im posting because im 5hrs shy of the 48hrs waiting period to get the the quick results I took my test, RN nclex on 1/21/15, I did the PVT trick it let me register and pay; however i'm praying to God that the trick is false so that either way it can ease the minds of those waiting, by chance I did pass I will be taking donations on behalf of being the idiot who didn't trust God, but a computer and a trick....im so nervous being crying since I did this so call trick, I also had only had 80 something questions before the computer shut off

I took the NCLEX on the same day as you, and am still waiting for the official results. I tried the PVT numerous times since then, but I receive the "good" pop-up. After reviewing many of the forums on the site, I have noticed that the PVT does not work for everyone. Hopefully you are one of the cases and that you passed. Good luck!

The PVT works if it is done correctly. Typically, those who declare 'it didn't work for me' didn't actually do it right, so.....there you have it.

Twenty-four hours after completion of your exam is the time to do the PVT. Not an hour after, not 15 hours after. It's 24 hours after. By then, your exam will have been scored two times; ALL EXAMS are scored two times.

If you did it too early, after only one score is complete, and you are able to pay $$ for another test, all you know is you failed the first scoring. If your second scoring is ALSO a fail, well, no harm done as you'd have to pay for another test anyway.

However, if your first score was a fail (and you paid) and your SECOND score was a PASS, you will have blown $200 foolishly. This is why we keep telling people to just WAIT 24 HOURS and then do this silly trick!

If I'm understanding what you wrote correctly, you did the PVT 43 hours after your test ("5 hours shy of 48 hours"...?). If that's the case, and you paid for another test at the 43-hour mark.....yes, you failed.

If you did the PVT prior to 24 hours' passing, and you paid, you won't know anything either way until you get official results now.

This cannot be true for everyone because the BON in Nevada posts licenses within 24 hours of taking the exam. So the 24 hour rule does not apply all the time. People who tested at 2pm had their license posted on the BON website by noon the next day.

Ok I apologize for doing this because I've read basically everything and from what I understand I'm doing this right BUT I have a position in a nurse residency and I'm basically dry heaving imagining calling them to tell them I failed.

I took the NCLEX 1/22. I knew the trick existed but didn't know much about it so I tried it way too soon. I got the "good" pop up but after researching extensively (thank you RNsRWe!) I did it again today to make sure it hadn't changed. At this point it has been 30 hours since I walked out of the exam and I am still getting the "good" pop up. Is it fairly safe to say I passed??

I realize that it must be annoying to have every graduate in the world post this but I would so appreciate someone answering me because knowing I have this job and imagining losing it is torture!

I am sorry to hear you failed. I am only saying I do not know that the 24 hour wait time is valid. Only because in Nevada if you pass your license will post to the BON website before the 24 hour deadline people are talking about is up.

I think you're confusing two different processes: How the BoN goes about getting you a license, and what the PVT is.

The State BoN is notified immediately after BOTH sets of scores are complete. Whenever they receive this notification, the BoN can then act--either issuing a license, OR denying one. They may receive notice if the scores are done after 16 hours, or 22 hours....you get the idea.

However, since MOST BoN websites don't post this information update QUITE as quickly as you've seen, and it isn't to be expected, doing the PVT once 24 hours passes at least ensures that BOTH sets of scores are actually done. If someone does the PVT at the 12 hour mark, for instance, they may or may not be seeing the real result. But once PV submits to the BoN....it's done.

Does that help clarify it?
