NCLEX DURING COVID 19

Posted
by Lynnbsn Lynnbsn (New) New Nurse

Hello Nurses!
I graduated from nursing school May 2020 and take my NCLEX tomorrow 6/29/2020. I’m really nervous and can’t sleep. Any tips for the big day?

I used UWorld and Mark Klimek lectures to study. I have low chances of passing the NCLEX according to UWorld 😭

Hi!

CONGRATS on graduating! I just graduated June 15th and took my NCLEX June 27th. I also used UWorld and Kaplan. I would say going in with confidence is huge! Just focus on one question at a time and try not to think about how you might be doing overall. Just treat each question like it is the most important one. If you feel yourself getting flustered or unfocused, take a couple deep breaths. It is very nerve wracking but try not to let it get to you. You've got this! Good luck!

Hello!
congratulations and thanks a lot!! Do you if you passed already? I hope you did 💖 thanks a lot, made me feel better

Hi!
So I got home from taking the test. I did around 85-95 questions. I got so nervous after the questions kept going that I stopped looking at the numbers.

I did the PVT after I got the email and I got the good “pop-up”. I really hope I passed it!

My official results aren't posted yet but when I did the PVT I also go the good pop-up so fingers crossed! CONGRATS on getting the good pop-up too!

Yay! Fingers crossed 🤞🏻. Keep me posted and good luck 🍀 All the post that I’ve seen say the goor pop-up is 99.9% accurate, But I'm here thinking I could be that 0.1% LOL

I paid for the quick results because my BON is being slow and I passed!

OMG!! Congratulations RN!! So happy for you! In which start do you live?

I graduated in May and by the time I got my ATT there were 2 options for NCLEX dates... in 3 days or in 6 months! There were no available dates in between. So I chose to take it 3 days from when I got my ATT. It shut off at 75 questions (minimum is 60 questions during Covid).

I was full-on panicking when I left because I was convinced I failed. I waited for the Pearson e-mail that says "you've taken the NCLEX" (came about 30 minutes after I finished the exam) and did the Pearson Vue Trick. I got the good pop up but still wasn't convinced.

My quick results came in EXACTLY 48 hours from when my Pearson e-mail came (got the Pearson e-mail at 7:01pm on Saturday, quick results available at 7:01pm on Monday). I paid the 8 bucks and I PASSED. My license is still not listed on the BON (Massachusetts) but I am so incredibly relieved.

Good luck!!

Congratulations!!
Tomorrow I’m supposed to get the quick results, Let’s see how it goes. I’ve been so nervous.
My initial date was in September because that was the only option when I first checked, then a few days later there were a few days open for July and I changed it to July 21st. Last week, I was like, you know what? I can’t wait a whole month to take this test, all I thought about was the NCLEX, I was so stressed out and breaking out like crazy. I studied for about 3 weeks 6+ hours a day. I just can’t wait for tomorrow and officially know 😓

do you get an email saying your results are ready?

Update:

the PVT really works! I passed the NCLEX!! Good luck to everyone who’s taking it or is waiting for the results!
The resulta were available exactly 48hrs after I finished the exam.
if you have any questions, feel free to reach out

No email saying results are ready. I just kept refreshing the Pearson vue page until it said “purchase”

This happened to me too! I took mine yesterday, it cut off at 60 and then I got the good pop-up. It's a holiday weekend so I probably won't get results until Monday but fingers crossed!
