Nursing Licensure With A Criminal History

Nursing Licensure with a Criminal History discusses general information regarding how a criminal history affects the ability to obtain and/or renew a nursing license, secure a job, or enter a Nursing program. The individual's Board of Nursing (BON) has the final ruling when application for initial/renewal license is submitted. Each application is determined case-by-case and there are no set rules. Only your BON can accurately advise you. NOTE: All posts are moderated ... Each post needs approval prior to appearing in the section, a delay may occur.
