    Arrested and expunged FBI

    How do you run a FBI background check on yourself? I did a livescan and everything showed up!! I have a license in CA and would like to relocate to FL, wondering about expunged charges

    Any Other State Like Texas

    Everyone says Ca is hard but I got my license with expunge record, no probation. Now I am wanting to move to texas or florida, so knowing they are easier is a weight off my shoulders

    Your funniest "are you serious?!?!" MIDAS report

    I just got my first Midas against me or not putting a patient with a bacteria positive sputum culture on contact precautions. Honestly a heads up would have done. I thought it was a little extreme

    Kaweah delta travel rn's please!!!!!!!!

    I worked at kaweah for a year, switched to st agnes and immediately regretted it. I did not feel very supported at St. Agnes from my coworkers. I am not a travel nurse, so I am sure my situation is a bit diffferent but I just wanted to share. I loved kaweah, and just wished I lived closer

    What city do you work in and how much do you get paid hourly?

    Seems like Nor Cal is the cash cow!! I know cost of living is pretty high there, tho.

    still getting my feet wet

    Oh I ask questions! I almost feel like I am always asking, I think that's why I get a little embarrassed, and I don't hesitate to ask if I feel like a patient's safety is at risk. I guess I just hate still being so unsure of things. I know I am not the only one to feel this way but its still frustrating.

    still getting my feet wet

    brand new nurse here 3 months , still cant get over that feeling that some days I am not that good at this!! Some days I find myself still getting so overwhelmed. I also find myself so intimidated by certain tasks like IV starts or anything that requires those nursing skills that I feel I am lacking. Sometimes I feel embarrassed to ask for help because I don't want my coworkers seeing me as incompetent, although I have a lot of support on my unit. I have made a few mistakes along the way and I beat myself up for it. I find myself so anxious driving into work somedays, literally praying to have an easy day. Please tell me I will get there!! Also had a super emotional day and cried with a patient the other day. I got really attached to this patient because I had been caring for her on every shift for 2 weeks and they finally transferred her to a higher level of care, another hospital in another town. As I was saying goodbye to her we both started crying. once again I was super embarrassed in front of my coworkers for being so emotional. ughh. just needing to vent and hope someone has some advise
  10. I honestly think you have a chance. don't give up. I got my license against all odds. Get a lawyer if you have money, your BAC was so low, that will make a difference... my advice is to also attend aa meetings and get proof and also get letters. I wrote a very heartfelt letter and was very honest about my discretions. I did not make excuses and took full responsibility. Good luck to you. You got this!!

    Applying with a CRIMINAL BACKGROUND

    I was just going to comment that in the case of furtherance of justice, no you do not have to disclose. but It looks like you figured that out.

    Stipulated Settlements CA BRN

    Ten months seems like an awful long time, sorry you are dealing with this and I wish I had answers for you. I knew it was going to take a while for them to work on my case and it took at least three months, but I ended up with a unrestricted license. I guess all you can do I wait. I wonder if taking a trip to Sacramento would get you any answers? Best of luck to you!!

    how soon is too soon?

    I worked with a different preceptor for two days and what a difference it made!!

    how soon is too soon?

    So I took the first job I was offered at a hospital 45 minutes away from where I live. I have only been there 6 weeks and I am not out of orientation. I really want to give myself 6 months but honestly so far I am not sure if I like it. I am still really unsure of myself and my orientation is almost over. My preceptor honestly makes it worse. she stands over me and just waits for me to make a mistake. she is very intimidating. I am always asking questions because there is just so much that i feel like maybe I forgot from school and she acts like I should already know more than I do. I know my skills aren't that great at times but I have never done anything to compromise a patient's safety and that is what she put I my evaluation, that I need to put patient safety first. She also put that my strength is never hesitating to ask if I am unsure. Isn't that contradicting? Some days I feel so nervous heading in to work. A part of me wants to apply somewhere else, somewhere closer and maybe a different dept. The floor a work on now is a med surg clinical decision unit, a lot of tely patients. and patients are always coming and going and we can have up to five patients at a time. Should I wait it out before I start applying somewhere else?

I also went to meetings and got signatures and sent in that. also the court docs will have to be certified. its 25 a copy. btw I am also out of the central valley !! good luck to you
