Good afternoon, I am not too sure I understand you correctly. To become an RN, even at the associate level, it requires a profound understanding of the human body and it's functions. So someone who obtains their license by passing the NCLEX deserves to be a nurse, no matter what their history is. Nursing is a profession that NEEDS persons from all walks of life. As a nurse you will encounter many different people from many different cultures,economic status and beliefs. We need that same diversity with our nursing staff. I can understand that you do not want someone who is not interested as much in caring for the patient as they are interested in getting a "fat check", I too feel that nursing is one area that caring should be #1. But there will always be people that do not care they way they should, but I am sure with enough time in the profession they may start looking for another job..and not in nursing. Try to be more "open" about these individuals you may be surprized and come to find out that some will make great nurses.
