Many state nursing boards are reporting a 1400 percent increase in previous felony convictions among nurses applying for
nursing licenses since 1992. Is this just a sign of the times? Boundary violations are at an all time high and is a real
problem for state nursing boards. Employers ask on employment application forms "have you ever been convicted of
a crime". Should students be asked about criminal convictions prior to applying for nursing school? That's one deserving
student who gets bumped.
