CA BON NCLEX RN Results?

  1. I took my dreaded NCLEX RN exam last Aug 21 and it shut down between 136-142 questions, I cant remember the exact number. I experienced the same way...guessed a lot of questions, I think that I failed, etc. Im so numb to dwell on it.:chuckle looming bi-polar disorder????

    I called the CA Bon this morning to change my address and in passing ask the person on the otherline that if by any chance I can know the results? He told me to wait in the mail for 2-4 weeks, and CA BON does not post it online. All the while I thought I can check the results in the web site, thru the permanent license verification? Is this true?

    By the way, Im a newbie here but i have been monitoring and reading a lot of post since 2005. Great job!

    The guy on the phone was right. Actually, I think it's probably closer to the 4 weeks. This is one of the reasons why Suzanne4 (co-moderator of this forum and the International Forum) doesn't recommend CA to international nurses. Without an SSN, I think you are stuck waiting for the mail.

    I have my SSN and greencard via spousal visa. My wife is a nurse too.:chuckle I have been working for a hospital on an IP since May 2006. Do you think I cannot check my name on the website and really have to wait for the mail? Thanks!

    Most of my classmates who passed the exam were able to check their result from the website under "permanent license verification". But it could range from 2days to 2 weeks. So yes, you can check it on the website but don't feel frustrated if your name doesn't appear yet because sometimes your name won't appear even if you passed. Hang in there!

    Thanks for the encouragement, but already saw my name in the site with an RN written all over it.:chuckle

    Congratulations!!!! How many days did you find out on the website? I took my test on Aug. 22 and I'm getting nervous because it's the second day now and I still don't see my name.
