Starting LPN Program At ATS Chicago With Criminal History

  1. Hi..... I'm gonna make this as brief as possible. I'm 23yrs old but considering starting lpn school at ATS Chicago but In January 2013 I was charged in Indiana with a Class D felony for theft and I pled guilty to it because I accepted a plea bargain that stated in the probation agreement that as long as I completed all terms of probation and stayed out of trouble I could petition to get the new indiana felony law treatment which is Class D felony get converted into Class A misdemeanor. Well I'll be off of probation March 2014 and am pretty sure my D felony will be reduced to a class a misdemeanor so I'm planning to move to Chicago, IL to attend ATS for my Lpn license August 2014. Now my questions are, Is ATS a good school to attend for Lpn and my other question is, Do you think with the school's FBI check policy I would still be considered for the program and accepted to do and complete clinicals?.... Thanks for any feedback or advice.

    Yes, An FBI Background Check. It's Explained On The ATS Website. It Also Says If You Already Have A Felony To Immediately Withdraw. A Class A Misdemeanor Isn't Considered A Felony So I Just Need Some Input On My Situation.
