I just had to go into HPRP.  I’m looking for suggesting on how to obtain a job.  What to say during or after an interview.  
I refuse to let this stop me from moving forward.  I will do what I have to and know that this will eventually be in my past. 
I could use some support and try and support others.

good luck to you. I was in a situation with my rad tech license which I lost. I chose to stop going to their scam of a rehab program. Im interested in obtaining a nursing license. Good luck to you!

Where about in Michigan do you live? Dialysis is great and contract friendly along with some psych places.

Yes I’m in MI.. I’m feeling very overwhelmed.  I have questions.  Could we chat privately?

Good question. 

I've been graduated from my A-BSN program for over a year, waiting RN licensure, and have no idea if I'm going to get put into HPRP or get my license put on probation. 

I have a criminal history (more than 1 simple DUI), so I'd really know how on earth I'm going to overcome those odds and what kinds of jobs I should even pursue. I also have a psychology BA but will not work in inpatient psych. If I have to I could start my own business, though it seems daunting.

I’m not sure when I read your question the actual situation.  Have you worked as a nurse before?

Not positive if you question was to me, but if it was, the answer is no. I have not worked as an RN before because I am not licensed yet. I've done other things in health care but never in an actual nurse role.

As far as interviewing , what I have done that has worked well is - during interview towards the end when they say - “do you have any questions”. I have my probation  board order in hand and explain to them that im on probation and that I’ve been through rehab and offer them a copy and then I explain that I’ve learned from my mistakes .  I just got fired at one job and was so scared I wouldn’t get another one anytime soon but a week later I Interviewed in a other LTC facility and was hired the same day! I was shocked!  I had good references and they are willing to give me a chance.

  I’m just praying my termination from my other job will not affect my probation .  I know negative reports aren’t good.  I was terminated due to excessive phone use while on duty and taking food from a resident- even though I explained the resident gave me her sandwich because she only wanted her cereal. The sandwich was closed in a disposable tray and she never touched it.  I know I won’t do it again though.   I was there a year and a half with all good reports and negative drug screens , other than those incidents and also I took a tray of a patient who was in the hospital and it was going to get thrown away - so with that I know I will never touch a tray again unless I personally pay for it.  I’ve seen other workers there do it but I was the one who was caught.

im moving forward.

good luck! LTC facilities and dialysis centers are the best places for us to look!
