I just applied to take the boards and I am so worried because I have a criminal record. I know the BRN handles things case by case. I am just wondering if anyone has had a prior conviction involving narcotics and or recieving stolen property and been able to take the boards. My convictions are over 10 years ago. I have been a steller student and provided many letters of recommendation and had my cases expunged. I am so anxious right now as my lively hood depends on this.
