Turned down due to nursing probation - Page 2Register Today!
- Mar 4 by HunnieBadgerI know that in North Carolina we are required to, down to a conference call with the program manager and the hiring manager from what I gather. Best part of it (insert sarcasm here) is that if the board disagrees with the choice of employment, they can tell you that you can't work there!! So it's not easy to land a job d/t all the stips AND they can still tell you it's not a satisfactory choice! Not to mention all the other ways they will run my life for the next few years...

- Mar 9 by KarenJordanTry applying to home health care. I have taken nurses on probation. I just don't have them on hospice cases. Do understand that your supervisor has to submit reports to the state every 3 months (at least in my state) AND the supervisor signs with their lisence number as well that things are on the up and up. Addicts can be sneaky though, this is why many supervisors won't do it. If that employee relapses/divert, you have to report it to the state, which makes you feel bad. I have had a nurse blame me for losing her lisence, it's not a pleasant situation. i have found overall though that these are loyal employees because they can't get jobs in many places. i really only had a problems one time. Try applying to practice setting where you're not dealing with a lot of narcotics, those supervisors are often less fearful of diversion.
- Mar 9 by TXRN2don't know about the state you are in- but the Texas program does not allow you to work in home health- i think because you aren't working directly under the supervision of another RN.
- Mar 10 by sissiesmamaLouisiana doesn't either. There's quite a few places we couldn't work while in our state's RNP.
