I have a misdemeanor on my record and i got it a couple of years back .. I now am considering nursing and i feel right about this..
Can someone tell me will this stop me from being a nurse because i really want this..
Questions we seem to be encountering more and more often have to do with the effects of a criminal history on nursing licensure:
Is it possible to become licensed as a nurse if you have a criminal history?
Is it possible to become licensed as a nurse if you have a MIP, DUI, or other related charges?
What happens if you are charged or convicted of a crime after licensure?
Can I go to nursing school and/or be licensed if my record has been sealed or expunged?
Will I be able to go to nursing school with a criminal record?
What can happen if I receive a MIP/DUI/DWI or other charge while still in school?
These are questions that the members of allnurses.com cannot answer. The only reliable source of information is your State Board of Nursing.
