NCLEX-RN California May 2018

  1. For those who recently took their 2018 NCLEX-RN exam in California and passed, how many days did it take before you saw your name on the NSBN license verification website? I took my exam on May 12, 2018 (Sat.) and I started checking the website on May 15 but have not seen my name yet and I am getting so VERY ANXIOUS. I tried the Pearson Vue trick earlier and I got the good pop up, which many say means that I passed. When I checked the BON website, it states that currently they are processing those who took the test May 1- May 15 and it takes 2 to 4 weeks processing time. Do we really have to wait this long? Two weeks to 1 month? The wait is killing me. I am getting so scared...what should I do?

    48 business hours for online posting.
    The schedule for the BON reflects the formal paperwork.

    Any update on your results? I also took the NCLEX-RN in California on May 12 and I'm still waiting for my results. I got the "good pop up" with the PVT. I just spoke to a representative and he told me it can take 4-6 weeks. It's frustrating most of my classmates got their results within 48 hours!

    I keep checking everyday, and still have no results!!! Yes, I agree it's really frustrating! We are on the same boat. Which testing center did you take your exam? I am wondering if maybe they do the computer data entry by batches that is why they are posted at varying times. We have to stretch our patience, but it's hard not to feel frustrated because it feels like our lives are on hold. I can't start looking for a job because I am not officially an RN yet. I also feel nervous because of the possibility that PVT might be wrong (hopefully NOT) and I might be disappointed. This waiting game is really a pain! We should all lobby that they have "quick results" here in California like the other States, so that they can help ease the anxiety of people waiting for their results for weeks!

    Same here! Nothing updated, still pending status on CA Breeze. I'm getting really worried too! I took mine in Ontario, CA testing center. I was told by my professors that it's possible that there are a lot who took the exams recently or many graduating students have just sent in their application to take the NCLEX-RN hence there are more applications being processed at this time and is causing a delay in releasing the results of those who just took the exam. The good pop up on PVT is the only one giving me hope, but I'm afraid that I'm getting more and more anxious each day without any results.

    Also, for a point of reference, this was my second time taking the test. The first time when I received my results of failure it took less than a week.

    @lizhelen777, hi! I am a retaker 2nd time. May i know how many months you waited for your ATT?

    Hi there! I was wondering how long is took for you guys to receive your ATT once the processing timetable had switched to "Now reviewing application submitted during *insert the date you submitted your application*".
    I submitted my application April 4th and the website changed to "Now processing application submitted April 1st - 15th".... it changed to this on May 21st and today is the 31st

    HI! I am also curious how long it took you guys to get your ATT. I submitted my application back in October and my transcripts were sent out following my graduation in the beginning of May. Most of my friends have been able to schedule tests in other states. Just curious what the timeline looks like

    hi @lizhelen777, I was wondering how long did you wait for your 2nd ATT? I already submitted my application last May online and the check has already been cashed. It's August now and I haven't received any email or mail.
