NCLEX-RN today...still says results on hold

Keep obsessively trying the PVT and getting the "results are on hold" pop-up. How long did you guys have to wait for the "good" pop-up? Some friends who took it this morning already have theirs and I'm getting nervous. :(

Had 75 questions and at least 15 SATA so feeling pretty good. Would LOVE some reassurance though, as I felt like I guessed on everything!!

Thanks.

In the original post with PVT instructions it says it might mean they are conducting a review of my exam. Is there any truth to that?! Do I really need to wait another day (or more) when everyone already got the good pop up? NEED to see some good news!!

Yes it means that they are reviewing your exam & the videos. As long as you followed the rules (no cell phone even on break, no brain dumping, no getting up without raising your hand) just sit tight. I've seen it happen when a tester had to double scan palm or thumb or finished quickly

Thanks! Do you know if people are randomly chosen for a review? I didn't do anything out of the ordinary- wasn't the first one done, didn't take any breaks, etc. I wonder if it's because I was wearing a religious head covering. Hmm. I'm sure everything was on the up and up. Guess I'll have to hang in there a little longer. Trying to stay distracted, but it's soooo hard!

Could be and once tape reviewed and see that it wasn't used inappropriately all will be fine. Give it a couple of days

I was "on hold" all day yesterday. Today I got the "good" pop-up! Hoping this works the same way as it does for people who weren't on hold?! My names not on the state website yet and I can't pay for quick results until tomorrow! :uhoh21:

Congrats on getting the good pop-up! You passed!!! It is SO frustrating to not know for sure. All my other friends got the pop up right away, and their names were up on the BON website the next morning. I wonder if mine will end up being delayed until after the weekend now?! Grrrr. :bugeyes:

I appreciate your post because now I know someone else was in the same boat- and ended up with a great result. Congratulations again!

Hey kate811, What time did you check the following day for the good pop-up? Trying to get an idea of what to expect.

Thanks!

I checked around 9:30am (I took the NCLEX yesterday at 8)....and about a trillion times since then just to be sure! Still freaking out a little since everyone else who has taken it from my class has had their name appear on the PA state license website already, and mine still isn't there! Tomorrow I should be able to pay for the quick results, so I'll probably be doing that!

Good luck! Being on "hold" sucked!!

I took my test yesterday at 2pm and the vue said "sucessfully delivered" under the Status heading. I didn't have the opportunity to click yet to get QUICK RESULTS. I checked on the State Board Nursing website and it said I PASSED. Guess I can save the Quick Results FEE. Try going to your state website.

You can try calling PearsonVue tomorrow during business hours if it doesn't convert from hold to delivered. They should be able tell you why your test results are on hold.

Mine were on hold for about an hour, but it turned out the proctor had made an accurate note as to why the double scan (my skin was too dry for the scanner to read so I had to put on some lotion they provided to get an accurate scan, same thing happened when I went to do LiveScan fingerprints).

It could be totally innocent or random (like mine). I'd think you would be aware if you did something that violated the testing center rules :D

I wish I had reached the person you did! My Pearson contact had no idea what to tell me. All he said was that if I don't have results available after 48 hours to call back. I can't believe you actually got someone to tell you why your particular results are on hold. Lucky you! Still waiting it out over here!!!
