]Hello Everyone, I am truly in need of help. I am currently an LPN student due to graduate in 3 weeks. I have a criminal charge of felony attempted attempted assault pending (Yes attempted attempted assault!) in New York State. I have obtained letters of recommendation for the BON to enclose with my application and now my Nursing Director tells me that I need to write a letter of explanation as well. I have no clue as to how to start the letter off or what to say
I know that I need to be truthful but I don't want to make myself seem like a bad person because I'm not. I have no prior convictions, this is my first time ever being in trouble and point blank my emotions got the best of me and I displayed reckless actions. Has anyone ever written a letter of explanation? I'm in need of any pointers because I am sitting here in front of a blank sheet of paper.Thank you in advance!
