2. Are NCLEX Quick Results Accurate?
The NCLEX quick results should be about 100% accurate on whether or not you passed or failed the exam. You can't practice as a licensed/registered nurse until the official results are posted by your state board of nursing.

If your state participates in the NCLEX quick results program, then you'll be able to get the quick results two business days after you take the NCLEX examination.

If you don't see an option for quick results. Make sure your state is one of the ones that participate in the quick result. Make sure it's been at least two business days from when you took the NCLEX exam. Lastly, make sure you're looking at the correct spot for the option to buy the quick results.
16. Should You Buy the NCLEX Quick Results?
If you have the available funds, it might help your anxiety if you go ahead and buy the results when it's available.
For many nursing students, their NCLEX results will post faster than expected. Because of that, the time between being able to buy the quick results and the official results being available is not that great.
Since the cost of the quick results will be nominal for many students, I think it's well worth it for most to go ahead and pay it so they can get their results faster.

The NCLEX quick results will be on a very plain-looking webpage. It will have the name of the exam you took and the date you took the exam. To the right of that, it will list whether or not you passed or failed the exam. Underneath that will be a list of past exams, you've taken.
