Chances are if you went to nursing school around DFW, that's also where your background check was - and you wouldn't have gotten into nursing school if you didn't pass the background check.
The Groupone check is different than a "standard" background check. And various places may run background checks through different agencies all of which may have differences in data. And different groups may nix you on certain issues, while another may not. Thus, while the same issue may get a "pass" by school, it may not let you "pass" to work for some employers.
And if the job that got the OP listed with Groupone occurred AFTER nursing school, whether the OP passed a background check before nursing school is irrelevant.
It might be best for the OP to find out what facilities use Groupone ( not all do) and avoid applying to those.
The other issue, is even those places that do not use Groupone will run references and the being let go for attendance in the first 6 weeks of a job, is going to look bad and get him/her dinged from a job, especially in this economy.
