    Pearson Vue Trick 2020

    So if you are wondering if the Pearson Vue trick works? IT DOES! I left the testing center thinking OMG I got questions that were way harder than I expected and thinking what is it asking me exactly, and oh the select all that apply questions that came up! I was panicking, I also found myself answering questions way to fast and thinking, "Am I answering these correctly because I was flying through" only a few I had to read a time or two over. Anyways, I was cut of at 85 and finished the exam in an hour and fifteen minutes. I left there sick! I waited about an hour after I got the email saying my test has been received before deciding to check the "Pearson Vue Trick" and I got the "good pop up" and it said that I was not allowed to schedule this exam because one was previously taken. In about 48 hours, I checked the state site and found that I had passed. Everyone that I went to school with that had tried the trick, and when they got their results in about 48 hours saying they passed. Now, I don't know about false negatives, but I can say that this worked for all of us and turned up to be legit.
  2. Hi Guys, So I decided I would post this to clear up some of the questions I had a hard time finding answers to while I was waiting for my NCLEX results. California does not participate in the 2 day Unofficial Results, so I was staring down a possible 6 weeks of worry. I spent a crazy amount of time trying to make myself feel better by reading posts like these, but while doing so I also came across some bad information that made me freak out. My stats: I was an A-B student in a post-bach 1 year BSN nursing program. I used Uworld to study for 3-4 weeks (YOU SHOULD USE UWORLD!!!!!) On average I was scoring between 50-75 on my quizzes (mostly in the 50's low 60's, which is, FYI, in the 78th percentile). You MUST read the rationales if you get things wrong! This is key. It also helps to read the rationales if you get things right because it'll provide additional information you may not have known. I walked into the NCLEX feeling tentatively confident since I scored in the 92nd percentile on the final two Uworld NCLEX Tests, but that changed about 10 questions into the exam. I walked out feeling like I failed and shitting so many bricks that I could have easily supplied the material to rebuild Pompeii. My test ended on 105. I started to really freak when it didn't shut off at 75 like everyone else in my class told me theirs did. I did NOT get a lot of SATA (maybe 1/5th?), so I was sure I failed since I thought those were the gold standard of hard questions to pass. On the drive home (aside from hyperventilating), I searched my email and got the "Now that you’ve completed the NCLEX Examination..." email that EVERYONE gets. This is not a good or bad email. Everyone gets it. Then I tried the Pearson Vue Trick when I got home about an hr after testing and I got the "good popup" that read "Another registration cannot be made at this time..". Please note: I put in ALL of my correct credit card information except for the expiration date. It will not take fake CC information besides the change in expiration (I tried). I did the Pearson Vue Trick multiple times a day, always getting the same popup. It never charged me, and it made me feel better. In my EXTENSIVE (anxiety-induced) research on the PVT, I did not come across anyone who put in their information correctly (key word is correctly) and got the good pop-up and failed. So no, there are NO FALSE POSITIVES! I DID come across some people who did it correctly and got a "bad popup" and actually found out later they passed, so if you get a bad popup..there is still hope. Ok next, for BREEZE (California) people. Breeze is the FIRST PLACE that will tell you if you passed or not. Not Pearson, and not the BON. Up at the top right corner when you are in your Breeze account it has "License/Registration Information". Your Nursing license number will populate here first and will say "License/Registration Number: #######" and "License/Registration Type - Registered Nurse", once your results have been entered officially. Under the "Manage your license information tab", if you click on the dropdown menu it MAY have populated with an option that says "RN Exam Repeat/Reapply Examination". THIS DOES NOT MEAN YOU FAILED!!! I read a few posts on allnurses that said if this comes up and you don't have an option to pay for your license then its a bad sign and you failed. THIS IS FALSE. I GOT THIS POPUP AND I PASSED. From what I understand, this auto-populates when you finish your exam. Some people don't notice it because they didn't check before their results were entered. If your application still says "Pending" on Breeze, then they have not gotten to your account yet. "Pending" will disappear once they enter your scores in. Don't panic. One more thing - it will do you no good to check your Breeze account a million times a day. From my understanding they input all the scores during the day, and at midnight it goes live. I read this and it was true for me. I checked it last night at 12:15 and my license number appeared in the upper right corner. My number was not there at 11PM. It was also not on the BON. This morning I checked the BON again and my name appears with my license number now. FYI my name never appeared saying "Pending" on the BON. It was not there at all and then suddenly there. I took my test on Friday afternoon 2/1/19 and got my results at midnight the following Monday 2/4/19 (technically Tuesday morning). Takeaway: Pearson Vue Trick Works in 2019!!! "RN Exam Repeat/Reapply Examination" on your Breeze account DOENS'T MEAN YOU FAILED! Hope this clears some things up for someone else in a panic like I was!

    Pearson vue trick results on hold 😳

    I got my att yesterday (Friday June 19th) and scheduled for today (June 20th) at 4pm. Took my exam in about 40 minutes. Shut off at 60 questions. I got the result on hold pop up. Anyone else? I need some emotional support here. I’m freaking out LOL. I took no breaks, didn’t even have a phone in the testing center, didn’t use my white board, No issue with palm scan, and no computer issues. Is this because I am a fast test taker? I’m so stressed out.
  4. I sat for my NCLEX yesterday, and my test shut off at the minimum. I broke down into tears when this happened, not because I thought I failed, but because of the relief of the test being over, mixed with the terror that I could do nothing else but wait. If you would have asked me how I felt leaving the test center, I would have said I felt worried but almost positive that I passed. Knowing me- knowing where I graduated from and the amount of preparation I did, I would have been floored if I had been failed in 60 questions. Now this is where I made a series of mistakes. I began googling things I wasn't sure about, looking on forums and blogs to see if anyone could give me comfort regarding the NCLEX. The more I searched, the more I doubted myself. Then came the dreaded (or beloved) PVT. I followed the directions perfectly, and got a bad popup. I slammed my computer shut and became overcome with anxiety and dread. I started overthinking everything, trying to figure out how I could have been failed in 60 question. To me, it didn't make any sense. But to everyone else on the internet, it was the gold standard of finding out if you passed or failed the test. The remainder of the day was the worst, most anxiety ridden day of my life. I couldn't eat, I couldn't sleep, and even now I still feel sick to my stomach. I woke up this morning and checked my state's BON. And sure enough, my name was there. I PASSED. I know people swear by the PVT, but it is not 100% accurate, I am a testament to that. Please save yourself the anxiety and refrain from doing it. I wish I never had. That 'trick' led me to doubt myself and my abilities, when otherwise I would have still been nervous but I would have been confident that I did well. If you do get the bad pop-up, don't let it define how you view your NCLEX. Logically think through everything you had done in school, how you prepared and answered practice questions. If you are confident in your abilities, then a glitch in a website should not determine how you did on your NCLEX.
  5. Hi all! Just a quick question since I cannot find any posts relating to this. If I type in the INCORRECT expiration/CVC (but correct card #) to do the PVP Trick, will it still process my payment/charge my card if I failed? Thanks in advance! Ed.

    Pearson Vue Trick 2020 - Good pop-up?

    I took my NCLEX-RN yesterday morning 5/30. At first I was relieved when I was stopped at 60 questions, but then once I got to my car I was filled with dread and doubt. I felt like I had guessed on all but 3-4 questions. I wasn’t sure if I was in the higher level difficulty or if I just truly knew nothing. I used the Hurst review to study and found that it helped mostly for the prioritization and delegation questions (which there were a LOT of). I had probably 10-15 SATA. No other alternate formats. I graduated at the top of my class with a 3.92 GPA, and to think that I potentially failed the NCLEX was devastating. My friend took the NCLEX the day before me and had received an email saying “you’ve taken the NCLEX” almost immediately after her exam. I did not, and I was panicking! I walked out of the exam at 9:30 AM, and did not receive this email until around 4:30 PM. When I got home around 1:30, I tried the PVT and got the message saying that I currently have an open registration and I cannot register for another NCLEX — indicating that I tried too early to do this trick. I tried again once I received the email at 4:30... and I got the good pop-up (our records indicate blah blah)!! It was a huge anxiety-reliever for me, but I’m just paranoid that it’s going to turn out wrong. I’ve always done well on my practice exams via the Exit HESI, ATI, PassPoint, and Hurst. To think that after all of that I could have failed the NCLEX breaks my heart. I’m just holding onto the fact that this PVT has worked for nearly everyone... Has anyone gotten got the good pop-up and then ended up failing?
  7. I took my exam 3 days ago in Colorado and it stopped me at the 75th question. After couple hours, it shows result pending. So I had to give it more time. I tried again and I have my license number showing active. I was very happy seeing that but unfortunately, I checked this morning by paying for the unofficial result and it said fail but my license is still saying active. I am wondering if this have ever happened to anyone because I am about to loose my mind.
  8. Hi everyone, yesterday 4-12-20 I took my NCLEX in NY (only place that had availability) I live in Pennsylvania. I walked out of Pearson feeling confident due to finding the questions easy & were pretty much self explanatory..I was confident, UNTIL I walked to my car and first thing I did was wip out an old expired card and do the Pearson Vue trick. I got the BAD POP UP. Almost 24 hours laters and still getting the bad pop up.. I am destroyed and so saddened. I haven’t gotten out of bed since I got home yesterday. Now that I think about it I knew it was too easy to be true I literally only had about 4 SATA and my test cut off at 68 questions.. I’m trying to stay positive but it’s so hard. Any ideas if PVT is actually 100% accurate did I do it too soon?

    Pearson Vue Trick was WRONG

    Hi everyone, I felt I had to post this!! I took my NCLEX on Tuesday and left feeling super down, I literally felt confident about maybe 20 questions. I cried A LOT and was pretty sure I failed. I did the Pearson Vue trick no less than 1000 times and got the “bad pop up” every time. I read post after post about how the trick is supposedly 99.9% accurate which made me even more depressed. I was already looking into which cities I could travel to to attend an in-person NCLEX review! Checked my state’s BON website this morning and low and behold my name popped up under RN license verification! So the Pearson Vue trick was wrong! I followed all of the specific instructions and never once got the good pop up. If the trick works for you and you get a good pop up CONGRATS! I don’t think I’ve ever read about anyone getting a false positive so the good pop seems to be pretty accurate. If you get the bad pop up though don’t worry, the trick is not guaranteed. Pearson Vue should honestly look into the little trick because it just adds to everyone’s anxiety and is really just a weird site error that should not be used to check NCLEX results. Good luck y’all and feel free to ask me anything! 🙂

    NCLEX-PN, PVT “Results on hold”

    Hello everyone, I hope someone can answer my questions and give some peace of mind. I took my NCLEX-PN on Friday, 4/3/2020, got cutoff at 60 questions. With the whole coronavirus pandemic, they made some changes to the minimum and max cutoff numbers with 60 minimum and max 130. So I got the minimum cutoff. When I did the PVT about 2 hrs later and after receiving the email, it told me my results where on hold. So no answers there. I waited til today, Sunday, to try and do the quick results since they now offer it in California. Still says they have not received my results. I’m so anxious and I need to know my results! It’s a horrible feeling having to wait. Can I not access my results because it’s Sunday? I read on other forums that people are able to see their quick results on Sundays. Is it because of my hold? And how long can the hold last? I didn’t have any complications with my palm scan, that I know of, and I don’t think I finished too quick. I did the 60 questions in a little over an hour. I just need some peace of mind and some rest. Thank you to anyone who can give some answers and sorry for it being so long.

    When to do Pearson VUE Trick?

    So I just took my NCLEX today at 12pm and finished around 1pm. I got the standard email saying “Now that’s you’ve taken NCLEX” about an hour later. I was wondering when I can do the Pearson VUE trick? Also can someone please explain how to the trick? Thank you in advance!

    PVT changes

    Hello everyone, So I finally sat for my exam on Friday at 4PM. Testing all 130 questions and had 2 minutes left when I finished. And so my story begins... I received an email from Pearson saying the usual “now that you’ve taken the test...” I tried to do the PVT trick using an accurate card number but incorrect expiration/cvc entries. My card got declined. I decided to leave it alone and read blogs and posts about the PVT. Fast forward to last night, 26 hours after my test ended, I did the trick again. I got so excited to see the good pop up! It gave me some relief. Now today, I woke up early and anxious. I told myself to do the PVT trick again and so I succumbed to it. Now, the screen totally changed. I no longer see the “our records indicate...” pop up but actually allowing me to reregister even with incorrect credit card information. At this point, my anxiety is through the roof. I don’t know what to make of this. I will just wait and see when I pay for my quick results tonight. Anyway, I have read a lot of entries in blogs and forums about the “good pop up” but haven’t really ran across something like mine. Hopefully I still passed and this is just a glitch. I took screenshots. See below. Sending out good vibes to everyone. Happy Sunday!
  13. Hey guys! Just took my exam about two hours ago, and when I tried the PVT trick I got a message that was like "your results are on hold". What does that mean??? I had 75 questions and about 20-30 SATA questions, but at the end I had a bunch of "Who would you see first questions" Help please!! I don't know waht this means and it's driving me crazy:(

    Pearson Vue Trick 2014 New Interface

    I just took my NCLEX PN in the state of California. I attempted the Pearson Vue "Trick" and entered all my info: if I've taken the NCLEX before, what school, date graduated. I did not get the "good pop up" when I hit the submit button. I was directed to enter my CC info and once I hit submit I got the message in red as follows: I've seen on a couple of websites that this is the new Pearson Vue Interface effective Aug 27, 2014. I was wondering if anyone else had this same thing happen and if they passed the NCLEX PN?

    Hello. I took my test 6/23/15 @ 1pm. 75 questions. Bunch of SATA and priority questions and got the good pop up. Do I need to wait 48 hours to see if I passed or not? Help is greatly appreciated
  17. Hi everyone! So I’m new to this and I just need to vent because I am going CRAZY! Due to COVID19 the amount of questions on the NCLEX has been changed. I took my test this morning at 1100. This is my third time taking it. I did all 130 questions which is the max. Amount of questions at the moment. My last question was a SATA. most of the questions were SATA and prioritization!! I left the testing site not knowing what to feel 🥺 Of course I tried the PVT trick with the wrong exp date and security number .... and got the bad pop up 😭💔 I don’t know what to think... but this sure is heartbreaking. Does this mean I for sure failed or I just need to put the correct cc info and try again ? 😞
  18. Hi all! I tested Friday at 11:30am EST for NCLEX-RN... It is now 11:48 on Sunday and I still don't have quick results available!!! Is it just not before 48 hours or can it take longer? I'm freaking out as this is MAJOR! I tried the PVT and got the good pop-up 2, 6 and 24+ hours after testing... What was your experience? Did it take longer than 48 hours to get your quick results??

    Pearson vue trick

    I turned to this website/threads when I was struggling with the ever so dreaded NCLEX... And I would just like to say that as an official RN now , the Pearson Vue "trick" that everyone knows about DID NOT work for me. I took the NCLEX on July 8th... 237 questions (I was dying). I did this "trick" for the remainder of the day, and constantly got the "bad pop up". I was completely devastated... This was my second time taking the boards. I cried myself to sleep that night, and even contemplated on what career to pursue now.. "what will I do now?! I'm never going to pass." The one & only reason why I even checked my results the following day was because a co-worker harassed me ALL day to check. I said to myself "there's no way I passed. I failed. I don't even want to see the word FAIL."..... And there it was "PASS". I still can't believe it. BUT, this is for the people constantly arguing the point "does the Pearson vue trick really work?". NO - it did not work for me. After going through all of those emotions for 24 hours, I'm hoping this helps someone that might be put in the same situation one day. Don't trust it!!! I wish I would've never even attempted it that day, to save myself the devastation, but at least now I can say that I'm officially an RN now, and the hard work has finally paid off! Don't give up!!!

    Pearson VUE trick 2017 CALIFORNIA

    Does it still work as of September 2017?? Please help!! I can't ease my anxiety... and it's only been 3 days. I wish I lived in a different state so I could pay for quick result! But California doesn't participate.. so please help. 😭
  21. I took the test Nclex-RN yesterday and OH MY. I felt like I had never gone to nursing school. I was hoping it would shut off at 75 but it kept rolling. When I started hitting 120...130 I started to tear up and am certain I was not successful. Finally in the 150's it shut down. I bolted out of there and cried my eyes out. I know that the PVT isnt reliable and I will only know my results when the BON posts "Active" (or not) Pearson Vue told me they do NOT process tests on the weekends. I tried the trick and it will not let me register for another exam and says "delivery successful". However, could that just be because its the weekend and the tests havent been processed yet? I start my new job Monday. I wont know until that day, while Im working, what the results are. I am a mess. I have NEVER taken such a difficult test in my life. So much for the advice that the test is "basic". I got a TON of "check all that apply". Ugh!
  22. Well I haven't gotten my result yet and I tried the trick and it lets me pay and went all the way to almost to confirm my order but I didn't ... Does this mean that I failed the NCLEX-PN?? Can someone help me please? I am scared and I can't sleep now. I have another week or two wait for my result ... I stopped at 85. Does this mean I failed the exam? Please help Thanks Here are the exact steps to see if you passed or failed the nclex exam on the Pearsonvue web site: 1) go to NCLEX Examinations :: Pearson VUE. 2) select the 'test taker services' tab at the top. 3) click 'register' on the right side. 4) click the 'credit card' link. 5) click the 'sign in' link in the second sentence. 6) enter your username. 7) enter your password. 😎 click the button. 9) click 'register' on the left side. 10) select your test type. 11) click the button. 12) select your country. 13) click the button. 14) answer the yes/no questions. 15) select your country again. 16) select your state. 17) type in your city. 18) click the button. a list of schools should appear. 19) select your school. 20) select the month and year of your graduation. 21) select your board of nursing. 22) click the button. Very important: At this point, if you get a pop up that says 'the candidate currently has test results that are on hold. A new registration cannot be created at this time.', it has nothing to do with passing or failing; it just means that they are reviewing your records due to random reviews that they conduct, or because they needed to locate some data or papers, etc. This means you will possibly have to wait a few more days than your friends who did not get this message. If you get the message 'our records indicate that you have recently scheduled this exam. Please contact your member board for further assistance. another registration cannot be made at this time.', that means you passed. If you do not get either message and go straight to the credit card information page, that means you did not pass. Your Pearsonvue account must state that delivery is successful before you try the trick

    How to Get NCLEX Results

    1. The Famous Pearson Vue Trick I tried this trick and it worked for me (So far, I have not heard that this trick was inaccurate) The link below will provide you step by step on how to do the Pearson Vue trick. Basically, if you get this pop-up message, "Our records indicate that you have recently scheduled this exam. Please contact your Member Board for further assistance. Another registration cannot be made at this time," then you PASSED the NCLEX. If you did not pass, then it will take you to the credit card page which lets you register for the exam again. I tried this trick about 4 hours after completing my NCLEX and it worked. *Make sure your Pearson account page state "Delivery Successful" before you try the trick* 2. Calling the Automated License # I called this # about 24 hours after the completion of my NCLEX and my results were already up. If you PASS, it will say, "First Name, Last Name, For the occupation registered nurse, your license status is: current active ..." It will also tell you when your license was issued and when it will expired. (For some people, their results are not up until a few days later, especially if you used your driver's license # to register for BON instead of your SSN). Remember, your results may take longer to be available so don't freak out! 3. Board of Nursing (VIRGINIA) My results was up on the website the next day, but it usually takes between 2-4 days. However, it has taken up to 1-2 weeks for some people. (The website is usually slower than the Automated License #). This is the VA BON license verification link: https://www.license.dhp.virginia.gov/license/ The page should show your name, license number, profession (nursing), license type, issue date, expire date, and license status (current active) OR Virginia DHP Health Professional Data Services! (For me, my name and license number did not show up until about 5 days later)

    Got the "good" pop up and failed. #PVT

    Sooooo.... I tested on the 18th of March and walked out feeling terrible. This was the second time I've tested btw... So I tried the "PVT" and on the site it said "delivery successful". I tried to reregister and got the "good" pop up. Something like,"you can not register at this time, our records indicate you have previously taken this exam. Please contact you BON..." I'm freaking out. When I tested the first time and failed, it took me straight to the cc screen. So this time when I tried the trick and got the pop up I was for sure that I passed, got my quick results today and found out that I failed. I've never heard of this. What do I do!?

    Pearson Vue trick

    Hey Everyone! I did my NCLEX yesterday at 8:00 am and I had 255 questions. I remember, some of my questions especially those at the end were easier. I tried Pearson Vue trick after 3 hours. It displayed the message " records indicate that you have recently scheduled this exam. Another registration cannot be made at this time". Then it says your account is on hold. So, I signed out and after signing in , again tried to register. It allowed me to register and I received an acknowledgement first and then a receipt saying that your order is processed.... I'm so heart-broken and just waiting for tomorrow to access the quick results. Any thoughts???
