- Apr 28, '12 by DutchRN09What is a federal indicator?
- Apr 28, '12 by fthibodeauxIf you can get it discharged off of your record then great, but your first course of action is complete disclosure to the nursing school to which you are applying and to the State Board of Nursing when they conduct your background check. Don't try to lie or omit, you will be caught and then you'll have no chance of entry whatsoever. You may have some trouble getting into nursing school but you definitely will not be able to be licensed with any kind of felony on your record. I don't know what else I could tell you without knowing what your "federal indicator" is for.
