Will a reckless driving ticket prevent me from getting my New Jersey license?

Hi all!! I've recently graduated LPN school 11/10!I sent in my app to take the boards and recently went to do my fingerprinting earlier this month. In August of 2010, I received tickets for speeding and reckless driving. No arrest or court appearance. I've had no prior criminal history and this was an isolated incident. My driving was a bad judgement call on my part being as though someone could've been hurt or worse People have told me the New Jersey Board of Nursing will automatically disqualify me when they run my background check since reckless driving is a misdemeanor. I've been losing so much sleep . When applying for my license, I didnt check any of the boxes that asked if I had a criminal history or whatever they ask (because I wasnt aware that I had one), so will I also get in trouble for that?! Please any advice is helpful because I have no money to consult a lawyer. Has anyone else ever been in this situation? What was the outcome?
I hate to have spent so much on my education to have it all go up in smoke....
Thanks a lot for any responses! :heartbeat
