How long will it take to get a response from the BON for a deficiency checklist?

  1. 0 I have a misdemeanor on my record from 3 years ago that the BON is now requesting court documents and a letter of explanation of my circumstances. This is all new territory for me and I am terrified that I have worked so hard to getting through nursing school and pass my boards on the first time. Only to have this one mistake not let me be the nurse I worked so hard to become. Any advice you can give me would be helpful and much appreciated. One other question, do you know how long it will take when I send the court documentation along with my letter to the BON to hear a response back on whether or not they will allow me to have my license? I was told by my lawyer that I should check no on the conviction of a misdemeanor because I pled no contest. So he said that I should check no on being convicted of a misdemeanor. My lawyer said that I could get this expunged in 3-5 years and that It would no longer be an issue for me.

    I am currently in the same situation. Can you tell me what your outcome was? My charges were dropped 4 years ago, and I am unsure how to approach the personal statement. I can't even imagine my life if I do not get my RN license . One mistake could potentially stop my entire career. I am so frustrated and have no idea where to go for answers or help. How long does it take to hear back from them? I have an interview coming up and I'm just preparing myself for the fact that even if i get the job, I most likely won't have my license in time. I can't find any other information anywhere expect for your post.
