I am a 36 year old who was recently charged with felony welfare fraud. I want to become a nurse, but I cannot seem to get answers from the BON in my state or the Dean of the nursing school
I was trying to attend. She told me I can take the classes, but I may havea problem with clinicals. She could not tell me for certain if I will or will not be able to participate. I spoke to nurse recuiters at different hospitals and they stated they will hire nurses with felonies on their record if it did not have anything to do with patient care or drugs. What I want to know from you all are should I pursue my BS in Science then do the second degree option for nursing when I can the felony expunged or try to take nurses now? Thank you.
