I am planning to re-take the NCLEX and send out my application to the BRN. The problem is I was handed a misdemeanor for trespassing charge in October 13, 2011 for something that occurred back in May 2011. It was originally a petty theft charge but the judge decreased it to a trespass charge, 12 months unsupervised probation, 5 days community service, a fine and to stay out of the store it occurred in.
Since the decision, I have been volunteering, by choice, with a non-profit agency speaking to adult clients with HIV/AIDS and teenagers about health promotion at the same time teach them various skills in art. I have taken, on my own will, anti-theft classes which was completed successfully and I have also asked a dean from my school, a nurse and a cop to write letters support to show the BRN that I am a genuinely good person that have made a wrong decision. I have also paid the fine and completed my 5 days community service.
Do you guys know how long will it take for the BRN to make a decision and whether or not I will be allowed to take the NCLEX? Is there anything else I can do to help my case at this point? How does the BRN handle such cases?
