Can I still be accepted to Nurse Anesthesisa with Academic Violation on transcript?

I'm 24 years old and I've been a nurse in ICU for about two years. Besides the violations, I have a 3.8 GPA, extensive record of volunteering and so forth. I've taken my GRE and scored exceptionally well, so I am ready to apply to various CRNA programs, but the following issues may pose as an issue for applying. Back in nursing school, I signed this Exam Affirmation document, without being clear on the fact I needed to successfully run an application and use it, and as a result, I was deemed as violating my academic integrity policy at my school. In addition to that, my instructor filed violation of code of conduct against me because she felt I was "unprofessional" with her. Several of the nurses in my family tell me that this may not be an issue when applying for graduate programs, providing I thoroughly explain the past issue. Would this prevent many schools from accepting me?

I have no idea what this means. Can you explain this further?

There was a document that I was supposed to sign, which affirms that I successfully downloaded an application (needed for the course, to take exams) and had completed a practice test. I had not completed the practice tests, but had downloaded said application. The conditions of the document were, if you signed this document and have not completed all of the tasks that you affirm to, you will be in violation of Academic Integrity Policy. Silly me, I was not paying attention, and signed this document prior to reading it in its entirety. I hope that this was a better elaboration lol; sorry about the initial, vague one :smug:

Sounds like a stupid mistake you did awhile ago that should not hold you back now. It is on your transcript, but if you have numerous jobs and experience in the field for the last few years, I don't see why it should hold you back. If any doubt, once you send in your transcript, locate the dean of the program you would like to attend and explain everything on a personal level to them so they understand where you are coming from.

Were you ever dismissed from school? Do you have academic dishonesty on your transcript?

Most will give you the option to explain yourself. I would request a transcript for yourself to see what was on it. However, given the competitiveness of the program, it will probably be very hard to get into the program.

Academic integrity*

I didn't know until then, that there exists a difference between academic integrity and academic dishonesty.
