I graduate in May this year and got my RN license this August. I live in a very small town away from interstates highway, and I can not move since family reason.
Two weeks ago, I got a job interview in a nursing home of this town. They asked for my ID/RN license card copy and told me they will hire me after finishing my background check. Last week, I called back and asked about my background check. They told me it is not done yet and should be done in a few days. Today, I am still waiting for their call because I really want to work in the same town I live so I can take care my family. however, I really cannot keep waiting. I am forgetting my skills.
I started applying jobs in other town which at least I need to drive 50min in one way. and I got an interview offer today. I want the job in the same town, but is it real to wait for a background check (I never have any bad record) for 2 weeks and still waiting? Or it is just an excuse they don't want to hire me? I may take the 50min drive job if I still don't get any call from nursing home of my living town. but I really want to working in the same town like I said I can take care of my family. Does anyone have the similar situation before. please help!!!!
