Hello! I took my RNC-NIC this morning and I am anxiously awaiting my results... they said 15 business days but I was wondering if anyone who has taken the test recently had gotten them any sooner? ❤️ much love

I thought that you were supposed to get unofficial results right after the test? I know that's what happened when I took RNC-NIC in 2011 and my NNP boards (same company) in 2014. One of the nurses I work with also recently took the low risk RNC a few months ago and found out immediately too. It's actually kind of awkward because you finish the test and then you tell the front desk person who then prints out the result to hand it to you, so not anonymous. I'm told they're not supposed tell you or give you a reaction but I remember being so nervous and watching the lady walk the 50 miles towards me with my head down and her saying, "oh you passed, don't worry." LOL!!

I got a print out right after the test, but I've heard that they've stopped doing that now. Not official news, just what others have told me.

hmm...maybe it's related to the Covid-19 pandemic to keep social distancing. I get it...but that would drive me crazy.

Hi there did you have to wait 15+ days!?!!

This just happened To me this morning and I thought it was a fluke because other nurses I work with took it recently within the last 2-3 months and they received their results right away.

I think Coronavirus has changed how NCC is doing things. They used to give out results right away, but aren't anymore (at least for right now). I took my NNP certification exam through NCC on a Saturday in June and found out a few days later on Wednesday. I didn't get an email from them for a few days after that, though. I just went on the NCC website Wednesday morning and saw that I passed. Several of my classmates also found out they passed the same day even though we took the test on different days, so I think NCC updates their website on Wednesdays. So, just keep checking the website and hopefully you'll find out soon!
