I took my nclex Monday at 12 and tried the pearsonvue trick and it states my results are on hold tried today to get my quick results and it says my results are not available. When I called NCSBN they said that my test has been put on hold and they can't tell me why or when they will be available to me! I have been a wreck ever since! Has anyone else had this happened? Any advice!?! I am about to loose my mind waiting here!

First things first: calm down and BREATHE! I swear I can see you freaking out through the computer ;)

Ok now. Results can be placed on hold for a multitude of reasons, and oftentimes are. Of course it's happened to others, this isn't new. Why did this happen on your exam? Well, if there was a glitch or any issue with your palm scan, if there was a power issue at the testing site, if you finished faster than what they deem 'usual', if there was a problem with ANOTHER tester at the site, you can have a flagged exam. Just means that it's going to be reviewed to be sure there's nothing you did that would invalidate your exam. If you didn't do anything wrong....nothing to worry about at all.

When your Hold is lifted, your results will be made available. If you live in a State that participates in Quick Results, you can get the pass/fail status for a fee of eight bucks. Well worth it, IMHO. If not, your message will ALWAYS read "results unavailable" even when your license is posted on the BoN's website ;)

Hang in there. You'll survive this!

My state does offer it but since my exam is on hold I'm not able to get the results until the hold is lifted :( I just wish I knew if I passed or not :( I guess they did have some promblems with my palm scan I had to redo my right hand like three times but then it was okay after the third and when I went to leave I had to do it twice but it still was verified on the second time I wonder if that is what could be the hold up? I finished in like 2 and a half hours so I don't have to worry about finishing too quickly ha
