I just wanted to post my success story for those dealing with criminal background, I have several summary offenses on my record, like disorderly conduct, harassment, etc, but only one shows up on a background check, retail theft, I got caught stealing in 2013 with my ex boyfriend, I didn't do the stealing but I also turned a blind eye to him stealing, so we both were charged. I got my nursing license in 2014, with no issues, but I had a few disappointments when it came to jobs. But finally I got a job as a 1:1 school nurse, working with elementary school children, and also a job as a floor nurse in an assisted living facility. Both saw my background and after reviewing it with the administrator of the companies, offered me a position. So with prayer and lots of faith in God it is possible to get a job with a criminal record. I wish everyone the best of luck and also myself as a have an interview on Friday!
