    I would wait until you know for definite that you have failed. If you have failed it is nothing to be ashamed of, just pick yourself back up and look at a study plan that works for you and start over again.

    Good luck

    i haven't taken the exam just yet, but the buzz says you can pay an extra $8 for the quick results. why don't you give that a try? mind if i just ask, what were your review materials?

    thanks in advance.

    but to me it doesnt really matter how many review materials used,. its all about being dedicated to studying bcuz a couple of my friends only used saunders and passed with 75q and they're foreign graduates too just like myself..but i grew up here in CA just studied in a different country cuz nursing school was too expensive for me here.. so good luck and study harder than i did..

    no prob..but dnt take my word for it tho haha..thats just my opinion cuz my friends passed wth only using saunder's..so all im sayin is just study harder thats all..there's a lot of members here that could help u out a lot a better than i could.. yep grew up here in l.a. but studied in pinas cuz my tuition here for the nursing progrm (only to receive an associate degree) ws ridiculously expensive at a local community college and im already payin for my student loans from my other course that didnt work too well for me...im also an IT graduate...

    Hi,
    It is a big slap on the face. I took my first NCLEX-PN Feb 11, 2009. I stopped at 85, thought i pass. Tried the "trick" it let me pay all over again. After a month of agonizing waiting game from BVNPT...BIG WHITE ENVELOPED came in the mail says in bold letter. I FAILED...But this time i took a different route in reviewing and Im taking my second exam on June 20...Wish me luck..i feel stronger this time and know my stuffed. Good luck to you..

    I took my exam on 6/10 and can't get to the CC page on Pearsonview, my name is not on the BRN site either.

    Also, called the BRN yesterday and they said that it takes between 2 - 4 weeks for them to review your "results".

    I ended up calling the boards and they told me that my file was incomplete. So I drove there to give them the missing info. They told me that I hopefully they will send the license out about one week after everything was confirmed. Or something like that. Also, told me to call them again on Friday just to make sure that nothing else is missing. So, crossing fingers and praying that I'll have the license soon :bowingpur

    Where did you take the test?
