I was wondering do anybody know someone was in the same situation like me was able to get in to nursing school and are able to do clinical also. I'm a convicted felon. I was charged with public assistance fraud. The lawyer that was representing me didn't really explained to me my charges at the end. All she told me I wasn't going to get jail time. I found out last year that all my rights have been take away from me. I have a new lawyer now but he told me that's its going to be impossible to handle my case. He told me that lawyer mess me up badly. He basically told me to be honest and see if they can accept me. So I'm here asking for help if anybody knows something. I have one more semester left of the prerequisites for the nursing program.
