I have been in health care for several years and I am considering going into nursing.
Recently, I have been working as a CNA and I actually moved out of state to be close to a nursing program that I am interested in.
In transfering my certification I have run into a few problems because of a five year old marijuana conviction. The state I moved to has requested my fingerprints, slowed my certification transfer, and basically made me feel like I am not wanted.
Does anyone know if this conviction is going to plague me forever, and if its worth the trouble to go to school if I can't get registered, employed, etc?
I would love to become a nurse, but I am beginning to get a little discouraged.
Any comments, insights, suggestions?
