hi my name is tonya and i wanted to know if i would be able to become a nurse with a felony on my record. the crime was organized fraud and i plead nolo contndere(no contest) but adjudication was withheld and i have my civil rights. i heard that i would have to apply for my licensure then go in front of the fl board of nursing and they would decide. I am really scared of applying to nursing schools
b/c of this. is there anyone out there with a similar situation or that can give me some positive reinforcement.
