Hi guys. I have a question, and wasn't sure who to ask. I think this may be one of those situational things.
There's a girl in my Anatomy class who seems to be really interested in the nursing program -- she's always talking to students, asking about classes, is taking all the prereqs, etc. But she hasn't applied for admission. Her roommate, who is in my Micro class, says that it's because she has a criminal record and thinks it would render her ineligible for licensing.
Apparently, she was arrested a few years ago for bouncing two checks. According to her roomie, it was a one-time offense, was not a large dollar amount, and she paid court fees and a fine. She did not go to jail and wasn't put on probation. That's about all I know about the case.
She seems like a really nice person, and I think she just made a stupid mistake. I'd like to encourage her to apply for the program, but I don't want to do that if there's a real chance the BON might deny her a license.
Does anyone have any information on this? Any ideas?
