My question is has anyone with convictions found work after graduating?

- May 10, '12 by dirtyhippiegirlI'm a new grad and I hold two nursing jobs and have a DUI from ~5 years ago on my record, including a home health nursing job. (The other is a hospital-based job.)
I have a friend who received a DUI about six months before nursing school started and she has held two hospital-based jobs.
Obviously, neither of us will ever know how many jobs we were automatically screened out of because of our history.
I think you'll probably have bigger issues with just being a new grad nurse - at least if the economy continues to stay stagnate. Working while you're in nursing school, networking, and getting good grades will probably count more for your career potential than an old misdemeanor on your record will count against.
