Hypohetically, and from what you've learned from being in my position, what would you think when you saw an underage drinking charge from 5 years ago, and would you reject me because of it? good news guys, I got a "no big deal" from a recruiter in TN!! However, i got a reckless driving charge this past May to add to it, and I want to know how serious that is taken in the nursing world?? I'm in TN, where it is a misdemeanor, but technically it is still just a traffic violation...I think?
The hospital that was going to accept me said that I would have to wait until the reckless case was closed and would be fine, which meant I "just knew I had a job as soon as it was closed, therefore didn't need to look". Well, it was put off all the way until november, which was 9 whole months with a license and no experience. of course the hospital id been waiting on was ok with this, as it was their fault, but they misinformed me of a deadline, eventually causng me to have wasted 9 months.
Here I am, exactly one year after the NCLEX. Anyone know if it is possible to even get hired this far into it with no experience? Would you consider me? the record is bad enough, but add the non experience and idk what to do. I'm joing the red cross for one, hoping at least I can help there and get exp., and maybe look good on a resume. Any other ideas???
