    Hi. One thing I can share with you about CA Breeze..
    If you already have an account, log on and then check on upper right and you will see "License/Registration Information". If you don't see any numbers underneath, then there's two possibilities. One, you failed. The other, they have not updated your account. One reason being, that you passed but have not paid for your license. Now here's what I call the CBT or Ca Breeze Trick (which I don't know if this has been going on or was done in the past)... On that same page on your account, check upper right (again) and click on "Update Profile". On the next page, go down and click on "Add Licences". The next page will ask you to pick the BON and then RN on the drop down menu. Do that and the next page, which has simple instructions. When you get to the page where it says "Good news!", and you find your full name, a number, license type, etc....then, you know that you passed and see the license number given to you.

    Whew! That was long! LOL
    Don't stress...don't even bother doing the PVT, just wait. Good things come at the right time. Best of luck to you.

    I went to the "Good News" page with numbers above my name, but there are no numbers under my name where it is highlighted in green. Instead, it says, "license/registration" twice. Does that mean I didn't pass? It has been 48 hrs and nothing posted on breeze yet.

    Hi Scrub Smurf,
    I went to the "Good News" page with numbers above my name, but there are no numbers under my name where it is highlighted in green. Instead, it says, "license/registration" twice. Does that mean I didn't pass? Or is the only batch of numbers on top of my name that I see, is the license number? It has been 48 hrs and nothing posted on breeze yet.

    Hello LaDeeDah. The license number should be underneath the "license/registration Number". Now I don't know how long it takes for them to include the license number on this page once you passed, so keep on checking. But if within a week and it's still not showing, then I suggest that you prepare yourself to retake the exam.

    ugh...I might have failed then I only see the "Indiv/Org number" above my name, but no numbers underneath except for the description "license/registration number" it'll be 72 hours total in about 16 hours I keep checking every hour.

    I see. Well..keep your hopes up. Keep checking. If you get a letter-sized envelope by mail, then you will really know how you did. Don't worry, failure is one way of making things perfect second time around.

    Thank you! I'm a repeat test taker and now I have to go through that horrible feeling again. Still no result yet. I'm in California and went all the way to 265 questions. I haven't caved in for the PVT yet, but looks like I probably didn't make it again.

    Finally caved in and gave the PVT a try. I used an American Express birthday gift card with no name on it and then I used my debit card, entered everything correctly expect for the expiration date and sure enough, got the bad pop up again. Good luck to the rest of those who are still waiting. You guys got this!

    I didn't bother with the PVT, just wanted to relax after NCLEX lol. Anyway my result on Cali breeze was quick! Only took a day and a half, searched for my name in the database and saw it. My brother also tested for NCLEX and he saw his name in breeze after about 2 days.

    Hope you passed!

    When was this..??

    Hi Lahdeedah,

    I heard if you get the bad PVT pop-up, it's not necessarily accurate and they mark your exam twice or something!!! Don't give up hope!!!!!!

    Also, for anyone retaking:

    Everyone I know raved about Uworld Uworld Uworld. I bought both the Uworld testbank, and Kaplan course. My nursing friends shared the Hurstt videos and Mark Klimek lectures with me, which I dutifully listened to and made notes. After doing several Kaplan question trainers, I stopped using it because compared to Uworld, their rationales were crappy. I focused JUST on Uworld, and made notes on top of my Hurst notes.

    I did Uworld questions TWICE, reading the rationales carefully.

    At my nursing program in Canada, we have a whole year of community nursing in 3rd year, with 4th year being mostly practicals, and I also got a community placement in 4th year so I haven't used my patho and med surg knowledge since 2nd year. My content was really really lacking and I found Uworld and Hurst really helpful for that.

    BUT, during my nclex exam, I realized the content from Uworld and Hurst was NOT enough. I got a bunch of EKG strips. One of them I never saw in Uworld - after my exam I tried to look it up to be sure . However, I did learn about it in the Mark Klimek lectures. Omg!!! He helped me so much with the EKGs!!!!!!! Also, I saw some questions that were REALLY super similar to Kaplan, like almost word by word. After my exam I really kicked myself for not going through the Kaplan testbank.

    It LOOKED just like Uworld but with similar questions from Kaplan. That's just how it was to me.
