Years ago my sister made some false accusations and tried to have me arrested. (really, I guess she could have been charged with 911 abuse or something, this was not the only time she did something like this... anyhow....) However I got extremely lucky, it was a very small town and the officer that came to the house knew her from other run ins and gave her a stern talking to. I thank my lucky stars that it wasn't another officer that would have arrested me, I was 18 or 19 at the time and knew that I would never be a nurse with a record.
Now my credit history does really concern me. I lost my job almost 2 years ago, which allowed me to finally go back to school. So of course I had a hard time keeping up with bills so my score is in the toilet. I'm worried that it will affect getting a job, I have heard that it has prevented some. But I just started a job as a hospital transporter, and I'll be licensed in about a month so hopefully it will be easier for me to get an RN spot.
