I recently passed the nclex-pn exam and have been applying to numerous job openings especially nursing homes in my area because that seems to be where most of the LPN jobs are. I have applied to over 50 positions and have only gotten two interviews. Today I got a call from one nursing home that said they could not hire me because of a misdemeanor charge I recieved 13 years ago when i was still young and dumb.
I guess i thought because of the length of time it has been i knew I would have roadblocks but not like this. I have worked for all the major hospitals in my area as a CNA and they do lifetime background checks and was still able to gain employment. Gosh even the state of NC gave me a nursing license for goodness sake and they check back to the day you are born!!!!!!!! I just don't know what do do at this point I worked so hard to become a LPN now its all falling to pieces I might as well go back and be a CNA at least I could find a job .... Does anyone have any other suggestions where else I could go other thank nursing homes to find a job. Just Frustrated
Thanks for letting me vent.
