Driving myself crazy.

  1. Last Friday I had an interview at a Skilled Nursing Facility. It has been two years since I have practiced. I am in TPAPN which is the recovery program for Texas Nurses.

    The interview went great. They were so nice and supportive of what I had to say and my whole issue with past addiction. She called & talked to my case manager and everything was approved by her. I did a drug screen & then she printed me an offer letter and I signed it.

    My background check is still pending. I am keeping in contact with the girl who has submitted it. She told me the criminal part came back, just waiting on the license status to pop up. She told me that she knows everything will be fine but I am just overreacting I guess. LOL ! I assume since I am in TPAPN that it will show I am under board order, etc. They are fully aware of all of this.

    Just looking to see about how long backgrounds usually take in Skilled Nursing Facilities, if you know ?

    Stressful I know! If you are in Texas and in TPAPN, you shouldn't have anything show up on a check of your license. TPAPN is supposed to be all private. Unless of course you had a board order to sign up for TPAPN.

    You can check your own license to see what they will see when they look you up:

    Texas Board of Nursing
