Other jobs for BSN with revoked license?

  1. If someone who has a bachelor of science degree in Nursing has a revoked license.... Is there anything else they are able to do with this degree since they obviously are not able to practice nursing????? Or is there nothing out there for someone with a BSN do without an active license?

    At least in Ohio, a BS degree in any field will allow you to substitute teach. You still must pass the background check.
    Good luck!

    I am sorry to hear that your license is revoked. Is there any way for you to earn reinstatement?

    I seriously doubt that most of these employers would hire an RN without an intact license. If a facility's policy requires an RN for a position, then that RN must be in good standing. You can't call yourself a Registered Nurse without the registered part, even if you do possess the knowledge. Hiring an RN without a license would only call attention to the lack of license and the reason for the lack. A case manager or utilization review consultant that does not possess a professional license under which to make decisions?

    Maybe #9......

    I'd say go to graduate school and get a non nursing related degree or another BS or BA degree. I think the other thing to consider is why was the license revoked? Can you explain it during an interview for say a drug rep or something.

    Wow tough question...they are going to ask in any medical facility if you have ever held a professional license and had discipline action....

    Life/health/disability insurance underwriter comes to mind. They may work with the loss of license if the offense wasn't too grievous.

    there's always stripping or barber college, maybe truck driving. Although I did know a nurse who got a job as a transcriptionist after she had her nursing license revoked.

    The person in question still has a bachelors degree. They may not be an RN but they have the degree. They could teach (not nursing) but they could take some extra classes and teach school-or like someone else sugested substitute teach. There is no reason they have to mention that the license is not current.

    What about that little section in the job application that states "List all licenses/certifications held, past or present" or the ever so wonderful "have you ever had your license suspended or revoked?"
