How To Prep For Pearson VUE NCLEX

There are a few things you will want to do before you take the test. First, review the candidate bulletin so you are familiar with the testing format.

Next, you’ll need to locate your test site. Do this early, because testing sites tend to fill up quickly.
Finally, you’ll want to study and prepare for the test. You can do this a few different ways. Kaplan nursing offers a study-course to prepare you for the test. They even offer a free practice quiz.

Of course Pearson VUE – the place that makes the test – produces  their own study book too.  It is priced below the Kaplan Nursing course. Since it’s published by the test creators themselves, you know it will prepare you effectively.

NCLEX Trick: See If You Passed

What is the NCLEX Trick?

There was a rumor going around that if you wait 2 hours after taking the NCLEX, then try to register for it again, you’ll know if you passed by if your payment goes through. So if it accepts your payment and allows you to register again, it means you failed. But if it gives you a pop-up saying, “another registration cannot be made at this time” then you passed.

Does the NCLEX Trick still work?

There are a couple of things to keep in mind: your charge will go through a second time. So you have to decide if it is worth another charge to find out in 2 hours if you passed. The fee is non-refundable.

Also, this isn’t a guarantee that it will work. It’s rumored that it does work, but there are reports of false negatives (the charge going through even though they passed).  Some people wait 24 hours and the trick works better.

There you have it! Study tips and how to prepare for the NCLEX on Pearson VUE.  I hope this information was helpful. Please pin it so you can refer to it later when you need it. Share this post with your nursing friends and nursing students.

Scheduling

Please Note:

Due to high call center volume, it is recommended that you schedule your NCLEX with Pearson VUE online . 

Scheduling Options

You may not schedule your exam appointment until you have received an Authorization to Test (ATT) . Please note, the ATT will only be sent to the email address you provided when registering.

Waiting to call to schedule an exam appointment may significantly limit the selection of dates from which you can choose to schedule. Additionally, if you wait until your ATT is close to expiring, test centers may not be able to seat you prior to its expiration. If this occurs, you will be required to reregister and pay another exam fee.

First-time test takers will be offered an appointment within 30 days of the request to schedule an appointment. Repeat candidates will be offered an appointment within 45 days. If you wish, you may decline the appointment offered and schedule later than the 30 or 45 days. If your first-choice date or time is unavailable, you will be offered an alternative as close to your first choice as possible.

Scheduling Via the Internet

  • Visit the Pearson VUE website  
  • Sign in using the username and password (created when registering) 
  • Request preference for date and time of testing at the preferred test center

Scheduling Via the Telephone

Scheduling at an International Test Center

  • You can schedule an appointment for an international test center either online or over the phone by contacting Pearson VUE  NCLEX Candidate Services . 

  • You will be charged an additional, non-refundable fee and value added tax (if applicable) at the time of scheduling.

After you schedule your appointment, you will be sent a Confirmation of Appointment from Pearson VUE. First, verify that all information is correct. Then, call or go online to check that your appointment has been scheduled/rescheduled. If you do not receive a confirmation every time that you schedule or reschedule an appointment, contact Pearson VUE NCLEX Candidate Services immediately to correct any errors to the appointment.

The NCLEX® Examination

Under the guidance of its membership, the National Council of State Boards of Nursing, Inc. (NCSBN®) develops and administers two nurse licensure examinations; the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN®) and the National Council Licensure Examination for Practical Nurses (NCLEX-PN®)*. These two examinations are used by the Boards of Nursing/Regulatory Bodies to test entry-level nursing competence of candidates for licensure/registration as Registered Nurses and as Licensed Practical/Vocational Nurses*. The NCLEX examinations are provided exclusively as computerized adaptive tests.

Beginning in July, 2017, NCSBN will present a Special Research Section as part of the NCLEX-RN administration. By participating in the Special Research Section, candidates will be making valuable contributions to the future development of NCSBN examinations as well as to the enhancement of the nursing profession.

The Special Research Section will be given to select candidates taking the NCLEX-RN and will take approximately 30 minutes to complete. This section will be administered following the regular exam and will not count as part of the NCLEX score.

Once a candidate finishes their exam, an introductory screen will indicate the beginning of the Special Research Section. This section will also continue to be numbered in accordance with the completed exam – for example, if a candidate’s exam ended with question 153, the first question on the Special Research Section will be numbered 154. Despite the consecutive numbering, these new questions will have no impact on NCLEX scoring or results.

Candidates may take the entire allotted 6 hours to complete the NCLEX. All questions on the NCLEX-RN examination and the Special Research Section are confidential.

Attention: Please make sure that you check your spam and junk folders as it is possible that any of the communications from Pearson VUE could automatically go to one of these folders.

Change Board/Body Test Type or Exam Language

Requests to change the Board of Nursing/Regulatory Body must be made through customer service and will result in a $50 fee. In addition, any requests to change an examination type* will result in a $50 change fee. Finally, any requests to change the examination language** type will also result in a $50 change fee.

Testing Internationally

Candidates who would like to test internationally are required to pay an international scheduling fee of $150 plus a Value Added Tax (VAT) where applicable. Candidates may schedule online and pay the fee. In order to make any adjustments to already scheduled international appointments, you must contact Pearson VUE’s customer service for assistance.
