I am considering Nursing as a future profession yet have recently gotten into a battery felony against another family member about a year ago. I was under the influence at the time and regret having taken the actions through my Domestic Violence classes. I have read the other posts regarding felonies and am wondering if anyone is/knows anyone else in my specific situation or knows anything more about the issue. So far what I've read is:
- each state has different guidelines and looks at each case individually
- the general rule of thumb is that if you have been convicted of drug use or assault with a deadly weapon
, license is denied
- after 5/10 years chances are increased
- some states only conduct statewide background checks (yet lying would seem counter-productive in the long run in my opinion)
This is just what I've read so far, if anyone would like to add any information or opinions to the issue.
