Valid ID for NCLEX-RN @ Pearson Vue
- 0Aug 2, '12 by newgradJRhello all,
i'll be taking my nclex-rn within the next 2 weeks in nj. ok, sooo i've been meaning to post about it here on an.
on the day of test, we need to bring valid id, ie. driver's license, passport, etc.
the thing with me is that my driver's license first name is not exactly the same as on my att. lol -_- when i was filling out my info at the dmv years ago, i didn't think to write the last letter of my first name because my first name is too long to fit on the form. so since then, i've had my driver's license ...missing the last letter of my first name. soooo, i don't know if that's ok to present on the day of the test, since it does not match my att (darn it) i know it's too late to get it fixed bc i know where i am in nj, the dmv can take a long time.
with that said, i want to show/bring my passport on the day of the nclex @ pearson. however, the photograph of myself was when i was 17, and i'm 23. so i look a lil different, lost a lot of weight, hair is up to my shoulders (in the pic, my hair is past it). so, i can't really gauge how "recent" the photograph needs to be. i did get my passport issued in 2006, and it expires in 2016.
lastly, where's it's stated under "given name" on my passport it says my first name and my mom's maiden name (which is my middle name). however, on my att it just states my first name and my middle initial. is this ok? i know pearson reviews only the first name and last name.
pleaseee can someone please give me any kind of information? i really don't wanna be turned away on the day of the nclex!
i already contacted pearson via e-mail about the whole thing and i'm considering going to the pearson center tomorrow morning.
thank you! any info would be greatly appreciated!!!!
