How to Get the NCLEX Quick Results
1. Pearson VUE Quick Results Service
One of the fastest ways to get your NCLEX quick results is by paying for the Pearson VUE Quick Results service. This service allows test-takers to view their unofficial scores within 48 hours of taking the exam. It costs $7.95 and is available in all states except California, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York, and Washington, D.C.
This service’s accuracy is reliable; however, it is important to remember that these scores are considered unofficial until they have been officially reported by the nursing board or agency responsible for registering nurses in your state or jurisdiction. Therefore, receiving a passing score through Pearson VUE Quick Results Service does not necessarily guarantee that you will pass when your state board of nursing or other licensure agencies releases the official scores.
2. NCSBN Score Verification System (SVS)
Another way to get insight into how well you did on the NCLEX-RN is through NCSBN’s Score Verification System (SVS). This system provides an unofficial indication of whether or not applicants passed their exam based on three levels: Above Passing Standard (APS), Below Passing Standard (BPS), and Close To Passing Standard (CTPS). Typically test takers will receive their SVS report within 24 hours of completing their exam.
The SVS report can provide insight into how close a test taker was to pass his/her exam but should not be used as an indication that they have passed or failed it until they receive their official scores from their state board of nursing or other licensure agencies.
Additionally, it is essential to note that this system is only available for those who took the NCLEX-RN exam; it does not apply to any other type of NCLEX exam, such as PN or CNA.
Getting your NCLEX quick results can help alleviate some of the stress associated with waiting for your official scores from the state board of nursing or other licensure agencies.
Pearson VUE Quick Results service and NCSBN’s Score Verification System (SVS) are the two most reliable methods for doing so. However, both services should be used with caution as they may not accurately reflect an individual’s actual performance on their licensing examination until they receive their official scores from their respective state board or agency responsible for registering nurses in your particular jurisdiction.
As always, follow up with any questions regarding your specific situation with a trusted healthcare professional specializing in licensure examinations like the NCLEX-RN.
