Is it true that you will not get hired if you have bad credit as a nurse or any health profession? I heard this somewhere and was wondering if it is true.

and others don't (i suspect due to the nsg shortage). those who do...however...do so based on moral character. to some employers...if one can run up (usually credit card) bills, then one should be in the position to pay said debt. it's one thing to have been working a viable job & then find yourself laid-off for six months to a year or more...be disabled from an injury...or have outstanding hospital & or student loan expenses...and another thing to carelessly rack-up credit card debt. that shows poor character, self control, & mistrust.

sooooooooo...i suggest that if you have outstanding debt & are in a position to pay said debt off....please do so before things get way out of hand. today...banks are becoming smart! they know your debt can only stay on your credit report for seven years...but alas...they've done the unthinkable & that's to sell your debt off to other credit agencies who'll keep your debt on going! they can hold on to your debt for six years & eleven months & can & do sell your debt to another agency who will re-list your original debt (which keeps getting higher mind you with every transaction between agencies) for another seven years & the cycle can literally go on & on !!!! so now...you've got this original debt of say $200.00 that you thought was going to fall-off in a month only to find out that you not only still have it...but it has grown almost doubled & in some cases...tripled in fees to $900.00 & climbing.
hope this helps you ~ cheers!
