yes this PVT is indeed legit, 30 students in my batch at gurnick academy that took nclex ahead of me and they all passed. I just took my nclex pn last july 2, 2019 and after just an hr took my test i tried PVT coz i was so nervous i had 205 questions and i thought i didnt make it but PVT relieved my anxiousness. I re register and it says " i have recently scheduled this exam".
Yes it really does work!

Hi everyone! I just wanted to let you know (since I’m sure people who have recently taken this in the middle of July 2019 can see there has not been many posts on this forum around this time) that this trick really does work. The 48 hours of waiting was the WORST part of taking the nclex. However! This forum of all these supportive people really helped me so you are definitely in the right place. I tried the trick pretty much every couple of hours from an hour and a half after my exam on Friday to just an hour before my quick results were posted today (Sunday) and received the good pop up. I did not trust it though. I searched and searched to find someone out there’s with a false positive (got the good pop up and ended up not passing). But there is nothing out there. So that’s reason number one why you should trust this. Number two is that many people do not even have the option for quick results in their state and they RELY on this for determining whether they passed or fail. I know there are certain occasions when this has not been the case and someone has gotten their credit card information to go through and it has and then they end up passing. I’m not sure what that necessarily means but if you get the good pop up consistently after 24 hours from what I’ve heard and now experienced youre in the clear. I passed with 95 questions and took two and a half hours! Just trying to contribute to the conversation on here since others before me really helped me relax in that awful waiting period. Good luck to everyone and congrats to all the new RNs out there!
First of all I want to thank everyone for contributing to this chat as it has been a huge help. I never share on forums like these but given the circumstances I feel it’s appropriate since I’ve gained so much by reading through ALL of these posts.
Let me start by telling you that nursing is my second degree, and I graduated top of my class in nursing school. i never failed an exam in nursing school and I always got 99.99% on all of my HESI exits exams for every class. That being said when school was over I wasn’t really in the mood to study; I was exhausted and burnt out but i still gave it a few hours each day. I utilized HURST review which is really just a watered down overview of nursing school and I used UWorld mostly for questions. Hurst offers these simulators and they claim that if you can get 77 questions correct out of 125 you’re sure to pass; I got 91 of 125 and 90 of 125 - I only did two of the four simulations. On UWorld I did around 1000 questions and 1 full practice test on which I obtained an grade of 80% and that placed me in the 98th percentile – it also claimed my chance of passing was very high. I left it at that, there was another practice test but I didn’t want to over study. To be honest, I had already received a lot of reports from fellow classmates that the NCLEX wasn’t too bad (don’t know what they were smoking!) and they mostly reported getting a lot of SATA questions and no math, plenty of prioritization and leadership stuff so I thought i was good because to be honest I really like SATA questions - i find them easier for some reason.
I took my test yesterday at 0800 and walked out of there at 1130 trembling like a leaf. I knew i was in trouble by the 2nd question. these questions were unlike anything i had ever seen. i found them vague and specific all at once. HURST said that this exam was just about safety and that the exam makers only really expected me to have 2 weeks of vast nursing knowledge - what a load of crap. these questions were crazy and then i started doubting myself because i got 2 or 3 math questions - and i think i barely got 15 SATA questions and I kept thinking I was doing badly because of how few SATA questions i had. by question 50 i just kept thinking that I was going to fail this damn test and what a disappointment i was to my program as the valedictorian. it’s pretty amazing how this exam can cut you down and shred your confidence - I felt like such a stupid and unsafe nurse - I found myself asking myself the dumbest questions. when the computer went off at 75 questions I was horrified because I felt confident i had failed. I wanted to keep going so I could show those test makers that I’m not an idiot. I was in a daze. I went through the field questions which i really enjoyed - much more that their questions anyway - i guess that makes me a nerd. and then I went to the car and just sat there in shock feeling that I had just failed my first exam.
I got the email shortly thereafter and I went to go have a stiff drink. While I was drinking vodka I tried the PVT - this was around 1300 and I got the good pop up. I got the good pop up again at 1800 and again at 2200 for good measure.
I guess my point is that if it’s true that I passed as the PVT trick has shown, then you don’t have to get a bunch of SATA questions to pass, because that was really messing with my head as I took the exam. Also if your exam seems impossibly difficult - then chances are you’re doing well, because I thought my head was gonna start smoking from how hard the questions were and they were just plain multiple choice questions.
I should get my quick results by tuesday and I hope it’s good news. I will follow up to let you know how it turned out.
UPDATE: I PASSED! PVT WORKS - don’t doubt it and don’t waste your time worrying; if you got the good pop up then you’re good. it worked for me and all my friends. best of luck future RNs and godspeed.
OK, I tried the PVT and the “good” error message showed up. I took the exam this afternoon, and like others, I thought I bombed it after the first 10 questions. I left the test and thought that I would lose the fantastic job I have waiting for me, yada, yada. I thought about this trick, but I heard that it does not work anymore. So, I am now eagerly awaiting my results to see if the PVT does indeed work - I will post an update once I receive my results.
Update: It works, I passed! I receive my email from my BON this morning with my license number.
Took the test on Monday (7/15/19) and I had no idea about this trick until three hours ago. Hopefully, it’s true and that it works. Not sure I’m up for another 265
Update: passed the test
I just took my NCLEX today and I did the “PVT TRICK” after I received an email from Pearson. I got the “good pop up” I’m just waiting for my email confirmation because my anxiety is through the roof but my faith in THE MOST HIGH is GREATER…I’ll be back with my update!
Did you end up passing?
Did you take your exam in California?
I took the test in Utah
This forum eased my mind so much that I wanted to add my experiences! To study for NCLEX-RN I did the entire Uworld bank until I got every question right (Re-doing all my incorrect questions over and over until I knew the rationales) and the assessments gave me a high probability of passing. Our school made us do Kaplan so I also completed the question trainers and readiness test. I got a 71 on my readiness test and was feeling semi-confident going in.
I started the test this morning at 8am. It was much more difficult than I expected. I could literally hear my heart pounding in the noise cancelling headphones. I never felt totally confident on any answer I chose, so I expected to go the full duration. I paused and took a deep breath before submitting question 75. It took me to the research section. It was over. I didn’t leave feeling confident that I passed, nor that I failed. I had 24 SATA questions, so I figured that was probably a good sign, but I don’t feel like I got many of them right. I went out to brunch with a friend and when I got home I tried the PVT and got the “good” Popup! I will update in a few days when I find out my official results!!
UPDATE: Just saw my license posted on BREEZE! PVT WORKS!
Awesome news! I still remember that pounding heartbeat sound in the headphones haha
Hi everybody! I took my NCLEX RN 7/18/19. I completed the Hurst review and did a lot of practice questions from a Saunders Q&A book. I closed my eyes before clicking next on question 75, and was pretty excited for it to shut off. I didn’t even bother participating in the research section because it took me two hours just to do the 75 questions, and I was ready to get out of there. I felt okay leaving. I waited exactly two hours before doing the PVT trick, and I got the good pop-up. I was so happy! This forum really put me at ease, as I felt the pop-up was all I needed to confirm that I passed!
24 hours later I checked and my name and license number confirmed it! This definitely works, and I recommend it to everyone anticipating their results!
