    I think you will be OK. I met a traveling RN in Wyoming who told me she killed her husband and did prison time for it. She then became an RN. I don't know if she was just incredibly lucky or if each state is different.Good luck

    thank you. I never went to prison and since it was my first offense and the crime was non-violent, They gave me a deal wich I can ay that I am not a conicted felon. If anyone asks on any application to put down any conviction of a felony. I under the law can say no. Now if they ask for any offense, then obviously I have to list it. Thank you Donna
