    According to the Kaplan books, it says 91 days. I've tried to confer this on the PA BON website, but was unsuccessful.

    But according to the NCSBN website, it states:

    The NCSBN retake policy allows candidates to retake their examination 45 days after administration of their examination. Candidates who have applied for licensure with a participating board of nursing will be permitted to take the NCLEX examination eight times a year, but no more than once in any 45-day period, unless limited to fewer retakes by the desired jurisdiction of licensure.
    Note: The following boards of nursing do NOT participate in the 45-day retake period. Candidates are encouraged to contact these boards of nursing for their policy on NCLEX Examination retakes: Georgia-RN, Guam, and Washington.

    So I'm not sure. Maybe you should try calling the PA Board of Nursing or email them at
