Finding an lpn nursing position with a past record in PA.

U.S.A. Pennsylvania


I would like some input from the community r/t nursing positions. I made two stupid choices in my life twelve years ago and now have a record. I completed all my required counseling, made complete restitutio and paid all fines. After that, I completed my course for the LPN program and the state issued me a license in 2004. Initial license was on probationarey status for one year because of my record. I have had an unrestricted license since 2005. I had a job as a charge nurse for several years. that ended in 2010. They made accusations against me. I was cleared by Dept of State, Area Agency on Aging and took a polygraph at my own request and results showed "No deception indicated". I have looked and applied all over for a nursing job. I don't lie or missrepresent any information on y applications. I am attending school to get my RN degree. I need someone to give me a chance to prove myself. I will start at the very bottom if I have to. I would like to hear any suggestions that anyone has t help me in my job search. Also, am I wasting my time and money going for my RN if no one will hire me. My lst employer new about my recored and still hired me. HELP!
