How long after passing NCLEX did your license # appear on the NYS BON site?

  1. Good night ladies and gentlemen,

    I took my NCLEX exam today. I walked out of the center feeling like a failure , but after reading the forums, I decided to try the Pearsonvue Trick (PVT). I got the "good" pop up. Since this isn't 100%, I will pay to view my Quick Results when it is available. My question is, how long after passing the NCLEX did your license # appear on the NYS BON website? To me, this is the only REAL confirmation of a passing score .

    Seven agonizing days! I took the test on a Tues, my friend the following Thurs. Her license posted on a Monday, 4 days after the exam, while mine posted the next day on Tues. Go figure!
    We tested at the same testing center too.

    Dont wory about failure. I do not know a single nurse who passed and walked out of there not feeling like they failed me included. I thought for sure I failed I even went so far as to get my old CNA job back. I was so happy to hear I pased.

    Thank You "gmkj". Right now, I am just preparing myself for the interview. I have to be prepared for ANY question that I may be presented with, and that has me worried. I hate being placed in the "hot seat" (interviewing & public speaking). I am a shy individual . If the interview is successful, I will have to take a pharmacology exam. I've decided to get a head start by studying for the pharm exam before hand.

    Are you talking about an exam for your employer. If so I would not worry they are usually very easy and sometimes they even give them to you to take home to do.

    Yes, I was referring to the pharm exam provided by my prospective employer. If they ask about common drugs, i should be ok. Thanks for the advice "gmkj".

    It is mostly dosage calculations not so much about the drugs themselfs. But you never know it could be so yea I suggest you study the common drugs.What type of nursing do you want to do. Hospital, hospice, geriatrics...

    I would like to work in a hospital. I originally wanted to work in the NICU, and i still do (next 5 years or so), however, I had a great experience in on a cardiac stepdown unit. The nurses and the manager liked me and I felt comfortable there. I will be interviewing for a position on the unit.
