After the Exam
Unofficial and Official Results
If your board of nursing participates in the Quick Results Service*, you can receive your “unofficial” results 48 business hours after the exam. This service is available for $7.95 on the Pearson VUE NCLEX Candidate website.
*only applies to candidates seeking licensure in the U.S.
Official results are ONLY available through your board of nursing/regulatory body (BON/RB) and will be sent to you approximately six weeks after the exam. Do NOT call NCSBN, Pearson VUE NCLEX Candidate Services or the test center for results.
