NCLEX Blues

Posted

Hello to all my nurses!

So I took my NCLEX-PN on July 23,2015. I still haven't received any results. I did the pvt as soon as I came out of the building and got the "good pop up." I also did it again 48 hours later and then a week later. Still good. Is it safe to say I most likely passed more than likely not? I'm driving myself crazy with curiosity. I already have an opportunity lined up at the job I currently work at and I'm eager and anxious to start. Not to mention this is my second time taking my test and I went to school 7 years ago! Afraid of failure I didn't retake my test right away, instead, I became a cna. Is there anyone that can reassure me of this pvt. I didn't do it the first time I took my test. I just waited for results.

It's really hard to say..some people are placed on hold for a few weeks then fail then others get a bad pop and pass. How did you study different this time?

This time I actually studied vigorously. I will admit I was a little cocky the first time around. Passing all of my modules with A's I felt I didn't need to study. I did however, browse through a couple of things before I took it. To be honest I didn't take it seriously. I was young, only 20 at the time of first attempt. Now 27 with two children and a fiancé I was definitely more serious. Not to mention I knew the material from all those years ago. I used the nclex mastery pn app to do questions everyday, the exam cram pn book to brush up on material. A nclex refresher course and I read.

It's been several weeks. Why rely on some "trick" when you should be able to go to the Board of Nursing website (or call them) and check there? What are you waiting for?

BVNPT doesn't post licenses until candidates pay the licensing fee, they must wait 4-8 weeks for the pass/fail letter. If pass must pay $150 and submit the paperwork included with the pass letter. If fail, the candidate performance report is included. The license doesn't post online until the licensing fee is processed & posted

There is nothing definite until it shows up on the BON website. That's great that the trick worked for you, Strawberry. But unless you've seen this persons license number, don't tell them they've definitely passed. You can't know for sure.
