TN BON decides tomorrow

  1. 3
    I'm a nervous wreck! I completed my BSN in May and applied to take the NCLEX, but my past criminal history (2 driving on revoked in 1996 and a failure to appear in 2009) have caused my application to go before a board for review. The failure to appear charge was for a misdemeanor that was dismissed, a mistake that I explained in my self letter to the BON. I talked with a person from the BON yesterday, and she told me that my application was going for review tomorrow (Jul 24) at 10am.
    I want to be hopeful, but so many threads with poor outcomes, it is difficult to maintain a positive attitude. The lady at the BON said she should know by 1pm tomorrow, so I will try to post the outcome. Wish me luck, and a few prayers wouldn't hurt either. I have worked so hard for this; it seems surreal that all my hard work may have been in vain.

    Good luck! I really think that it should go in your favor as they are traffic related offences, but not being from TN, I have no idea how tough their BON is on past criminal charges.

    Why was your DL revoked? Did you explain that to the BON? I'm sure they want to know.

    I had an at-fault accident when I was a kid and didn't have insurance. I told them EVERYTHING except what color socks I had on when I wrecked, and all about the failure to appear, too. I highly recommend being as upfront as possible when applying!
