    if i were you- & they will hire you at the LVN rate- i would do it! it will get you hired & working as a nurse, & could then be advanced as your restrictions are lifted. good luck!!

    Thank you TXRN2..I have no problem working at LVN pay..so I think I am going to try that approach..I live in a relatively rural part of Texas...50 miles NW of Ft Worth..I am wondering if my chances would be better with the LVN approach at the outlying LTC facilities..much less competition than the DFW area I would think? Please post if you agree..disagree and thank you thank you all for being here..you are a beacon in very rough dark scary seas for me.

    i would apply anywhere that is within your driving distance limitation- the job hunt may prove to be long & tedious, unfortunately. but, hang in there- this will all get easier as you adjust to this- your new normal!!

    Thank you Commuter RN..I think I am catching your vibes. My phone interview is tomorrow with HR to go over my stips to see if I can advance to an in person interview with a unit manager. I told my husband I was cautiously optimistic and he said I must be totally optimistic because life is a confidence game...He said you can handle the knocks if they come..go in there and be a winner. He is a good man. I will post tomorrow and good news or bad..I am very grateful to have found all of you. Thank you.:redpinkhe

    So odd..got the call for the positions at JPS I submitted my application for with the very clear notation under "have you ever been disciplined for your license..etc"..and the HR manager never even brought it up..she just reviewed my work history, why I wanted to work at JPS..and then set me up for a face to face interview this coming friday with the unit manager?? I am very grateful but am astounded that she did not question me about my upcoming board order?? I thought HR was the bottle neck to go through...I mean she basically recited my whole nursing experience correctly..but never mention my license. I don't see how she could miss this on my app..or could it be these things are discussed with the unit manager face to face? I had a whole statement prepared regarding my reason for the stips and the history behind it..and practiced it out loud with my husband..I am really confused how this works..help?

    I interviewed with JPS last year. The telephone interview is basically to screen potential applicants. The face-to-face interview with the unit manager is the real meat and potatoes where your stipulations will probably be discussed. It is typically the unit manager who decides whether (s)he is willing to work around your stipulations. Good luck to you!

    Had my interview for the med-surg units today at JPS..was interviewed by 3 managers at the same time from the different units the manage. Went though the usual standard questions for about 30 minutes..then they said.."u put on your app. you have a pending board order and you will discuss at the interview..so please tell us about this" I had a portfolio ready with my resume, explanation of what lead up to this order, letters of recommendation, my last 2 performance reviews, and the pending board order..and proceeded to explain what happened..they commended me for my honesty.. and said they would call me next week for the unit tour and meeting the team. I feel somewhat positive..but am also ready for the rejection..if nothing else..it gave me good practice at reciting my situation. please hope and pray for me...I am doing my best
