The teacher was very specific about past and present criminal charges a person may have that will definitly interfere with chances of being a licensed LPN, but she mainly said felonies would prevent someone from getting their licenses.
Back in 2007, I used to live in California and unfortunately went through a very bad time in my life and received a DWI conviction, which is a misdemeanor. I looked up my driver's record here in ny and nothing even shows that I lived in california, and my insurance rates haven't gone up either (though I hear it takes up to 5 years to hit). But my question is, will my conviction back in 2007 in another state hinder, if not completely destroy, my chances of getting my LPN license here in New York? I asked my instructor and she said she did not know but I should talk to the head of the department asap. I will be doing this, but I wanted to see if anyone else could be of any help. Does anyone have an input on this??? I am very VERY stressed out over this.

If they were to grant you a license, they would probably have you enter the IPN* alternative program and be monitored for a period of time...
