How long does it take to receive the candidate performance report (CPR) email if you fail the NCLEX?



We have been asked a bunch about how long the candidate performance report (CPR) email takes to be sent to you if fail the NCLEX, and we couldn’t get enough feedback from users to say definitively, so we reached out to the National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN), and this is what they told us:

The Candidate Performance Report (CPR) is an individualized, two-page document providing candidates information regarding their performance within the eight NCLEX Test Plan content areas. Candidates can use the CPR as a guide to prepare to retake the exam. Candidates who pass the NCLEX will not receive a CPR.

The CPR is sent with NCLEX official results from the board of nursing/regulatory body (BON/RB), which may take up to six weeks to receive. For questions about the CPR, candidates should contact their BON/RB.

So while getting a CPR is a sure sign that you have not passed your NCLEX, the odds are that you will have your NCLEX results in before this is sent. Therefore, it is probably not too important when trying the Pearson Vue Trick (PVT) since most people are using this trick to get early results before their board releases them usually within a few business days in many states.
