I completed my first year in the North Carolina Board of Nursing Alternative Program and have been cleared by them to look for employment in nursing. The problem is that as a LPN my job market is more geared to long term care which would expose me to narcotics. I have been on at least 8 interviews and was offered jobs from several of those 8 but
because of my restrictions I wasn't given a positions, My employment opportunity in my area is also limited to the fact that my past employer has monopolize the job market in my county and surrounding counties. One of my options is to drop out of the AP and move to another state and take my chance with another board of nursing. I would greatly appreciate any input from those who had moved to another state and apply for license while being suspended by another state. Should I stay and stick it out or keep moving ahead and not be beaten up every time they tell me no because of my past.
