Hello all, this is my first post so i do hope i'm in the correct place. I have recently completed 1 year with tpapn, thankfully it went quick as it was a nightmare financially emotionally and any every other way you can think of. But like i said i am finished with a unburdened license ( in fact nothing ever showed up on my license throughout the whole process). my question is has anyone traveled after being on probation and if so were their any walls or complication that you ran in to. thank you!

Do you have an order that says you cannot? 

I am assuming you're in Texas; what do they say about your question? Will you always need to declare your time with them?

Best of luck.

Thank you Ruby. I guess im just slightly stressed about being turned down for travel assignments if a hospital found out i was a tpapn nurse at one point.

If your license is unencumbered, and your status was not on a public database as you stated, travel should be no problem.

That being said, anyone ever had any experience with trying to travel with dirt on one’s license. Prison AKA monitoring sentence long since over and license says ‘clear/active’ but the discipline is there for any nosy busybody who wants to read it.

I dunno if any travel company would look twice at me or if facilities would turn me down because of it or would anyone even care.  I dunno if I even want to travel. I’m just curious. Only musing about it because we have a slew of travelers where I’m at and they range from awesome all the way to ‘how the hell did you even get out of school and I’m gathering you travel because you probably can’t keep a job longer than a few months.”

I guess I’d have to explain it and I plain don’t want to because that is a horror I’ve put behind me and prefer to not dredge up again.
