My name is Julia and I just graduated from nursing school and I am new to this site. I have a question that hopefully somebody can answer. I take the NCLEX on Friday and was wondering when you receive the results? I don't know if it varies from state to state, but I am in NY. By Sunday I will be pulling my hair out, and by Monday 50% of any sanity that I had will be lost. In addition, I begin working on June 12 in the CCU and I think it would be nice to know whether I will be a GN or an RN. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

NYS participates in the Quick Results program through Pearson-Vue. Meaning, 48 hours after the completion of your exam, you should be able to access a "pass" or "fail" notice on the website. In some states, people have accessed the information in 24 hours, but I don't believe that to be the case in NY--as far as I know, it's still 48.

As for the June 12 start date, either you WILL be an RN because you have passed the licensure exam (and within days or a week get a number) OR you will NOT be a GN, because that status is for those who have not yet attempted the NCLEX-RN. You cannot work as a GN if you have failed the NCLEX; it is not legally permissible.

Some facilities have contingency plans for new grads who they've employed and subsequently have failed; usually they can work as a tech until re-taking (and passing) the exam again.
