    There is no such thing as a minor felony. There are degrees of felonies, yes. But criminally speaking, a misdemeanor is a minor crime, and a felony is a major crime.

    Hi, I tried to post the name of the nurse attorney I used in Austin, and allnurses.com would not allow me to post it. I do not know if you can post your email information on this site. I wish I could help you. I am not a paying member on this site, so I can not post private emails to others. So sorry!!

    this makes me feel so much better! i just finished my CNA class and i am worried about a mistake i made this past july. i was fired from my job because i stole money out of the register. it was so stupid of me and i am truly ashamed to say i did something like that. now whenever i got to an interview i just dont know if it's worth bringing up to anybody or not. i graduate from my class tomorrow and i'm looking for work desperately right now. i'm afraid nobody will hire me. i'm tired of being turned down from all of my interviews and i don't know what to do. from reading all of these feeds it sounds like there's hope for me yet! i not once got discouraged because i know if i don't own up to my responsibilities i won't get anywhere and and it'll just show i can be irresponsible. i really want a job right now and i'll do anything for some type of income. what should i do? should i be up front and tell the employer the truth. like someone else mentioned, i don't want the employer to picture me as a criminal and let that one mistake i made judge me for the person i really am even though i made one careless mistake for the first time in all 19 years of my life. what should i do?

    Wow congrats! Your story is very uplifting. I have a dui from feb. 2010 and I'm about to enter LVN school. I have a misdeameanor dui. I am scared that I will have a problem finding a job as that is the only arrest/conviction I have ever had in my life. Did you apply to a hospital or home health? What state are you in? I live in California by the way. Any comments is appreciated

    I have a similar question, but I have a very messed up situation. I have a felony in FL for a credit card charge. The state of FL revoked my licence, but I still have my license in another state. My question is this....... Can a nurse get hired with a felony on their record? The courts told me when I finished the terms of probation, that I could get it expunged. At that time I would be able to return to work I without a problem. Now I am finding out that felonies can't be expunged?. Can someone please shed some light on this for me. I am so upset and scared I may not be able to support my family in the future.
