Is the worst of this over? My disciplined license

The0Walrus specializes in Psych.

So when I originally applied for my license I failed to disclose an arrest for a municipal ordinance. I paid a fee and had no limitations nor probation or suspension just the fine. Fast forward a year later and I have my BSN, I just got accepted into the wound, ostomy, continence nursing program at the state university, someone told me that I maybe getting accepted into the Psychiatry DNP program. I have had offers for nursing homes, 2 of the biggest hospitals in the state and I work at the state hospital's psych unit. I am still a bit nervous about my license. Is it safe to say that I don't have to worry so much about my license being an issue?

Hope someone can help me here. Thanks!

Also-panic and anxiety can cause hideous behavior. I am not faulting you for that- it is self-defense that a psychiatrist should understand. But if you are that hyped up that you lost it with the doc, imagine being at work when some belligerent patient or family starts calling you names and threatening to sue over some perceived slight. Nursing takes intense self-control.

I think you put this on the wrong post. 😉

It depends on what you did I think. Some municipal offenses might not be considered a crime. Others might.

And you would be right...I had two pages open. Embarrassing.😳

Did you end up being able to continue working w discipline on your license?  Have you had any issues with HR departments?
