I had an issue come up today that I wanted some opinions on. I am a new grad nurse and was going to begin my first RN job on Monday. Today is Friday and I got a call from that hospital (which I am relocating to) telling me my background check didn't clear because I have an open court date. I explained that the court date was for my speeding ticket which I am fighting and they insisted that I cannot start work until after the court date is taken care of. Is this normal? It's just a speeding ticket going 9 over. Thanks!
