Exactly 6 years ago, I was hired at this hospital as a pct on an oncology floor for 11-7 shift.
One week to the job, I was a no call no show, and was terminated because of that.
Now, I will be graduating in my nursing program in May 08; and this hospital has just advertised a 3 months new grads residency program with good benefits, which I am interested in, and desiring to apply to.
The next group of new grads will start in August 08 and new grads of May 08 are urged to apply by March 08.
Because of my record, I am skeptical to apply. At the time of my employment there, my domestic life was a mess and I had to move with my children to leave with family members for a while.
I would like some help to write them a letter to show them that I am serious this time and would not leave the job so soon if they give me another chance.
Just to mention, after leaving that job, I was a stay at home mom the 3 years, and now I have been working for an LTC facility as a cna for the past 3 years; and this facility as agreed to write me a recommendation letter to any hospital I choose to go.
I would not be the one to bring this up. I would address it directly as you did here if the issue arises. It is unlikely they would not rehire you several years later as an RN for an infraction committed as a PCT.
It may sound funny but I have seen people be rehired when they were once considered not rehirable under similar circumstances. Simply because time had passed, and they were applying for a different position.
Some times all it takes it to apply to a different manager, assuming that your old manager is still there.
