The Pearson VUE Trick for NCLEX

Okay. I was going to keep quiet about this until after I had seen the results tomorrow but Scrub Ninja [from *Trust Me, I'm Almost a Nurse*...And he actually is a nurse now! Yay!] mentioned it in a comment on my last post so I decided to talk about it.

The Pearson VUE Trick. [dun, dun, dun!!!...that was dramatic music for effect.]

Nursing students are not known for being the most patient people. We want to know what we made on an exam the second we walk out of the lecture hall. We want the grade for our careplans yesterday...even though they weren't due until today. We've been known to harass instructors for midterm grades or clinical evals...
And when it comes to something as big as being licensed for practice, the wait for the results can be torture.

Basically, after you finish taking the NCLEX [I believe it works for RN as well as PN], you try to register for the exam again [as if you think you failed it]. If you are taken to the credit card information screen to pay for the exam...that's a bad sign.
But if you get a pop-up saying "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," break out the party poppers and celebratory tequila because you passed, baby!!
At least that is what everyone I have talked to says.

Wanna guess which one I got?
There's the screen-shot.

Full explanation of the Pearson VUE trick can be found on the AllNurses forum. Oh, look. Here is the link it. I am too good to y'all. ;)

Until next time, my darling readers.

Of course let’s not forget that simply as important in order to success is the keeping of portfolios as well as timely documentation detailing all the training as well as education received throughout the medical career.
