, the other 4 passed, yikes... that leaves me. Hopefully I am the exception!

    THANKS FOR LETTING ME VENT!

    what state are you in? Here in ohio y ou are able to get on the BON website and they have a E-license search and it will say pending until they process it to show you passed. mine was posted on there 26 hrs after i took my test so that was nice...i feel bad for those of you that have to wait so long to find out! I remember my mom-in-law saying how she had to wait 6-8 wks back in the day when she went to school...man would that SUCK! good luck to you!

    Be sure to wait two business days after your test before you request your results!

    HEY, I TOOK THE TEST ON THURSDAY 02/08! I AM WAITING IN AGONY ABOUT THE RESULTS. I'VE CHECKED THE WEBSITE SEVERAL TIMES. MAN I WISH CA WAS A QUICK RESULTS STATE. ANYWAY, DID YOU FIND YOUR QUESTIONS BECOMING EITHER EASY THAN HARD OR DID YOU HAVE CONSISTENT PRIORITY QUESTIONS? I'VE HEARD MAAAANY THINGS ABOUT WHAT KIND OF QUESTIONS PEOPLE HAD. I ACTUALLY KNOW ONE OF MY FRIENDS DID NOT GET MANY PRIORITY BUT LOTS OF SELECT ALL THAT APPLY, MEDS, AND TEACHING. HER QUESTIONS WERE HERE AND THERE AND SOME WERE REPEATED. SHE ALSO GOT A LOT OF ISOLATION QUESTIONS. SHE STOPPED AT 75 AND PASSED. AS FOR ME, I GOT A LOT OF TEACHING, MEDS, SELECT ALL THAT APPLY, TWO DOSAGES, AND SOME PRIORITY. I WANTED IT TO KEEP GOING AFTER 75 AND I THINK I REALLY FAILED. I'M FREAKED OUT THE SAME WAY YOU ARE. I GUESS WE JUST HAVE TO STICK IT OUT UNTIL MONDAY OR SOMETIME NEXT WEEK.

    I took my test on a Friday, and my result came in on Sunday, So.. IF your state does participate in Quick result, your result should be available on Saturday, through the pearsonvue website (quickresult)
