Hi Ianmolay, first off, I know that not passing the NCLEX is hard to handle, I had passed on my third attempt. It was good to hear that you picked yourself up right away and started the process of registering again. You did not waste your money, don't worry. The same thing happened to a friend of mine. He registered first on pearsonvue, but then wasn't able to schedule a test date. He found out that he needed to send in his re-application form to BON of California first, and once they received his application they would send the information to Pearsonvue and that would be when he would be able to schedule. I hope this helps, and please let us know how you do! :)

You still have to pay pearsonvue their fee again as each fee is only good for one attempt but you will also as mentioned have to pay the state fee as well
