Just wondering about that. I am a bit concerned. I have been arrested a couple of times. It wasnt anything major. My first husband was a jerk and got me into trouble. I was very young. I also had a wreck one time and the lady sued me and I could not afford to pay for damages. My license was suspended for a bit but I did pay that off.

The nurse programs all state if you have ever been arrested for anything you will need to get a Declaratory order. It was never anything crimal or anything.

So do you think I would have to get one? I have heard the process could take up to 2yrs. I hope I do not need this.

Its kinda embarressing asking the school so thought you guys may be able to help me. Has anyone had to do this before?

To answer your question of whether or not I've had to file - no I haven't. I don't know what state you are in, but in Texas the question is not whether or not you've been "arrested", but have you ever been "charged" with a "crime". Hope that helps a bit.

only your bon can answer your question but i can tell you that i had to file a declaratory order in texas because of a pi charge 18 years ago and the nursing board only took about two months to give me the ok to take the nclex upon completion of nursing school.
