Hi everyone! It's been awhile since my last post.
I'm a foreign RN with 3 years of hospital experience back in my home country and 2 years in another country as a nurse assistant. I have moved here in the US, to be with my husband. I've only been here for less than 4 months and I have sent out applications to different hospitals in this city where we live in. I luckily had 3 interviews. I have accepted 2 employment offers, and both are dependent on the result of my background check.
I do not have any kind of charges from the countries I have been. All my credentials are legitimate. I have an unrestricted RN license here in the US and I have not been subjected to any complaint. I also have all my certifications updated.
My question is: HOW LONG DOES A BACKGROUND CHECK FOR FOREIGN EDUCATED RN WITH OVERSEAS EXPERIENCE, TAKE? I have researched for an answer for about a week now from job forums and I can't find an estimated time frame. The company A is using HireRight and B is using PreCheck. It would be nice to hear from someone who had been in the same situation.
To date, it has been 9 business days since company A initiated their background check, and 2 for company B.
Thank you in advance for those who will provide information regarding this topic.
