How to disclose HIPAA violation in nursing school application?
February 24, 2010 10:59 AM Subscribe
In the early years of HIPAA, I was didn't take it as seriously as I should have and was fired from a clerical position when I looked up a co-worker's date of birth. I was wrong and a total dumb ass for doing it. Now, I would like to know what I should say about it in my nursing school application since clinical hours include hours at the hospital I was fired from.

I may not get into nursing school, but I would like to try. I've been working as a medication aide at a group home for 19 years (worked it concurrently with the hospital clerical job). I don't violate ethics as a rule, and it was a one time violation.
I would like to maximize my chances of getting into nursing school, but I want to be honest about this. Please give me your suggestions on how to handle this. Thank you.
