Nursing Jobs/with Felony Conviction

  1. Hello all! I recieved my nursing license in Feb.02. I worked 2 jobs, with the longest being 9 mths in LTC. I tried to renew my license, but recieved a letter from the TN Board of Nursing saying I had to come before the board so they could determine reinstating my license. They did, thank God, but I haven't gotten 1 job since I went. I recieved my license back in April '06. TN is so hard on felons. It has been 10 yrs. ago. I am looking to travel anywhere to find a job. If anyone knows where I may get a job. Hope to hear from you soon!

    Keep trying..someone will give you a break. A lot of time has passed since your conviction...if you have been "of good moral conduct" since that time, I don't see what the problem is. Heck the Nursing Board in TN renewed your license....that should be good enough ! Hang in there

    I'm sorry to hear that.

    Unfortunately here in Florida they do extensive background checks and it would probably come back to haunt you.
