    I read your postings from last year and was wondering how things were going for you so far. Are you still employed and where did you end up? Your posting was very encouraging. I graduate in 5 weeks (RN school) and I too have a drug felony conviction that is 19 years old. I am scared to death that no one will give me a job in nursing. I have a background as an LPN and I some time ago I did everything I needed to do for the BON in Missouri for my license to become active again. Currently, I work in an entirely different field but I could sure use some advise on where to seek employment as an RN.

    I have been employed now for almost 2 years as a med/surg nurse at a large hospital system in Dallas. I am now also enrolled in a NP program. I wonder if I will find an NP job facility to hire me? Will the DEA approve? I guess I will tell you in 2 years.

    I can do all things through Christ!
