Hi! I am a brand new RN with all of 6 months experience in a rural hospital. We deliver babies, have a fast paced 10 bed ER, long term care and sub acute ward as well as a medical floor.

I just graduated in May and passed boards in July. I found a job with no difficulty in a pediatric unit of a rural hospital.

I went on two other interviews but those [...]
2 years ago I got a DUI.
I am currently on monitorig with the board and recently passed my boards for RN. I have applied at hospitals, nursing homes, rehabs with no luck of getting hired because
1) I can't work nights;
2)I can't work per diem;
3) because I'm on monitoring!
I almost feel like giving up. There is so many stipulations to the boards monitoring I can't get [...]
