    In my city, the police do fingerprinting for $5. As I recall, I had the documentation provided as well. I think they can be printed online. I had to print them on cardstock paper. Is that correct?

    Thanks all. I will let you know what happens when I finally turn in all of the required paperwork. When I did call them I asked if they had Friday night shift jobs available and they said "Yes". Of course, by the time I finally get all of the required paperwork done I wonder if they will still have night shift available. I guess I better hurry up and get all of the paperwork done ASAP. I am sorry to hear that if they don't have work available that I can't use this $59.25 background check for my next job.

    The fingerprinting itself is not expensive, it is sending it to the state for analysis that is costly.

    Blackcat, what I said about time limits may not be true elsewhere, I was just saying what our agency policy is. You may not find that to be true where you are.

    Update-I am doing my CPR class tomorrow and my TB test next week and will have all the paperwork done for the $59.25 job requirement. I went to another agency today and they told me that it would cost me $53.75 to get the backround check done. I told them that I had recently done a background investigation and she told me she could find the results online without me having to do another background check. Thank God for that. At this new agency they said I would have to go and get a physical and TB test as physicals and TB tests must be done within 6 months before hire. On this new agency's paperwork it said that a background check is a work requirement and that it does not guarantee that one will be hired. Good luck job seekers.

    We do not charge for TB or CPR at my agency. I just hired a HHA who went through all the hiring requirements (it actually only cost her 5.00 for her county background check) If they have lived in the same county for 3 yrs they don't have to be fingerprinted. We gave her the state HHA exam, competency checked her and registered her as a HHA with the State, gave her CPR training, did her TB test... she called off her first day and then was a No Call/No Show for the next 3 days and won't answer her phone. So the frustration is on both sides of the fence!

    Sounds like someone hasn't figured out that they have to work for a living.

    I can't imagine doing something like that to someone else.

    Kyasi-That's wonderful that your agency does not charge for TB,CPR etc. I am so sorry to hear about that awful HHA. Your agency did so much to help her and then she returns your kindness by being a no-call no-show.

    we dont have to pay for TB or CPR. We didn't even have to pay for fingerprinting when it was required by the school systems for the nurses to go to school with the kids. We had a $15 background check that was taken out of our first paycheck, so you had to be hired to pay for it. I think its wrong of the agency to require you to pay before you are even hired.

I have not had a "job interview" yet. I sure hope they plan on hiring me after I spent all this money doing their paperwork
    OUTRAGEOUS!!!!!!

    Thanks all. I think this whole situation is just plain crazy. I have now completed all of the paperwork for both of these nursing agencies. I will be calling both places today to find out exactly what is next now that I have finally completed all of their paperwork requirements. Thank God, I already have another job to help pay for all of these expenses. One place did call me saying they are getting ready to do my orientation. I will update again when I know more.

    I just called one of the agencies and found out my background check was rejected!!!!!! I have a letter here from the sheriff's office saying that they took the best obtainable digitable finger prints with the following circumstances. They said I have "worn ridges." Now the agency is telling me to go to their office grab some paperwork and go back to the sheriff's office and get my digital fingerprinting done again but this time bring it to the agency and they will process my fingerprints!!!!!!!!!! I wonder who will have to pay for this latest fiasco? I have never ever been arrested in my life!!!!!!!!!

    If you don't want to work for these people anymore, tell them you are not able to pay again. Either they will pay for it or they will drop you from consideration.
