I am one week into nursing school in south Florida. I have a couple of misdemeanor drugs charges from 2006-2008, I have been sober for 2 1/2 years now, will be sober 4 1/2 years when i sit for boards. I have been to rehab and am an active member of a 12 step fellowship. personal character references and hopefully faculty references will be easily obtained when needed. I know i need to gather all the court dispositions from all cases. The background check for the school bounced back at me a week prior to start of class. i talked to the admins and they cleared me. does anyone have any recent experience with anything like this in fl? any advice as to what to do in the mean time (besides study). also the schools background check only popped up one case with two marijuana charges. there are a few more out there from different counties (all in nj btw) that didn't pop up. when it comes time to apply for the boards i should just be upfront about all charges im assuming?
btw since im posting this in the recovery portion of this site ill mention that I am clean/sober soley because of the 12 steps. And am sober today only by continuing to work them and stay active in the 12 step fellowship. i freaking love it
thanks in advance
