If anyone can give me some feedback on the following situation I am facing it would be greatly appreciated.
I am in the state of FL, and I have a recent conviction on my record for Grand Theft. Nevertheless, I have found a school that has accepted me into their nursing program and I am scheduled to start next week. When I got accepted I thought to myself that either they were over looking my record or they completely missed it. Well this week I found out they failed to do the background check prior to admitting me and now a few days before I am to start they have just recieved it. Needless to say, they are considering rescinding the offer of acceptance into the program because they feel they will not be able to get me placed at a site to complete my clinicals with my background. I have begged them to reconsider and offered to locate my own clinical site and take the burden off of the school. Although they have not made their final decision, I am very hopeful. But I am worried beyond belief that I too will not be able to find a place to complete my clinicals. I am thinking of presenting myself as a nursing student to local clinics looking for volunteer hours. But I am just not sure if this will work.
Has anyone been down this road, or can offer any advice?
