Well i have been a pre nursing student for about 2 years now. I have had big plans of graduating nursing school and going on to my career as well as furthering my career.
To be honest though, my past is a little shady. I have theft charge from 2006 for getting caught doing a dine n dash...i was caught with an unregistered unloaded firearm in 2008, and also I falsely represented myself to an officer in 2008. I also have numerous traffic offenses including driving on suspended license twice. Also I have 3-4 possession of cannabis tickets (1-10 grams). The school I am applying to asked me to fill out a background check form and I did. I have a feeling that they might not accept me though. I have since reformed myself and got on a straight path.
I am aware that even if i get accepted to a school, I will probably face issues with getting licensed as well as getting hired.
Any thoughts on my situation would be greatly appreciated. Be as brutally honest as you can, I don't mind.
Quote from Stephalump
What state are you in? In some states you can actually start the whole "declaratory order" process done before you even apply for nursing school so there isn't a bunch of time wasted in school if the BON won't even license you.
I live in Illinois! Do you know if that is available in Illinois by any chance?
