Pearson Vue trick doesn't work anymore

Updated | Posted

I took my NCLEX PN 3 weeks ago and I got the 205 questions and I was sitting there for the entire 5 hours. The longest and most painful 5 hours of my life. I walked out of the Gardena center in Los Angeles (it is the center that is known for very few people passing) in devastation. I was shaking so bad that I couldn't even drive. I was sitting in my car for a while before I could feel my arms and legs. The questions were horrible. the test kept throwing the same questions at me. I got a lot of infection control and a lot of respiratory and metabolic acidosis I knew I had failed. I get home text my instructor, he says do the Pearson Vue trick. I did and it said I could take the test again and it gave me the credit card page. He said for sure I had failed. My supervisor at work said I can check the license online and I kept checking and NOTHING would come up with my name. I told everyone that I didn't pass. I went to see a therapist to manage my anxiety and stress levels.

I started studying again. Started from chapter one within the three weeks that I received my results I took more than 1000 questions. I cried my eyes out. After three weeks the letter came to mail and I PASSED. I PASSED. I can't imagine myself happier than this. I had told everyone that I had failed and now I had to explain to everybody about the PEARSON trick.

Don't lose hope. The trick doesn't work or at least here in CA. The license will not be issued because you have to pay and sign a release of information before they make your info public.

JUST WAIT for the board to send you the results.

Good Luck to all of you wherever you are.

thread moved for best response....this has been heavily discussed since the PV site update a few weeks ago.

I'm sorry what you went through but the pvt has changed. Everyone goes to the credit card page as of August 24, 2014? You had to input your card info and press sumbit.

But why do I keep reading ppl say they use their state site to see if there name appear or not I don't recall anyone saying that have to sign a info release form???

so I guess I have to wait another week I thought letter comes within 2 weeks....

Btw I also use up like 4 hours with 205 question, one of the most painful hours of my life :(

I took my RN exam on July 23rd. I had a little more than 150 questions. I strongly felt I had failed. I wasn't going to put myself through doing the PVT but, the morning after taking the exam, I couldn't stand it anymore. It took me to the cc page as everyone is describing with the "new" PVT but I stopped there and decided to wait another day instead and pay for the quick results. I passed and the relief I felt was indescribable. I got my letter in the mail from the BON less than a week later but my license did not post to their site for almost a month, which is common in my state. All I can say is, I'm very glad this is behind me. I wish I hadn't gone to the PV site to do the trick, though. It made the stress worse from that moment to the next day when I did the quick results and saw that I had passed.

I cant believe people who passed the nclex are too dumb to think that "they passed the nlcex" with the trick put them on the CC page! Listlen up yo people. Do more research things have change. Everyone goes to cc page now. And for you to see if you pass or fail, youll have to input your cc info and Hit SUBMIT! Duh!

Dont be like the pvt trick doesnt work for everyone cuz i pass with the CC page. It cracks me up. These people probably think it was a miracle. Hahahaha. This is just my opinion! No haters

Lol I just think people don't bother to read any of the post.

It's just more risky, the PVT trick

Hi! I saw you posted on some of the websites! I know you took the exam on September 4. I'm in Cali too and wondering if you received yours yet! Pls keep me updated cause I tried the same thing you did and got the good pop up! I'm from NorCal though! It would be nice to know it from someone on the same boat! Its gonna be the third week this week so hoping ill receive something this week!

Ladies and gentlemen, I am proof positive that the Pearson Vew Trick does not work. I took the NCLEX-PN yesterday, finishing after 80 questions. I was terrified and sure I had failed. I read about the Pearson View Trick and tried it. I went through the full registration and even registered to take the exam again. According to everything I had read here, I had failed the exam. I was distraught. I called a friend. She told me not to worry about it. She had just been to a nursing conference, during which a Pearson rep told her that the trick has been disabled and is no longer an accurate means of telling whether or not you have passed the exam. I didn't want to believe her, so I continued to believe that I had failed. Today another friend told me to check the Arizona Board of Nursing website to see if I was listed there--and actual, reliable method of verifying if I had passed or not. Guess what! According to the Arizona Board of Nursing, I passed, and I am now a Licensed Practical Nurse. Of course, I'm out $200 thanks to the misinformation on this site, but I passed!

Does the trick work using a $5 Visa gift card? I wouldn't try it with my real cards and be out all that money

I used an American Express gift card that had $1.50 on it and it worked for me

Pretty sure I responded to this on another thread you posted this information on, but it's worth putting here as someone might only read THIS of yours, and make the same mistake you did.

There is about a ton of misinformation, but there is also very valuable information; one has to read carefully to separate the two.

Many, many threads all over this board tell people to wait a full 24 HOURS before doing the PVT, and to NOT do it within hours of the exam. AT that point, your exam has not been scored twice, as required; you DO run the risk of paying $200 for nothing. Non-refundable, I might add.

If you did the PVT less than 24 hours after completion of your exam.....and it appears you did, from what you posted.....you simply did not do it correctly. If you had, you would have waited 24 hours, would have found you could not register again (and saved yourself $200) and that would have been that. As it stands, I'm sorry but you jumped the gun :(

As for the PV rep, I literally have to LOL as they are instructed to deny that this thing even EXISTS, let alone that it's relatively useful! It's nothing more than a by-product of their registration software, people, not a bonafide anything. I also tell people, all the time, that it is NOT 100% reliable, but since August (when they "fixed the problem" ;) ) it's as reliable as it ever was. Meaning, "if you do it right"! It was NEVER "an accurate means of telling whether or not you passed"!

PV is in the business of selling testing appointments. They also are in the business of selling Quick Results for a (very tiny) fee. Eight bucks for official results. They want zero culpability for people declaring "I want my money back, THE TRICK didn't work", etc etc etc....obviously.

Just an FYI this trick does not work anymore in California just wait for your results I talked to a rep at Pearson vue and they updated the whole thing so people won't do that also California does not take part in quick results for what ever reason

I feel dumb.

The PVT "works" as well (or as poorly) as it ever did, INCLUDING California. No idea what someone you spoke with told you, as 'the trick' is not sanctioned by anyone.....so the Pearson Vue rep isn't going to tell you anything valid about it!

FWIW, I think Californians are probably the largest group playing the PVT, as they DON'T have Quick Results in that State. But it doesn't 'not work' in CA.....that's nonsense.
