people have made mistakes in their lives and learned a valuable lesson so now why is it so hard for your past be your past and live for the future.
Hello everyone my name is is Melissa to be honest with you I just want some feed back on my situation, 17 years ago I was convicted of a a white collared crime that I didnt know it will haunt me for the rest of my life till this day I get very emotional about my situation I dont need any sympathy just feed back and honest answers.
I was convicted of 3 felonies that was accessory to credit card fraud forgery and grand larceny they gave me the same charge that they gave my friend at the time i guess it was because i knew her and we were great friends and i had a public defender that barely knew my name and I was young never got in trouble didnt know the law.
I have been trying to get in to nursing programs
and it seem like everyone is on the same page of not having convicted felonies on your record I am a CNA i obtain my licene 2015 and till this day i am still current CNA I took the state board for to become a CNA didnt have any problems when I told the Board of nursing that I was a convicted Felony I had to write a letter to explain what happen and how do i know i wouldnt get in trouble again
They accepted my letter and I havent had a problem I am in the health feild taking care of residents what is so bad that I can take care of the resident at a nursing facility but Im not a good person to obtain my LPN license or my RN I have my associates degree in Health Science.
I even went betyond and call the Board of Nursing and ask will it be hard for me to obtain my License and their response was if Youy can find a school that except your felonies It will not be a problem. So why is it a problem of me getting into a school for nursing? I dont understand I have came a long way to keep getting turned down I havent gotten in anymore trouble in 17 years I mean DANG I just want to help people I know I can be a Great nurse I just dont have anyone to sit there and say she has paid her depth off to society I have learned my lesson being at the right place at the wrong time can probably get you into trouble
I learned that I have been a productive person I love people I even got my rights back I even requested a PARDON from the governor which I check on for the status each moth its been a year and still nothing I dont know what to do I want to be a NURSE and show that People do make mistakes and they learned but it really feel like that society want you to continue on doing bad making bad decision on life but I want to continue to help to make people well and to show that all people arent BAD
I appolgize to all I just get into my emotions when it comes down to these rules of life when you made 1 bad decision in your early life that you have to continue to pay for it for the rest of your life I just wish someone will give me some answer or some information on how to get in a school that doesnt look at your past after a certain amount of time
well thanks for allowing me to post how i feel of wanting to be a nurse but my past will not let me go.
