About 3 years ago I received a DWI in long Island and i deeply regret it for doing such a thing. I was young and stupid. Right now I am planning to do a career change to nursing and currently working on the prerequisites for the nursing program.
I just found out that requiring a nursing license will require to answer a yes/no answer if I was ever arrested for a misdemeanor(DWI). Since I need to answer yes I want to know how much it will effect me of getting a nursing license?
Should I even bother pursuing a nursing career? Is there anything I should do now to get a better chance of getting a license? Any advice and things to expect will be greatly appreciated.
