Juvenile criminal record?

  1. hi i am trying to get in this field but it seems that i cant. i have a felony record that i cant seem to seal yeah i was dumb kid(14) at the time. i went to community college for a bit until i found out that my record cant be sealed i dont want to waste another year to find out i cant get in the program. i'm getting old and getting no where, 27 yrs old darn it so i called everst college (private) and they said to get in the program my record has to be clean, so i was wondering if its true or is there a way around it? i am lost!

    questions we seem to be encountering more and more often have to do with the effects of a criminal history on nursing licensure:

    • is it possible to become licensed as a nurse if you have a criminal history?
    • is it possible to become licensed as a nurse if you have a dui or other related charges?
    • what happens if you are charged or convicted of a crime after licensure?
    • can i go to nursing school and/or be licensed if my record has been sealed or expunged?

    these are questions that the members of allnurses.com cannot answer. the only reliable source of information is your state board of nursing.

    please refer to this thread for other information:
