Why do things in advance?

  1. 0
    Two months ago I registered with my state to take the NCLEX, was fingerprinted, and paid Pearson in anticipation of graduating this week. Having heard nothing, I was expecting to receive my ATT soon. Instead, I received notification that my fingerprints were rejected and that I would have to do them again. I just went and got them redone but have no idea how long that will delay me. So frustrated and questioning why they had us prepare early if they weren't even going to check this stuff before now.

    Just wanted to update this because I feel like I complained prematurely. For whatever reason and through whatever process, my fingerprints were processed quickly and I received my ATT two days later. I was definitely frustrated by things having not been done earlier but luckily it did not slow my down in taking my NCLEX.

    Thank you! Actually I took the NCLEX on 06/10/2013 and passed with 75 questions. :-)

    Good luck to you!

    Seriously, I think I threw off the curve of everyone I know waiting for results and have made my friends that much more nervous when they have to wait the normal 12-24 hours around here. LOL. One of my closest friends took hers yesterday morning at 8:00 a.m. and didn't find out until about 11:00 a.m. this morning. I was absolutely the anomaly in my group, that's for sure!!

    And thank you!! It's now over a week later and it's still sinking in that I'm an RN. Now for finding the job part! LOL.

    I bet! I'll be that person that keeps checking the BON website to make sure they didn't change their mind! I'm just glad my quick results will be ready tomorrow or maaaaybe my license will be posted. I'm fortunate that I have a job lined up and will start orientation July 22nd if I passed boards.

    I hate to admit it but I do have a screenshot on my phone that I look at every once in a while to remind myself it really happened - LOL. Good luck with your results and congrats on the job!! :-)
