How long did you wait to find out your NCLEX results?

U.S.A. Illinois


Hi everyone,

I just took my NCLEX exam yesterday morning. I have applied to get my license in Illinois. Many people I have talked to have taken their exams and found out if they passed the next afternoon. I was wondering how long it took to get your results when you applied for licensure in Illinois. Maybe Illinois just takes longer?? Any information will help decrease my stress! :specs:

It took my NCLEX on a Saturday and found out the following it took 48 hours. All of my classmates i have stated it has taken 48 hours for them too to get quickresults from Pearsonvue. Hope that helps!

yes you can get your results after 48 hours thru the Pearson Vue quick results by paying the fee.

48 hours....and I had my mother (retired RN) call in to get my results because I was too emotional to do it myself (what a whimp, eh?)

Needless to say.....I passed on the first try! It was over 8 years ago, but I can remember that feeling like it was yesterday!

I found out 28 hours after my test appointment time by checking my application status and grade at Continental Testing's site...and the best part was, it was free.
