I really want to enroll in school for nursing but I have a misdemeanor for shoplifting and it has been "set aside" in the state of Arizona. I want to know if I should even try to enroll because I already finished and graduated school for medical assistant in 2011 but with no avail of employment because of my background and lack of experience. I have asked my school if they would set me up with another internship but they would not.
I also don't know where to even start looking for starting my education again. Any help would be much appreciated.

Were you turned down for jobs due to a background check? If so, that will most likely prevent you from obtaining a job as a nurse also. You may need to look in another career direction.
