When I applied for endorsement in New Mexico a couple years ago I had to send in two sets of prints one for the state the second to the FBI took at minimum 6 weeks for them to get the results. Alot of states are going to background checks with prints personally if you dont have anything to hide whats the big deal
Well, I said I had done it before, so obviously I don't have anything to hide.
But if they do a background check anyhow, which included transcripts from my nursing college, and driver license check, ss# check, and BON check and other checks, it just seems like alot. If you have EVER been charged with something it should show up with these checks.
Six weeks is a long wait, and it was a hassle to get to the county court house between certain hours on certain days and get it done.
Since it was the first time I had ever been printed, I guess they will be able to identify my body if I turn up dead. I have never committed a crime, so for me it seemed invasive.
Purchasing a gun was alot less invasive.
I just think if they are going to do them on nurses, include other caretakers also.
And if my job is so important that I need FBI clearance, I need a raise
