I know no one can give me a definite answer. I guess I would like to know if Ga has a list of prohibited acts that would disqualify you like PA does. Is there like and Act or ordnance that I could look up?
I have tried to contact the board of nursing and they would give me an answer. They told me I would just have to wait and see when it was time for clinical.
I know they are protecting the public but just because someone did something in there past doesnt mean they would do it again.
I had a misdemeanor battery in 2001; became an LPN with a 6 month probationary license.
After 400+ applications and only 6 interviews, a D.O.N. finally told me that with any kind of assault and/or
battery charge, even of misdemeanor status, I cannot work anywhere that takes Medicare or Medicaid, as the
facility will get a mark against them if found out.
My state, Indiana, recently passed a law where misdemeanors over 8 years old can be sealed. In my case, since I was never convicted, I am hoping for total expungement. Otherwise, it is virtually impossible to get a job as an LPN in Indiana, at least.
