Should I look for something else after the discipline on my license?

First off, I work at a big state hospital. I have been offered 3 other jobs which I turned down. I also have my NY license. I also got turned down for several other jobs. Should I be worried that I may be limited to my options as a nurse with a discipline on my license or can I relax at this point to say I'm good? I have had no limitations, suspensions or revocation. It was a fine and that was it. Thanks!

You said you have No limitations, weren’t suspended, and license wasn’t revoked. So what was the discipline, probation? Nurses whose license have been disciplined have a permanent “mark” on their license. Employers will see it when they do backround checks so if you didn’t disclose that information this could be a reason they didn’t hire you.

No probation either just a fine. I didn't need to disclose it since I answered all the questions honestly.

Ok so your license doesn’t show that you had disciplinary action taken against it? If it was just a fine I’m confused why your worried about limitations.

You can get a job with just a fine on your license very easily.  It's a matter of looking for the right place.  Hang in there!

It does show there was a disciplinary action on it.

It shows there was action against it, but I've never been limited, on probation or suspended so I always answer no to all those.
