Can i become a nurse if i have a crime in the prohibuted act 14?

  1. 0 I 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?

    This is something we can not answer as the BON will review each case individually and bas e their decision on the documents you provide

    There is just no way we can answer this question. Only your Nursing program and the BON can address these issues.

    Good luck
