    I took the nclex-rn 2days ago, I tried the pearson vue trick today and was so devastated when it asked for my credit card payment. Has anyone experienced the same thing but still passed when the mail arrived? My state is CA and I still have to waIt for about 3weeks.

    I just feel so numb right now. Please enlighten me.
    i got the credit card page also and found out 2 days later with the quick results that I failed. I searched high and low for any threads that would indicate a glitch but nothing I'm sorry. I tested monday found out wednesday and recheduled already today friday for the ned of april! good luck!! post in the nclex section there's a few threads like this

    Just being objective here:

    4 people, including me. All did the PVT..
    1 person got the Credit Card Page
    3 people got the pop-up.

    the one that got the credit card page did not pass.

    this is in CA for the NCLEX-RN, in February 2011.

    no one's gonna tell us who don't know...what the Pearson vue trick is?

    Whispera,

    The trick is you try to register for the nclex again after taking it. If it pops up with a form that says "our records indicate that you are already scheduled to take thsi exam" (the wording might be a bit different) then you passed the test, If it goes the credit card page to let you register again ..........its because the computer system knows that you need to retake the test and you failed.


    The few post i have read where the trick was wrong were all out of california because i guess the bon reviews scores and on rare occassion let a few through that would have otherwise failed in other states ? Im not from CA and that is just what i got from reading the thread so defininately don't take my word. but the general rule of thumb is if you get the credit card page.....you failed. good luck!

    If you passed, your license will appear on the CA BRN website under "license verification" within 2-3 days of passing. Go to rn.ca.gov and look yourself up. The only reason your license wouldn't post in 2-3 days is either if you didn't pass, or if your school hasn't yet sent them your final paperwork showing you graduated -- but schools generally do that within a week or two of graduation, so unless you graduated recently, that wouldn't be the reason.

    If you didn't pass, don't despair. You can sign up to retake it in 45 days (and study your rear end off between now and then).

    Best of luck to you!

    The "trick" has been accurate everytime that I know of. Can you not get the QUICK RESULTS from PearsonVue? I paid the $8 when they were available in 48 hours just to confirm.

    Another piece of good advise; in addition to studying your ( _|_ ) off, invest and take one of the NCLEX review courses. There's a number of them out there; Kaplan, Hurst, etc. One of them (the one I took) boast's a 98% first time pass rate or money back. They can be pricey (couple of hundred $$$) but again well worth the money if they help you pass.

    Good luck!!

    The pearson trick worked for me as well(I passed). How many questions did you have? I had 75, usually the less the better from what I hear. Good luck to you and if you didn't pass this time, definitely take Kaplan, well worth it!

    Quick Results are not available in all states. California is one of the states in which they are not available.
