Obtaining Results of the NCLEX Examination
Applicants for North Dakota licensure who have taken the NCLEX® examination can obtain their unofficial results within two business days from the time of testing through the NCLEX ® Quick Results Service offered by Pearson Vue (the testing service offering the NCLEX® examination). There is a fee for the use of this service. The applicant may access their unofficial results via the internet 24 hours per day. The applicant’s credit card will be billed only if results are available.
To obtain results via the internet, the applicant may go to www.pearsonvue.com/nclex and sign in with a user name and password. After logging in, applicant clicks on “current Activity”, then “Recent Appointments”, then “Status” to access the Quick Results link. After entering a credit card number, the examination results may be accessed. The Quick Results Service provides an applicant unofficial results only and does not authorize an applicant to practice as a licensed nurse until the license is issued by the North Dakota Board of Nursing.
The North Dakota Board of Nursing will generally email the results to the applicant within one week of receipt of the results. Results will not be given over the telephone to the applicant or to any other individual by Board staff.
After the results have been processed, the "Verify" option of this website will show:
- a license number if the applicant has passed OR
- the work authorization will be expired if the applicant has failed.
If you can not view the license information, it is possible that the results may not have been received from the testing service, or the license may not yet be processed. An employer must remember that the employee can not begin working in a licensed position until the license is issued and can be verified on the Board's website.
