    Yes, this happened to me for a nurse aid position. The recruiter said that there were budget cuts. I was bawling over the phone but it's not in my nature to be rude so I just tried my best to keep it together and remain polite.
    THEN...I got a call back a few months later from the same recruiter offering me another job. She said "You were so polite when I called to rescind the job offer and I never forgot that." SERIOUSLY.
    I worked as an aide for 6 months and was hired immediately into an RN position before I graduated from nursing school.
    Moral of the story: be polite! This might not be the end of your story with this hospital.

    If you call in according to policy guidelines, i.e. 4 hrs before shift, it's only your business what the reason is. That being said, sleep deprivation can impair judgment as badly as drugs or alcohol.
    If you make an error because you're overly tired, it will be said that you should have known better than to work in such a state.
    This is the real issue here. If OP crashes her car because she fell asleep, miscalculates a pediatric dose, gives a med to the wrong patient, or doesn't catch that her patient is crashing until it's too late, it's all on her. Sleep deprivation makes you impaired. Know your limits, follow your hospital policy, use your PTO like anyone in any other profession would do.

    I believe some nursing student sins are forgivable. Before I started my pre-reqs I ran a red light with a camera, and got a ticket. Went to traffic school and got it all taken care of. When I applied for NCLEX I had to declare that I'd had a traffic violation over xyz amount of dollars. I wrote a personal statement about how I had changed, and had a friend write a personal reference to my character. Now I've been a nurse for 4 years.
    A nursing school may be willing to take you if you can demonstrate how you have changed and have references that attest to your character (volunteer service for example). You will have to sell it, maybe meet with the dean. You might also get some good answers from the Nurse Addiction forum. Good luck!
