nurse with consent order

  1. Hi I currently live in Connecticut and my license was suspended while an investigation was performed. My case had nothing to due with a substance abuse or diversion of drugs, it involved the way I was practicing. I had since completed several courses, as well as volunteer work. After all was said and done after about a year of my license being suspended they contacted my attorney and a consent agreement was signed stating I will be on probation with no restrictions. Now I noticed whenever I apply to positions I'm not even given the time of day as soon as they find out about my discipline. My question is has anyone who has had a discipline on their license been able to find a job? Also I would like to finish obtaining my RN, will this discipline carry onto my RN license?

    In my experience, employers are very wary of hiring anyone with significant blotches on their professional practice record, no matter how much time has elapsed. But there is a variation in how states handle this... whether they maintains a 'permanent record' or whether they purge records/events after a specific time period.
