As mentioned in the title, I'll graduate this May (2013) with my BSN. However, I received a DUI in Decemeber 2011. I've not been in any other trouble than this and I've most definitely learned from the situation. I know the process that I'll have to go through with the BON and I'm confident that I'll receive the "okay" to take the NCLEX, though it may be a several months down the road.
With background details out of the way....
My real question is: how hard will it be for me to find a job as an RN once I have my license?
Also, I know I won't be able to work with a temporary license until I get the "okay" to test. Does anyone have any job ideas in the mean time? I was considering trying to work as a CNA, or similar, until I get my license; however, I tried to get a job as a CNA a few months ago, and no hospitals would even consider my application because of my DUI.
Any advice would be helpful...
Thanks in advance!
