I've been on probation now for 20 months and have 4 left. I've been working as an RN at a behavioral health hospital. My passion is real hospital nursing. Stepped outside my box and applied at a real medical hospital. The 2 interviews I had sucked! It's never fun telling your story in an interview! I got a call the job AND it's $5 more an hour!! Yay me!!! Don't give up your passion or your dreams!!!

How I prepared for the interview was just to tell the truth. I know who I am. I'm ashamed of what I did but I'm grateful to use myself as a platform. I told them exactly what happened and how I have grown from it. I refuse to hide anymore. They were so understanding and so accepting when I explained how my life was different now. It's worth it to be honest and remember who you are.

Congratulations! I believe that if we're going to disclose our story, it's important to share what we've learned and how we've changed as a result. I'm so happy for you!
