I want to be a nurse, but I have misdemeanors

  1. 0 I've tried looking around and I think I know the answer, but some advice from experienced individuals would be greatly appreciated.

    In 2001 I was convicted of misdemeanor carrying a concealed deadly weapon. A couple years ago I started college part time with the purpose of getting a nursing degree. One year ago I was convicted of leaving the scene of an accident and public intoxication. This spring it will be time to apply for nursing school, but I fear my record will kill my opportunities. Do I have a good chance to get into nursing school or get licensed? Assuming I get that far would anybody hire me? My academic record is strong; unfortunately my criminal record isn't. Thanks for your input.
