Hi. I am graduating in December and will be applying for boards in the state of Florida. I have a less than stellar criminal record, and am wondering if anyone knows what the process for application will be like for me? I have 3 DUI's (recovered for almost seven years now) and an exposure charge (caught skinny dipping). I think I will be okay with the DUI's because I have documentation of my recovery, and several letters of recommendation, but the exposure charge worries me. It is classified as a misdemeanor, but it is a crime of moral turpitude.
I have called the board, and they said applications are reviewed on a case by case basis.
Thanks in advance for any reply.

Good luck to you. Check out the link above. Really that's the only advice we are able to give here at Allnurses.
Congrats on your recovery and good luck.
