East Coast Blizzard 2016 NCLEX-RN Results Delay?

  1. Hi! I took my exam 1/27, and I still haven't received my results. I have had the most anxiety-filled weekend trying to figure out if I passed or not. Test shut off around 90-95. Tons of priority questions, 1 med math, and several SATAs. Just wondering if this has anything to do with Jonas Blizzard 2016. Has anyone had a delay due to snow. Thanks in advanced!

    Quick results should not be affected if your state participates. My state does quick results but it takes 4-6 weeks for a license to post

    Thank you Justbeachy! Unfortunately my state (Virginia) is one that does not participate in the quick results.

    VA isn't as slow as mine but they aren't exactly quick. Did you call the license verification number?

    Hi Cap2253, I am from Virginia also. I took my NCLEX on January 26th and got my results back on the 27th. I called the license number around 9-9:30 and mine was up. Apparently they only update that once a day (usually in the morning, they said 10:00). I also went to where I applied on the Virginia Board of Nursing. Login in and you can check there too. Mine said "No license". So, I figured I failed and went to apply for applcation again. So, when I did that it said "You already have a license of this type." It will also give you a link to click on (i'm assuming only if you pass? I'm not sure) and I was able to see my license number on that. On the 28th my name was on the Virginia license lookup page- this gets updated every morning around 5 am. I hope this helps and good luck!! Please let us know how you did!

    Thank you Have Hope. Recently just tried to do that as well...No nothing. I've tried calling VA BON several times and on the receiving end it's a touch tone dial. No one is there to pick up. I emailed and it was an automated response. I called Pearson and said I should call VA BON. I'm going to try to remain positive, but I do have a job that is constantly asking me how I did on the exam as well, so it is adding pressure. *sigh* For now, I will try to remain focused and actually will just start studying so I am preparing for the worst, and hoping for the best. Just like a nurse would do. Thank you all for your help. I'll update if anything else happens.

    I'm sorry. Hurry up and wait is difficult. Were there any issues that may have triggered a hold/audit? Issues signing in, Palm scan, computer glitches, got excited when finished and stood up instead of raising your hand?

    This is the only reason I could see a hold up. Or if someone was suspected of cheating-it may not have been you (or anyone sitting around you), but just clearing everyone that tested that day? I'm sorry you are experiencing this.

    Also, I tried using that link JustBeachyNurse posted too. I searched on the website by my name and my name also was not found. However, I used my license number and my name popped up. So, don't loose hope! :-)
