We have been asked a bunch about how long the candidate performance report (CPR) 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.
We know that results will vary by state, and the NCSBN’s range of up to 6 weeks is probably much longer than most people will have to wait.
Here is a response from a user living in NY state detailing a timeline of 1 week:
