    Nclex PN Quick Results on a Sunday???

    yes, the Quick Results are available on weekends and holidays. I know they say business days but this is not the case. I got my results on a Sunday and I have many friends and classmates who got theirs on weekends as well as holidays. Did you check?
  8. A simple, thank you for the offer but I have decided not to take the position. Why did you waste your time to fill out an application as well as interview if you had no intention of working sub-acute? Just curious.

    What exactly is the NCLEX?

    1. Is it similar to the NREMT exam? In terms of grading or what...? I've taken the NREMT and the NCLEX. They are similar in the sense that they are both testing to see your competency. They are both multiple choice. I took the NREMT back in 2001 and ...
