Washington State test limit?

  1. 0
    Does anyone know if there is a limit to the amount of times you can take the NCLEX-RN in Washington state? I have taken and failed two times, awaiting results from third time but I think I failed that too . DOH doesn't say on the website nor will they answer the qustion in e-mails, and nobody else seems to know. Thanks in advance

    time frames:
    • from the time you mail your application to the nursing commission office, it
    takes three-four weeks to process your application. we will not be able to assist
    you prior to receiving your application. please allow enough time before calling
    with questions.
    • carefully read and maintain your candidate bulletin. it contains valuable
    information and telephone numbers.
    • we receive results 24 hours following your exam. once received in the nursing
    commission office exams are processed and mailed to the candidate. allow
    four weeks from test date for results in the mail. you can access our web site
    to see if your license has been issued. you will receive your license in the mail
    7-10 days after it’s issued.
    • if you fail, you will be notified by email with instructions on how to reapply with
    the testing company. there is a mandatory 45 day wait between tests.
    if you have questions or concerns, please call 360.236.4700
