Took my NCLEX today got an email that my temporary license is expired

Posted

Hey everybody I was wondering if this has happened to anyone else. I just recently took my NCLEX and I am still waiting for my results.

I did all 130 qs and that was the end of it. I was waiting for my 48 hour period to end but received an email that my temporary nursing license that "emergency graduate licenses "expire automatically upon failure". I was devastated upon reading that and I am just a ball of nerves now. I still have two days to wait for quick results. Can I take this as me not passing?

Maybe it was an email that automatically generates to graduates who have temp licenses and has nothing to do with your results. Try and stay positive!❤❤❤

Before Covid, several states had Graduate Nurse licenses. Those licenses expired once the graduate took NCLEX. It was to be used until the graduate was able to take NCLEX. Once you took NCLEX, you either passed and get your RN license (which you no longer need the GN license) or you failed and no longer qualify for the GN license.

This. The only reason that the state would have to take any action on you temporary license is that they have received your official NCLEX results from NCSBN.

Yeah, don't lose hope, I have had several friends that took the whole 130 questions and passed
