But that's not accurate. Some jobs do credit checks as part of the hiring/background check. So it could negatively effect her work.

I haven't heard of jobs that didn't require ARM ( account receivable management) and revenue cycle management require background checks.

I also haven't been in every facility around the country.

I'm from New York City, so I know in the nursing field "bankruptcy" will have no affect on your employment opportunities.

I'm sorry but how do you know bankruptcy won't effect her nursing career. Every nurse I know has to have a background check, most also sign a form allowing the hospital to do a credit check. So how can you guarantee that a bankruptcy will have no negative effect on her career?

... I don't think that's what she was implying. She was stating that in her area, bankruptcy doesn't have a bearing on being hired as an RN.

Unless she's a hiring manager there's no way she can know that. A lot of people don't get jobs and don't know why. Since almost every nurse has to do a background check a bankruptcy can show up on that. With the job market what it is, that could be a huge ding against the applicant.

I have been in Hospital Administration much longer than nursing, hence my masters in Health Administration.

So, I am giving first hand information rather than opinions.

By the way, a hiring manager isn't privy to employee background checks.

Background/credit checks are not to see what your credit score is. Credit checks allow HR to note previous employment, addresses, etc. to compare this with the information provided on your application.

Ok, having this information gives way more weight to your previous statement rather than the original saying it won't effect her. This information is good to know.

I agree with this. We all should laugh at ourselves sometimes. As I have said, if I offended the OP I am sorry.

That's the thing. Having a laugh at someone's misspelling or misspoken words may seem harmless but unless you have a relationship or connection with them it comes across as belittling. Particularly on a message board with complete strangers.

When it sounds like you are laughing at them and not with them it is hurtful.

We need to be careful how we say things on the internet. Though some comments might be meant in jest, sometimes they can come across as rude and sarcastic.

Now, back to the topic at hand.

Credit Check can't be done without consent, and some states prohibit running a credit check.

Also , federal law requires informing the applicant if they've been denied a job due to a bad credit report.

Oh I know they need your permission but every job I've applied for had made me sign the for the background check and credit check.

I'm sure if they wanted to not hire them, they could find a reason other than credit check. But that's just assumptions on my part.

Civilized countries have bankrupty protection laws to allow people to rebuild their lives, without risk of prison, for having bad things happen to them. We 'all' have that right, even if it means planning a 'strategic bankruptcy' to get out of paying unsecured debt. If it's alright for cities to file for bankruptcy to avoid pension plan payments, and billionaires such as Trump (more than one filing, and he's a financial 'expert'), and corporations to file for bankruptcy even as their CEOs are paid millions, then there is surely no shame in a nurse filing for bankrutcy protection. Please explain the double standards posted in here.

Nurses are held to a higher standard than most professions. If you get a DUI it's possible you may lose your license. Or if you had one in the past you may never be able to sit for your boards. This doesn't hold true for many many other professions. It just goes with the territory.
