I just wanted to get some opinions. I'm sure that there are many posts regarding criminal activity and if they issue licenses, and thats my question. I was charged about 8 years ago ( I was young and made bad choices) with Midemeanor theft <300 dollars, It could of been forgery which is a felony but they lowered it. I am starting the nursing program in august but I just found out that if you have criminal record they will not give you a license. Do I even have a chance, I am just sick about this. It's true what they say, your past always comes back to bite you. Please if anyone knows anything good or bad please let me know. This is such a humbling experience for me.
