Registered Nurse License regarding Felony (Domestic Violence)
- 0Aug 17, '07 by zarkdiamond32I 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.
- 2Aug 18, '07 by sirI, MSN, APRN, NP Adminquestions we seem to be encountering more and more often have to do with the effects of a criminal history on nursing licensure:
- is it possible to become licensed as a nurse if you have a criminal history?
- is it possible to become licensed as a nurse if you have a dui or other related charges?
- what happens if you are charged or convicted of a crime after licensure?
- can i go to nursing school and/or be licensed if my record has been sealed or expunged?
- will i be able to go to nursing school with a criminal record?
- what can happen if i receive a dui/dwi or other charge while still in school?
please refer to this thread for other information:
