At what point in the application/interview process do you tell potential employers about being in a BON monitoring program? Do you put it on your resume/application, or wait until the interview?

I never put it on my resume or application.  I always preferred to discuss that subject during an in-person interview.  It usually comes up fairly quickly, as I had a large time gap between nursing positions & was questioned about that.  

Just my two cents.... good luck!

I bring it up at the interview.  If you walk in with confidence and you are an good nurse, youd be surprised how many employers will work with you.  Personally I've brought it up right at the begining and also been to some where I waited until the end. I found that the interviews in which I brought it up right away, the employers were more receptive. I would flat out tell them, this is my situation and if you can work with me great if not I don't want to waste your time. I got that job that day. Good luck!
