NCLEX-HELP!

Posted

First off thank you so much for anyone who is taking time to read this and help me out.

I took my NCLEX-PN this morning and have some questions about the PVT trick after reading about a million blogs.

To do this trick- you have to enter all ur CC info and then hit submit - and then submit again a final time?

Also to people who have used different expiration date then on the card and it went through saying "invalid" it for surely does not charge your card then right???

Quick backgroud- i finished today with 85 questions and ALOT of SATA. ive read some places that thats great and others that it doesnt mean anything. My last question was a SATA and i feel fairly certain that I got it correct- does that mean anything?? We were told all through nursing school that if you have alot of SATA you are doing well. I hope that is true.

I am from ND so I will have quick results by friday but would like to ease my mind and find out sooner. any input at all is truly appreciated.

I have also heard that if you go on your board of nursing website and search your name ur work permit will be taken off if u fail- if anyone has heard anything about this or timing of how this works please let me know! THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH. SAYING PRAYERS AS WE WAIT!

I don't know if it's different state-by-state, but I had my results within like 27 hours (took exam at 0800 and had my license listed on BON site by 1100 next morning and I'm in Ohio). I never tried the "trick". Good luck to you!! :)

Lots of misinformation came your way. The number of SATA questions you get has absolutely no bearing on how well or how poorly you are doing. They are merely an alternative formatting of question type, NOT an indication of higher or lower-level questioning. So that's a fallacy.

Some States' websites will remove a candidate's permit once the NCLEX has been taken, regardless of passing or failing; after all, the permit is now invalid regardless of the test status. Some States will leave it in place until a license number is posted, others drop it off the day you take your NCLEX. Means nothing to you either way.

Having the minimum number of questions means you were either doing very well, and the computer deemed you competent quickly....or.....you were doing very poorly and the computer 'knew' that no matter how many questions you got, you wouldn't be able to pass that day. Given your student history, which is more likely?

Getting the last question right or wrong isn't of relevance, as you don't know whether you were above or below the passing standard. So it doesn't much matter.

But this DOES matter, and I strongly suggest you read this before doing something you will likely regret:

I don't think the last question will determine the pass or fail unless you are on the passing line and you got the last question wrong and it fell below passing.

I think I got the last question wrong. It's not SATA, just a diet question but it was a tough one. Anyway, I found out less than 48 hours later that I passed because MI BON posted my license. I recently received my license in mail.
