    The three job terminations are going to be a big hurdle to overcome. How long have you been with your current employer? Pros don't cancel out cons.

      Do you think that the job terminations are my biggest hurdle?

        Simply put yes. One termination is bad enough, but three shows a big history of insubordination, regardless of the reasoning.

          One oh sh..t wipes out a thousand Atta-Boys. As a colleague has wisely noted, you could rescue stray puppies, volunteer at church, help old ladies across the street, but these could be off-set by one arrest or incident.

          Let's do the firings. Three in total just doesn't look good. There has to be a significant reason for this, and it could cause a given agency to simply shy away from you.

          While your traffic violations taken singly, wouldn't be a disqualifier, there is at least one which is far too recent. Additionally, you're very close to establishing what my Agency terms "evidence of disregard or disrespect for the law.

          When you say you're in nursing , does this indicate you're an RN? If so, this would indicate some degree of dedication and self discipline, which would be in your favor in a Background investigation.

          What to do for the present? Continue to establish a record of a stable work history, with a minimum of three, but more like five years of employment absent any terminations or disciplinary actions. The same would apply with respect to your driving and arrest record. A final note on your Motor Vehicle History.

          Many abstracts only go back for say, five to seven years. When called upon to do so, list any arrests/citations/violations to which you have been subject over the years. Come as close as you can to dates, times, charge(s) and dispositions. Background Investigators have the ability to access your entire Motor Vehicle History.

            As a former background investigator, I would say PhilipCal is exactly right. I don't see anything that is an automatic DQ, however you have a pattern of terminations and speeding tickets. Unless a department is desperate for applicants, you may have to wait three to five years of being ticket/arrest/termination free.

            You appear to have a good head on your shoulders and are already working in a profession that requires dedication and sacrafice. This will reflect positively on you (although it does not magically wipe out the bad).

            Good luck in your endeavors.
