anxious about credentialing process

  1. I am applying for ,y first NP position at a hospital. I am not familiar to the credentialing process and am very anxious. Would rehiring issues (due to not giving enough notice for resignation) be basis for denial in getting credentialed? How does the credentialing process work? What previous employment do you list ? I have more than 20 previous employers as an RN over 23 yrs.(including agency, per diem, and very short periods lasting 2-3 weeks). I have no criminal hx, no malpractice claims, no complaints. I have been in my current job for 10 years in very good standing.

    Have I doomed my chance for an NP career?

    Any advice/sugg will be greatly appreciated!

    Nope not at all. Credentialing in my organization is taken care of by our credentialing specialist since we are credentialed at multiple dialysis units plus five hospitals not to mention all the insurance

    When you are hired they will give you forms to fill out. I try to have each form consistent with my resume for dates, duties, etc. I think they like gaps in employment to be explained. They will tell you what they need. I never thought about what exactly is checked or how or why.
