I'd like to start out by first saying hello to all, this is my first post so forgive me if I've put it in the wrong section or make any other like mistakes within. That being said, I am currently attending a CNA program and will be graduating shortly (NOV 16 2011) following the graduation date, I will be taking my CNA state exam on the 21st of NOV. However, I have a few minor charges which I immediately notified the BON about upon beginning school & have recently received a letter that brought me some concern. The letter is from the BON and is requesting a number of things concerning my prior convictions and the circumstances surrounding them. I am not particularly worried that these convictions will prevent me from being certified as a nursing assistant, I am however a little unsure of how to go about explaining these instances in question in a way that wont end up causing me more problems. I guess what I'm asking of those who respond is basically your experience, knowledge and whatever other relevant input you may have that may be of some use to me or others in this situation. Thank you for reading!!
