After applying and interviewing for eight long months, I have finally got an offer with a hospital that has even been cleared by IPN. However, I am nervous about clearing the background check because my monitoring in a previous state is through the BON, so the details are public. I accepted that offer a week ago and am patiently waiting to NOT here back that I failed the background check when BAM! I get another offer yesterday for a different hospital. I am awaiting IPN clearance on that one but the problem is I would prefer to keep the first offer as it is nights, so I won't have to deal with juggling work and drug testing. And the even bigger problem is the second offer wants me to sign paperwork today and start orientation on Monday! I'm afraid if I pass up the second offer now, I have over a week before the first offer orientation would start and if something goes wrong with that I could still end up jobless! The anxiety is real people. Sorry if this is a messy rambling rant but I just don't know what to do!

Congratulations! I hope to have this problem when it comes time for me to get to work as a nurse, hahaha.

All kidding aside, I guess I would call the first place and let them know, in a kind manner, that you had another offer, but wanted to see where they were in the process, as you would prefer to work for them?!?! I don't know, it is a sticky situation, at best.

Please, since it has been a week, let us know how it turned out!

Good luck to you, whatever path you choose!

So the second offer was rescinded already. Once the nurse manager contacted IPN, they stated they overlooked the narcotic restriction in my contract, which I had previously sent them. So as long as I pass the background check for the first offer I'm good to go. I just have know idea what they check for, and a good friend had her offer rescinded from the same company a day before orientation was meant to start. It's just all a big unknown still and I'm just praying the offer sticks. My orientation is meant to start Monday so I'm hoping if I don't hear anything by then I'm good to go. I also am still interviewing, I have one on Friday.
