second application and fee

  1. Hello all,

    why do you actually have to re submit an application to the nursing board and pay the application fee again after you fail the nclex? Shouldn't they have the first application still on file? I just don't understand why they make you re submit an application again. Kinda weird...

    I suppose when you fail, or pass for that matter, that particular application "case" is closed. They consider a new attempt to be a "new" case.

    That could be but you would think that they would require all the documents again. It just doesn't make any sense to me... In order for them to see all your documents they have to assess the old application again so why not use it again.. Idk.. But thank you for the answer.
