I have a criminal history and I just spoke to the Complience Officer of Health Sciences at my school. She informed me that it is up to the clinical sites to clear me in order for me to continue in the nursing program, once accepted. I'm a bit discouraged now because the clinical sites are hospitals/clinics. I now need to plan to apply to more nursing schools, instead of just applying to my current school. Are there any nursing students/nurses currently in nursing school or completed nursing school in central or south Florida who were cleared to do clinicals by the hospitals/clinics, with a criminal background? What school did you attend? I am willing to relocate if I can't find a school with a clinical site that will accept me with a background in Florida. Any other suggestions for schools contracted with clinical sites who are understanding and are willing to seperate youth actions from adult actions?
