Am I able to get CNA with Juvenile misdemeanor sex offense?

  1. 0
    I am wondering if I am able to get a CNA license with a misdemeanor juvenile sex offense charge (from when I was 12). I was compliant with everything from courts to probation to treatment, etc. and I am wondering whether or not I will eb able to get my CNA in Virginia.
    I am 18 now.

    To be honest, the only one who can answer that question is the VA BON. You can ask them--do it by an anonymous e-mail if you prefer--and see what they say. However, keep in mind that most BONs will tell you that they won't give a definite answer until you actually apply, because they review applicants with a criminal history on a case-by-case basis. They will probably let you know what documentation you will need to submit when you apply.

    Best of luck.

    In PA, acts on this list prohibit hiring as CNA:
    criminal background clearance:prohibitive offenses contained in act 14 of 1997
    Sexual assault, prostitution, even library theft are on the list.
