Hi everyone, I am getting ready to apply for my RN license after lots of work and study.
I did not go to traditional school and do not have a diploma. So I am wondering if BON will check and see if I went to the school I put on my application ?
I know most of you are thinking I have no business as a nurse without schooling. **Wait.* *Let me explain my experience a little. I had a unfortunate teenage life that got me 8-years in prison, in prison I spent a lot of time in the hospital ward where I feel in love with nursing. I became a helper and learned everything I could learn about nursing.
I spent ALL of my time ether being a nurse, reading books about nursing, watching TV about nursing, talking to other nurses about nursing... I love everything about nursing..
Now I am free and I am ready to be a nurse on the outside. I have studied the application I will leave out my criminal past but I am not sure if BON will check if I went to nursing school
Any information I can get on this will be very helpful.
