Pearson Vue Trick 2020 - Good pop-up?

Updated | Posted

Specializes in Pediatrics.

I took my NCLEX-RN yesterday morning 5/30. At first I was relieved when I was stopped at 60 questions, but then once I got to my car I was filled with dread and doubt. I felt like I had guessed on all but 3-4 questions. I wasn’t sure if I was in the higher level difficulty or if I just truly knew nothing. I used the Hurst review to study and found that it helped mostly for the prioritization and delegation questions (which there were a LOT of). I had probably 10-15 SATA. No other alternate formats. I graduated at the top of my class with a 3.92 GPA, and to think that I potentially failed the NCLEX was devastating.

My friend took the NCLEX the day before me and had received an email saying “you’ve taken the NCLEX” almost immediately after her exam. I did not, and I was panicking! I walked out of the exam at 9:30 AM, and did not receive this email until around 4:30 PM.

When I got home around 1:30, I tried the PVT and got the message saying that I currently have an open registration and I cannot register for another NCLEX — indicating that I tried too early to do this trick.

I tried again once I received the email at 4:30... and I got the good pop-up (our records indicate blah blah)!! It was a huge anxiety-reliever for me, but I’m just paranoid that it’s going to turn out wrong.

I’ve always done well on my practice exams via the Exit HESI, ATI, PassPoint, and Hurst. To think that after all of that I could have failed the NCLEX breaks my heart. I’m just holding onto the fact that this PVT has worked for nearly everyone... Has anyone gotten got the good pop-up and then ended up failing?

CONGRATS, You passed.

Thank you, I hope so!! I’ll post an update when my quick results come in 🙂

Check your BON before paying for quick results, my license appeared on the BON before the 48 hours.

What state are you in? I’m in Louisiana, which uses the “nursys” website for license verification. I’m not sure if other state boards list directly on their website. So far nothing’s up on there, but I will keep checking!

I'm in NC. My license posted to the BON and nursys site about the same time for me, which was before the 48 hours for quick results.

Oh okay awesome!! I’ll keep checking! Thank you 🙂

I am basically you, down to the stats and the good pop-up. I took my NCLEX Thursday evening and my quick results were a pass! I've never read a first hand account of the good pop-up not reflecting a pass, but I understand it's so hard to feel like you've made it until you see the words straight from Pearsonvue themselves.

I'm in NC, too, and my quick results were up Saturday night for my test Thursday night, but my license is still pending exam review. It probably has more to do with being over a weekend, though.

That gives me hope 😄 Thank you for your input and congratulations!! I think I’ll continue to be dubious until I see that direct result haha!
