NCLEX Accommodations 2020

Posted

Has anyone had any RECENT experience scheduling an NCLEX with accommodations? I have read some horror stories on reddit saying it took months to even receive a call back to schedule. Since my school cannot offer any advice on this matter I am turning to my allnurses community.

OK, today is Aug 10. I was told our School list would be sent to the FL BON by Aug 14. The FL BON advised that it is taking 3-4 business days to process School Lists, therefore an ATT should be coming by Aug 20.

I am starting a DNP program on Aug 24, and must have my license in hand by Oct 22. Further, I was offered my *Dream Job* as a nurse resident, and they require a license by Sep 19. If anyone has any information on this, I would be forever grateful!

That timeline seems to be unrealistic. The BON may receive all of the school's list of qualified graduates in 3-4 business days, but the BON needs to process each student's application. It takes about 4-5 weeks to receive your ATT after your graduation date (Pre-COVID).

Right, but my application was totally complete aside from the school list on June 12. So when I called the BON, and I asked specifically citing the above situation and I was told 3-4 business days.

I’m really looking for help with scheduling as it pertains to Accommodations such as separate room testing and extra time. Do you have any experience with this?
