HI. I need feedback. I made my first year as a new nurse and applied someplace else before I GOT FIRED. I got the job. So, I do not recall getting a background check here at the job I am leaving, but they must have, it's a hospital!! Maybe when I was a nursing assistant. And I transferred internally. BUT, I got a license, and the BON cleared me.

HR called me regarding my new job about my BCI and FBI I did last Tuesday. She said they were mailing them the results, and it was going to be a bit, or it could be a bit to get it. I also put my start date earlier than original which was supposed to be May 16th, but is now April 18th. BCI and FBI was done only one week ago.  

She asked if I had "anything" that would merit this "sending it by mail."  And said "they can see sealed records and expungement". I feel she was fishing. BUT I AM WORRIED TO DEATH.

First off, don't they receive it by mail? And second, I am soooo nervous now because is there something there on my record??

They are letting me start April 18, and it is contingent(the job) with these results. If the BON did not see anything, why would a hospital?? PLEASE HELP. I am worried and shaken up. I don't want to lose out on a chance.

Are you referring to a criminal background check, or an employment background check? That makes a big difference...

Other than state and/or federal requirements, not every employer has the same standards about their employment checks; I don't know if anyone not personally involved with them could accurately answer your question.

Thank you for the reply : ) I thought the board is the messiah of background checks and would never allow if I had something. I could be worrying for nothing but this is my weakness. Thanks again.

No I am good!!  The way the HR gal made it sound like she was coming at me. And saying they mailed the results. I was under the impression they are always mailed. To the board. To the school. To the VA. So I am just in a bad way . Down and out. I got fired. Fired from my first nursing job. I’m down ughhhhh

It's easy when you're down to write scripts that rent space in your head when you have no idea that is what's happening or will happen.  I hope you can hang in there and all will be well soon.
