Hi. I'm a 39 year old businessman. I've been successful in business but want to make a career change that will allow me growth, satisfaction and some control of my own destiny. i have a friend who is a nurse practitioner and after speaking with her I've changed my mind from teaching to nursing. I'm gaining entry to a local nursing school
for the 2 yr rn program. i have a criminal conviction for obstruction of justice, a non-violent and non-drug related case involving a former employer and their paperwork. It is a class d felony, just above a misdemeanor. i contacted my local nursing board in Maryland and was told they can't answer whether I'd get license until after completing nursing school. Anyone know of any other case like this or the right legal person to speak with to get the answer? I know this is an unusual one, but please help. If necessary, I'm willing to go to school and hope for the best. I think nursing is right for me and that i'd be a good nurse.
