- by CaryllM Jun 27, '11I was convicted of theft by unlawful taking and recieving stolen property both misdeameanors . and them crimes are @the list for the pennsylvania prohibited act 14 crime list. does this mean that i cannot become a nurse..i am accepted into a lpn school. i did not start yet. but i know when my clearences come back it will come up and i am worried..i already know the board of nursing says its a case by case basis. but then if thats the truth what does that list mean?
