restesting after school is shut down

  1. Hopefully someone can give me some advice or point me in the right direction. I graduated from lvn school back in 2012 I tested back then failed the exam decided I wasn't gonna test again due to me being discouraged. Years later I decided I wanted to test again, here's the problem I have to apply to take the nclex all over again which means I have to get the school to sign and send over my information, but the school is closed. I am unable to get my transcript.. I contacted the owner of the school who is basically holding my transcript hostage until I pay $4700. Is there any way possible I can go around this option?

    Pay $4700 for what? Did you still owe them tuition money?

    The BON is usually the repository of records for closed down schools.

    You said it was for books and things, but does that mean you owed them money? If so, then I can see why they won't give you transcripts until you pay it.

    Let the Board of Nursing know about this. Also the Attorney General in your state. That should get you some attention- as you didn't seem to 'owe' this money before they let you test the first time, right?
