There's probably some loophole that makes it legal, but it certainly isn't right and I would report to the employment commission or whatever you have in Indiana. As an RN you should be able to get a good job almost anywhere, so if your employer doesn't like it, screw him.

If a little knowledge is a dangerous thing, then that makes me a burning truck filled with TNT hurtling through a rocket fuel depot.

The state of Indiana is a Employment At Will state .  Which means your employer can fire , hire , layoff , suspend , promote,  demote and set their own policies as they see fit .  This is not in violation of state law unless there is a collective bargaining agreement or an employee is discriminated again .  Discrimination falls under , sex , age , race, religion , disability and or national origin .
If you feel you are being discriminated against contact the EEOC .  Here is their web site , and contact information and an explanation of the discrimination by type .  Keep in mind the burden of proof is on the employee .  Good Luck !

It all depends on how you impress them in a way you answer each job interview question . Also, in a way on how you handle the job interview. They are looking for a XXX Factor. If in the first interview they already find it, then right away you will be hired. Just impress them. Good Luck!
