Have you checked the BON website?

Yes my provisional has lapsed as of the 10th but still saying no exam results available on Pearson?

Depending on your state sometimes the fastest way to find out is look up your license. In WI it updates literally hourly, I think most states update at least daily. If your license shows up on your states department that covers professional licensing as active, you passed. If it shows up as expired or inactive [i think different states may have different terminology for this] you likely failed, if it still shows up temporary the results of the NCLEX either haven't been reported yet to the state or the state hasn't updated the license lookup yet.

Individual license lookup is considered public knowledge and is free by the way so there's no need to pay for fast results if Pearson Vue even still offers that.

That must mean I failedí ½í¸¥í ½í¸¥í ½í¸¥my provisional lapsed on the 10th I took my exam on the 9thí ½í¸¥í ½í¸¥í ½í¸¥í ½í¸¥í ½í¸¥í ½í¸¥thank you for your help.

Sadly you are probably correct, if your provisional license is showing as expired and your license has not changed to active it is pretty safe to assume you failed. Sorry about that.

Thanks so much, I failed I can go back and retake it in 45 days í ½í¸­í ½í¸­í ½í¸­í ½í¸­í ½í¸­
