First let me start by saying I'm not sure if this is the correct place to post this but looked like the most appropriate spot.
I am an RN, my boyfriend is a new grad RN, who graduated in May 2006. He used to be a cop in NJ. We live in NC. He went through school and the licencing procedure without a hitch. He has a criminal background that he was convicted for in 1995. It was a civil rights violation, no assault or drug charges. Although there were no questions asked from the school he attended and the nursing board he is having no luck with finding employment. He's had several interviews. Most of the time they like him and offer him a position or say they would like to make an offer but then they see the "yes" box checked on his application and tell him they don't hire anyone with a criminal background. He doesn't know what to do. I personally would give him my job if I could! Anybody have any suggestions, ideas or comments or experience dealing with this kind of thing?
