I'm currently enrolled in a university nursing program
in the U.S. (Texas), at the top of my class, and I am supposed to start clinical training soon; however, I'm concerned the board of nursing here may prevent me from doing so, simply because I was once arrested for possession of marijuana, even though I went through a first offender's program (of probation), after which, the charges were officially dropped (although the arrest itself is still on my record). If this is going to prevent my continuing into nursing in the U.S., I was considering moving to Canada, hoping it would not be such an issue there. Or is this just wishful thinking? Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
