Sorry I searched the board t find an appropriate answer but nothing really applied.
here is my question I have an simple assault charge that is a misdemeanor it is 7yrs old. no it didn't happen when i was a teenager or even young. it was a stupid mistake, no other charges (convictions) before or after. I work in a hospital have for have a great work history two jobs 10 years for one 8 years on the other both in hospitals non patient care.
I do administrative work and i was thinking of going back to school to be a ultrasound tech or a PTA or something in patient care. my question is with the background check and all the strictness of working for a hospital is it worth it. i called the board to see if i could even get licensed and they said its case by case.I can provide several letters of references from nurse manager,DR's, nurse educator at my job. but is it worth going through a program and taking a chance. I already work in a hospital so i could transfer but what if i want to venture out later on or i move i will ahve to face this proble. The medical field is not my only option so please be honest and blunt.
also i did a background check of myself and it only came back with traffic tkts but it was a free internet site so it may not be accurate.
Do you think its worth it? opinions needed thank you
