How can I be accepted to RN school with a class B misdemeanor?

co1984 co1984 (New) New

Hello. I'm in California and was charged with a class b misdemeanor two years ago. I pled guilty and had my case dismissed once my probation was over. I recently applied to a nursing program @ a community college and was accepted. I informed them of my misdemeanor and was declined the offer. Is there anything I can do to fight this? I was told that the problem would be when doing clinical rounds, the hospitals would not allow me to participate. What can I do?

What was the charge? Have you checked the laws in CA regarding acceptance to nursing school?

Possession of less than 1 oz. of marijuana

I don't understand why they wouldn't just have you run the background report and see if you pass, therefore, you would be able to do clinicals. I am also in CA..what is a class b?

California doesn't have class B misdemeanors. It's either an infraction, misdemeanor, gross misdemeanor or felony.

I think the reason your offer was rescinded was because it was 2 years ago. Most hospitals won't let people do clinicals with charges that are 2 years or less on their record.
