    questions 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?
    these are questions that the members of allnurses.com cannot answer. the only reliable source of information is your state board of nursing.
    please refer to this thread for other information:

    good luck.
