I have been reading all these post for a while and I had promised myself that once my issues got resolved I will put a post for those out there who needs help.
I had criminal background that happened 13 years ago and I just graduated from nursing school
. I was trying to resolve it so I don't have to say yes for the criminal record on my application. Well, everyone knows how it is with lawyers and courts. I kept on getting dates far from my graduation date. I was looking forward to taking the test and getting my license and all of a sudden my life was on hold.
I went on the department of health website read the information and braced myself for the worst.
For those of you out there with criminal records have your paper work ready before you graduate. It is not end of the world. I got approval and took the test and passed and now I am registered nurse.
I just wanted everyone to know it is possible. Be truthful and have your paperwork ready so you can apply right away.
